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, optimization, importance of a team, and the ability to knock-out designs in a crunch.
