Eric Bowden – Division Director @ Centeva
I have personally worked closely with Jason and have found him to be a very detailed-oriented designer that significantly increased the quality and user engagement with our software product, OX Sports. In addition to designing the user experience of our software, Jason was also responsible for designing our marketing materials, including web site look and feel, collateral creation, booth design and layout, and branding. Jason has a high commitment to quality and will make an excellent addition to any design team.
Nathan Berry – Lead UX Design Engineer @ Centeva
Jason has a great understanding of the full UX process. He is a thorough researcher, and is very organized. Once he’s validated a design, he is also a very good UI designer. In addition to his UX responsibilities, Jason was also responsible for creating and maintaining our design system. Overall, Jason was a very valuable member of our design team. He really cares about design and about his team. He was always trying to get us to do team building exercises, and helping us hit goals both at work and with our side projects. I have no hesitation recommending Jason for any design team.
Shawn Butler – Managing Partner @ Relevant
Jason is a smart, detail-oriented problem solver who demonstrates a willingness to think through each project in depth, then go the extra mile to truly overdeliver. He is the kind of guy who’s not only willing to listen, but takes what he hears, offers recommendations, and then gets to work! Great experience, great follow-up and delivers fantastic results.
