Hi there! I'm Jimmy
Currently, I'm crafting product experiences at Jostle while living in Vancouver, Canada. Before this, I was at RED Academy where I spearheaded agency teams to build two mobile apps, three websites, a SaaS dashboard, and four product strategies.
I chose product design as my career path because I realized it was a position where I could leverage the full breadth of my diverse skill set. A melting pot of experiences in finance, project coordination, marketing, and design actually turned out to be ideal for crafting products and experiences that help people.
Back in 2015 I started learning design after work and on the weekends to add a creative outlet to my finance position.
Over the next few years, I'd fine-tune my craft and build a fantastic client list. This client list would eventually result in exciting opportunities to re-brand provincial organizations, craft advertising campaigns for startups and curate guides sent to 110,000+ residents.
A once in a lifetime opportunity
After a UI Design bootcamp producing websites, apps and brands for leading businesses in Vancouver, I received a scholarship from Rogers Communication (one of four recipients from 250+ applicants).
During the 6-month intensive program, I was the driving force leading agency teams 6 days a week through projects for industry clients ranging from international eCommerce brands to app startups.
Going viral-ish on AJ&Smart
One of the top highlights of my design career so far was having my portfolio featured on the AJ&Smart YouTube channel. To see my work complimented (and critiqued) on a channel I've learned so much from was completely surreal.
I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list
I love immersing myself in new foods and cultures. Seeing the world through a new lens and discovering what normal is from that perspective really motivates my wanderlust.
Feel free to reach out for more information, collab opportunities, or just a friendly hello.
