Jackson D. Carson - UX/UI Creative Director

Jackson D. Carson

UX/UI Strategist and Pixelosopher

I help make the complex simple.

I help make the disparate cohesive.

I help new and growing companies build the bridge between the founders’ vision and their customers. I help them do big things and understand their customers while establishing a product-market fit.

I have decades of experience leading creative projects and teams of designers and developers to build delightful, harmonious, and innovative solutions to complex interaction and communication problems. I employ UX strategy and design thinking principles, user research, and qual/quant usage data to inform product definition and direction while maintaining alignment with business goals and end-user needs. UX strategy, design thinking, workshop facilitation, team mentorship, user experience design, product design, visual design, branding and marketing are all places I like to play.

I am UX/UI Director at SnapEngage, and a Lead UX mentor at Techstars in Boulder, Colorado.

Featured Project

Massive UX/UI App Refresh

User Experience Redesign
Coordinated a massive refresh of the MobileDay user experience on iOS. Guided and worked in collaboration with the creative agency, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, to ensure usability and business requirements were met. Led UX design sprints and team exercises with CP+B members to generate ideas. Worked with the agency to maintain the core one-touch experience of the app while exposing secondary features and focusing on enabling user goals. Adapted the visual UI designs delivered by CP+B to make them buildable by our mobile development team. Performed user testing and user reviews to validate assumptions. Iterated with dev to ship the app to great applause by our user base.
