Hello, I'm Jacob Medley UX/UI Designer & Digital Strategist


There is always a better way,
and together we can find it.

Design is about identifying and solving problems. Creating a delightful experience that keeps customers coming back. I want to work with like-minded people that love what they do and aspire to build incredible products.
