About Me

Hi. I’m Parker Bennett, and I create and communicate for a living.

I’m a designer and front-end web developer, a writer and brand strategist. I have over 25 years of experience as a creative problem-solver.

I’ve worked in advertising, written and cartooned for magazines, written movies and TV, as well as geeky tech articles. I’ve helped create websites for Lionsgate, Universal, and Sony Pictures, and more recently for the Redford Center and Mendola Artists, working with the team at Logical Paths.

Have a project that needs a seasoned, professional hand? I hope you’ll get in touch.

Projects

Stackicons are icon fonts for the web, designed to do more — with multiple button shapes and color styles, including a unique “multi-color” option. Stackicons offer some advantages over using SVG icons:

  • Easy styling and effects using CSS:
    colors, text-shadows, gradients, and more
  • CSS animations, transforms, and transitions
  • SASS mixins for different looks, hover effects, etc.
  • Responsive sizing using font size
  • Single http request, cached resources
  • Works in IE8
