What's Designlab? Close


Jonathan Maimon

Based in Seattle, WA

I'm a rare bird—a freelance UX researcher. I also do UX design. A few years ago, I started in this industry with no experience, no academic background, and no artistic ability. Today, companies reach out to me to design their websites and mobile apps. I've been through the path you are about to embark on. With hard work and the right mentor, I'm confident in your ability to get there too.
