With my Design background, I'm lucky to be on the front lines of how we'll be interacting with the growing number of devices that are now crucial to our lives. If we thought the last 10 years were amazing, wait until everything has a virtual interface that needs to be designed and tested - for ease-of-use, as well as for enjoyment.

Jeremy Johnson's Publications

  • Failing Fast & Learning Along the Way

    • Presentation @ Digital Dallas Summit
    Authors: Jeremy Johnson

    An overview of modern product design and development methodologies as it relates to User Experience.

  • So you want your interface to sell

    • Presentation
    Authors: Jeremy Johnson

    Early on as a Designer I had the privilege to work with some big brands, like: Verizon, Mission Foods, Nokia, and Sabre. Most of my projects were rooted in web applications. Which I loved, and was more than happy to work on as a UX Designer. But some designers took other paths, working on e-commerce sites, or perhaps lead generation. What has been hard to find recently is someone who's done both. I know I didn't know e-commerce to the degree I needed to when starting at GameStop - but learned quickly - luckily I've had some good teachers over the last couple of years.
