Hi, I'm Jason.
I'm a designer focusing on the UX and strategy of digital products.
I've been lucky enough to design for clients like Lululemon, Amazon, Postmates, Noon Home, and IDEO - among many others. My work has won awards from Red Dot, Time, the Wall Street Journal, and more.
Currently I'm working at WOKE Studio, freelancing for clients all over the world, reading lots, and writing pop music.
Where I Come From
I've been designing products, systems, and doohickeys since childhood in Nanaimo, BC. I've always looked at the world with curiousity and a desire to learn.
I attended the Industrial Design program at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, where I gained a strong grounding in the process of creating desirable, usable products that solve real problems. As I moved closer to graduation in 2014, I started to realize how many interesting problems didn't involve designing a piece of hardware at all.
Since then, I've worked on a lot of software products and a handful of hardware products, often for companies that make software and hardware that work together. I don't see hard boundaries between design disciplines, just things I have experience with and things I'd like to learn more about.
Where I'm Headed
As I've started spending more time working directly with clients and leading design projects, I've also started becoming more interested in product strategy and business. There are a lot of interesting problems that don't involve what we'd typically think of as "design", and I'm excited to start venturing into new territory in the long term.
