👋

I'm Jason, a Product Designer who builds simple product experiences that delight.

I’ve spent the past 10+ years working across different areas of design; email design, marketing websites, brand design, frontend development, to designing UI/UX for digital products.

Most recently, I worked at Informed.co↗ as a Senior Product Designer. At Informed, I practiced user-centered design methodology to create impactful user experiences to increase customer success, and percieved value. Part of that meant creating and defining visual interface and interaction patterns in adherence to brand principles and usability guidelines.

However, I also actively contributed to brand design, institutionalized a design system, and took agency of design team operations, all while coding the experiences that I was creating.

At Informed, I worked alongside incredibly talented individuals and learned so much from them every day. Over time, I built influence within the organization, which allowed me to impact product strategy and create team processes that improved team output. These opportunities allowed me to sharpen my literacy and understanding in other areas of the organization.

Outside of my design world, you'll find me adventuring with my family, kicking back with friends, camping, hiking, snowboarding, supporting Liverpool Football Club, baking sourdough bread or trying out something completely new and unusual. Life begins where your comfort zone ends.
