Hello, I'm Jason Fukura

User Experience Architect

User Experience is more than just wireframes and prototypes. Your vision requires an understanding of user psychology and how to shape the path of the people who interact with your product. My diverse skill set can take a project from inception to a real, HTML prototype. Once tested, it can quickly be pivoted to a product.

About Me

With a diverse career path, I bring a lot of unique experience to the table. A degree in education that allowed me to focus on psychology set me up to quickly move from just a graphic designer to a User Experience Designer.

I have had the opportunity to work with large corporations like Capital One, small, family-owned businesses, and everything in-between. From SEO and SEM optimizations to designing and developing fully-functional web applications in JavaScript and Python, my experience allows me to view the whole project and break down each part into an actionable task and plan.

From Information Architecture through User Testing, wireframes, prototypes, and pixel-perfect designs, I can then take the project to the next level by developing production-ready code in HTML, SASS, JavaScript, and Python.

I have also gained valuable insight into creating WCAG 2.0 compliant and secure websites through my experiences at Capital One and CI Security.
