User Experience Designer

Jarod Beukelman

Present
I love to immerse myself in the details of a user’s experience, distilling observations and dreaming about the ideal through the lenses of interaction, human factors, aesthetics and brand. My creative and technical expertise with many processes producing sketches, mock ups, animations, story boards and research tools play a valuable part in the communication of new ideas to broader audiences.

Past
Industrial Design Intern at JCB North America
BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Industrial Design and Furniture Design

Passion
Great design challenges.
Breaking down monstrous problems into digestible elements.
Turning the resourcefulness of diverse collaborations into creative energy.

Play
Cooking. I will destroy a kitchen for the smallest taste of decadence and culinary intrigue.
Biking, specifically in heavy traffic.
I have to admit it, I never grew out of video games.

What is your first memory of design thinking?
I kept a journal in the second grade full of crude drawings of my dream Nerf guns.
