A little bit about me

I’m a User Experience Designer that’s big on ideas and obsessed with designing innovative yet practical digital experiences. I’ve got over five years of commercial experience across a number of disciplines.

Born and raised in one of the most isolated cities in the world, I’ve spent my career (and a lot of my free time, too) learning about human behaviour and the many things that make us tick. This interest first led me to marketing, then to customer experience management, where I consulted with retailers and brands to show them how they could use digital technologies to bridge the gap between their physical and digital presences.

I quickly realised that I wanted to to move closer to the action, getting down and dirty designing the experiences themselves, and this led me to study the immersive UX course at General Assembly.

I think that technology has the potential to change lives and the potential to destroy them, too. I want to be part of the good bit (obviously), and am currently developing a number of personal projects, including an app that helps people reduce their meat consumption and a VR app that helps people overcome glossophobia. I usually try to make sites that help people who have the same problems as me.

In my spare time, I’m a hobbyist writer, gym-goer and coffee drinker. I’m currently obsessed with digital brutalism, Tristan Harris’ Time Well Spent movement, and Huel.

Like what you've heard? Let's grab a coffee.

What I’m good at:

  • Ideation & problem solving
  • Creative & design strategy
  • Visual Design (Sketch, Figma, Axure, Adobe Creative Suite)
  • Wireframing and prototyping (Invision & Marvel)
  • FED (mainly HTML & CSS)
  • SEO & Google Analytics
  • Copywriting
  • Team leadership
  • User Research
  • Stakeholder management
  • Other tech stuff: Github, Wordpress, Trello, Slack

How I do it:

I use the Double Diamond approach, with iterative design cycles following Lean/Agile methodologies. For evidence, check out my case studies.

What people say about me:

“Working with Jared was an excellent experience for MedicSpot. From the beginning, I found him to be an extremely knowledgeable UX designer and a creative thinker, and he and the team exceeded even our loftiest of expectations in their redesign of the doctor interface of the system. We were amazed at how quickly they understood the entire consultation process, interviewed lots of GPs and then came up with some incredible solutions to key problems for our doctors.

Their designs make it a lot easier for doctors to interact our patients, and we’re in the process of implementing them now.”

— Tarlochan Tor, founder of MedicSpot

“Over my time working with Jared, I found him to be a talented individual with a innate ability to see the needs and wants of customers. He successfully managed our digital projects from conception to implementation with high quality outputs and great client feedback.

He would be a tremendous asset to any team looking for a knowledgeable, outgoing and empathetic person with a broad set of skills. He also possesses a great team spirit and has excellent relationships at any level within an organisation.”

— Simon Etchells, Group Digital Director at Lick Creative

“Jared is an absolute well of knowledge and a true expert in his field (User-Experience Design). Working alongside great people brings about great results and our time at The Delta Group saw us deliver a brilliant end-product.

Sharp minded and a great critical thinker, Jared is continuously able to provide solid solutions when faced with challenging scenarios. Certainly a high quality addition to any creative digital team and I do hope we cross working paths once again.”
