I am Jason Collier!

As a designer with a background in music, I strive to create user experiences that are impactful and meaningful.

From an early age, the pursuit of creating has always resonated with me. Whether creating musical experiences or visual designs, the correlations are similar. Working in the music industry for the past
fifteen years has allowed me to immerse myself in different cultures, styles, sights, and sounds. Thus, the curating of my experiences in my existence offers a valuable perception to express on any canvas.

Studying and practicing design for the past two years has offered an outlet to distill the vibrant blend of my experiences to create powerful design solutions for others.


Designer with a critical eye for pixel-perfect detail; and the technical UI skills to execute human-centered solutions. I thrive at performing, communicating, and contributing to a team-driven atmosphere. With over 15 years of experience in highly collaborative roles, I excel at managing a team or being a strong foundation of support, contributing to the overall goal of winning together.
