About Me


Updated September 2022

Will Callis is always at his desk, filling up his sketchbooks up with notes and meticulously arranging large collections of pixels.

Currently, he’s designing mobile and desktop web experiences for global clients at award-winning agency Salted Stone.

In his free time, he enjoys making weird noises on his computer (he calls it music), paying far too many monthly subscriptions to watch soccer, and sharing a good meme with his friends.
