I Am a New Machine

The Online Portfolio of Jay Carlson

Hi! I am a designer from South Dakota currently living near Denver, CO.

Jay Carlson

I've worked many different jobs ranging from being in a small, 5-man company, to Creative Director of another, to working with large corporations. All these positions have grown me in different ways and I try to utilize all that I've learned from each. UX, design, HTML5, CSS3, user testing...I take all of these tools and use them whenever I can.

Recently, I joined a new UX Team at THE WORLD'S FOREMOST OUTFITTER, but I'm also working on designing an iOS app, PHOTOGRAPHING ALL SORTS OF BEAUTFUL STUFF, and trying to keep up with OUR SON.

Outside of work, you can find me on my mountain bike, hiking & camping, listenting to metal, and driving my Jeep where most people wouldn't. I love to work with my hands as much as I can and I love fixing things on my own. My wife and I recently realized our dreams of living in the mountains. I took this new job, we packed up everything and moved to Colorado. We're enjoying the crisp air and exploring the mountains around Denver. I'm married to the most beautiful, loving, & God-fearing wife I could have asked for. She's my rock & my best friend, and she's the mother of our beautiful child. To put it shortly, God has truely blessed me!

I'm not sure what the future holds, but I know that God has a plan & that I can trust Him.

If you'd like to know more about me, or have a project you'd like to chat about, HIT ME UP. You can also find more random stuff from me HERE.
