Creative Director / Designer-Developer
Back in the ’90s – the dawn of the Internet – Bien discovered opportunity. As a high school student, he began to explore the basics of website design and development, and by the time he was a high school junior, he and two friends took first place in an international web design competition, earning scholarships of $15,000 each. He went on to Penn State University to pursue his passion in film and video production.
After graduating, Bien cut his teeth working for television production companies in the Washington, DC region between 2002 and 2006. The experience he gained from working as an editor/producer on everything from promos to films and documentaries was invaluable. When he and his wife, Amber, decided to leave the DC area, it was clear they needed to focus on growing their business in the digital space.
Today, with over two decades of experience in all aspects of web design and custom application development, Bien is always driving forward as Creative Director at Concepcion Design. He focuses heavily on the marriage of design and usability and has a comprehensive understanding of functional design, information architecture, and storytelling through visual media. With the face of the internet changing so rapidly, Bien actively tests out new technologies as soon as they become available.
