About Me
Welcome to my website I am Ryan Jackson a Sr. Director of Product Design with 22 years of experience in the industry I’ve worked with Web, iOS, Android, and Windows 10. I started my career as a web designer for a small eCommerce as well as moonlighting as a freelancer. Eventually, I decided to get a Master of Science in Product Design and production Methodologies. For the last 12 years, I’ve helped ship products and build / lead design departments. I hope you enjoy the work and thank you for taking the time to visit.​​​​​​​

Design Leadership
I help grow other designers in best practices and understanding of tools, and processes. At the same time, I am an advocate for a data-driven and user-centric approach.

Project Management
I use my organizational skills to keep my teams accountable / on target with initiative deadlines by creating processes, roadmaps, backlog grooming, setting priorities, and utilizing tracking software. I help acclimate design teams to agile/scrum-based practices.

Utilizing a multi-disciplinary squad mixed with various brainstorming and buy in techniques we understand the problem from various perspectives to generate a prototype that can be tested. Utilizing the data we have allows us to be more accurate leading to successful features.

Data-Driven Approach

Using Analytic KPIs, User Testing, & A/B Testing, I leverage the data to create better-informed solutions and I show other designers how to understand the data.

User-Centric Approach
I specialize in creating organic systems that scale not only to screen size but to platforms. I take a systematic approach from understanding the problem to generating design solutions. I use a combo of data, standards, and stakeholder needs, to bring it all together.

UX & UI Standards
Utilizing established standards, testing, and visual design I can create/guide the interface of the product. I can establish a pattern library system that works across departments.
