Hello. My name is

Jon Vernon

I’m a creative professional who never shys away from a challenge. I’ve been working in the creative industry for the past 10+ years, tirelessly honing my skillset. Currently, I am a Lead UX Designer for one of the largest mobile service providers in the world. Here’s what I want you to do:
  • Take a look around
  • Check out some of my work
  • Send me a message (if you’re so inclined)
  • Have a great day!

Thank you for visiting!

Design

Design is my first love. Coming up with digital creations is one of the most inspiring and satisfying things I’ve ever experienced… and I still continue to learn.

Direction

Providing art/creative direction is a chance to not only contribute to making something great, it’s an opportunity to teach, mentor, and share my knowledge with others.

UX

It was 2010 when I first heard the term “user experience”.  Since that time, the concept and practice of UX has become a regular tool in my arsenal of skills.

Strategy
Strategy is a foundational principle that has become part of my thought process. It’s just as important to know the “why” as the “how”.

Capabilities

Delivering top-notch creative execution, one project at a time
There are a multitude of factors that go into any given project and, the better you understand those factors, the more effective you can be. That’s why I’ve spent much of my career learning the secondary and tertiary skills I need to continue to produce top-shelf quality work, on-time and on-budget.
