LegalZoom provides legal services to clients across the US. They have a cutting edge development and design team based in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Houston and London. I am involved in creating IOS & Android apps, Conversational User Interfaces along with much more digital geekiness.

Global Reach Partners

2016 - 2017

Lead Designer 

After FC Exchange was acquired by Global Reach Partners in January 2017, I took on the position as Lead Designer for Global Reach Partners. I continue to manage both brands and digital product experiences for both companies.

FC Exchange 

2015 - 2017

Lead Designer 

I joined FC Exchange, a FinTech company similar to TransferWise, to scope, design and build user centric digital products with their growing digital team, including webpages and online platforms. I reported into the Head of digital whilst also directing a rebrand with the Head of Marketing. I worked regularly with Senior management, running workshops to secure sign off at important milestones. My strategic planning and my hands on Agile approach allowed our products to be delivered quickly, and to a high user-friendly standard.

Dodo Designers

2011 - 2015

Digital Designer - UX, UI, UCD 

I started Dodo Designers from scratch and with limited professional knowledge but burning interest of the web world. Through persistent studying, and an enthusiasm for design, I helped many businesses, charities and individuals secure a professional identity online. I implemented UX methods in my web design workflow from 2013, quickly meeting my expectations that client research and a process based on lean methods and tested UX principles, creates less stress and greater profits for both me and my clients. 
Since 2011, I've been designing digital products for small businesses, startups, charities, individuals and global companies using user centred design methods. Some of these small businesses have grown into companies with multimillion pound turnover, with one startup reaching a funding target in early 2016. Since June 2015, I've been the Lead Designer for a Global Financial Services Company with over £5billion turnover.

PRIZE of a PRO Photoshoot of your artwork on the vehicle. Hey all you arty lot. I am soon to run out of MOT on my lovely little car. I feel that it would be such a shame to scrap the beast, as I cannot afford the time for the work that would need doing, […]

Here is a skateboard guitar

I built this some time ago now, and it worked! I stuck some cheap ass skateboard trucks onto the back of my guitar and rode it round for a sizeable chunk of time. Hill ride = no more skate guitar
"Jon has a very good understanding of UX and design principles and can communicate them clearly. He knew exactly what type of photographs he wanted to include in the site and worked with a photographer to obtain what he had in mind. He was a pleasure to work with and this was a great way for me to learn about UX and web design."
