Greetings.

I'm Jay Samson and I do awesome UX & Visual Design.

I enjoy creating wonderfully pleasing user experiences through problem solving and thoughtful visual design. With my early work at start-ups and my latest job at a large corporation, my skills have gone beyond “making pretty pictures” and into a deep knowledge of e-commerce, user experience, computer interaction, web analytics, and the ability to knock-out designs in a crunch.

  1. Insight Icons

    Look for icons like this to read more information about a project. You'll learn about my thought process and reasonings.

  1. The Challenge

    Symantec tasked employees to come up with a solution to a SKU intake & deployment process that required multiple users touching Excel documents and taking too much time.

    Navigate these slides to see how we won this Hack-A-Thon.

  1. Finding The Problem

    First, we started from the beginning. To find the root cause of the issue. This led us to a lone man in charge of all SKU's. Which then goes through tedious tasks of modifying multiple Excel documents and approvals. This is where our idea formed.

  1. Solution

    Instead of multiple users touching multiple Excel documents. We created a single web app that allowed users to add, modify, update, and deploy SKU's depending on their user type. This cut out 2 major steps and decreased time by 30%.

  1. Prototype

    Built the prototype in Axure for quick ideation. You can view the Axure demo in the button below. Alternatively to help speed production, I built a prototype with Bootstrap. This prototype is only available to see in person.

  1. Web App

    The app allowed users to login using their current company credentials. This login set them as either a requester or an approver. Modifying Excel documents was no longer needed for the first half of this process.

  1. Winning

    Out of the dozens of teams finding a solution. Our solution won because it was easy to implement and most importantly it was a short-term solution with long-term potential.

  1. Problem

    Symantec's released Norton Hotspot Privacy, a brand new, different product than our core security line. We did not have a landing page suited for it's features and promotions.

  1. Solution

    Design a new landing page tailored to the product features and benefits. The pricing table takes first priority, showing price deals for longer term subscriptions. This gives the feeling of a deal, especially when we're not able to discount the product.

  1. Interaction

    Scrolling down the page has the user following a path, getting the sense of motion and travel. This emotional interaction drives the point of practical uses and benefits.
