Jack D. Davis
I’m a skilled product designer with diverse experience spanning video games, productivity tools, educational software, consumer electronics, web, mobile, desktop, and wearables. I'm also a capable leader with strong collaboration skills and business acumen (MBA). Above all, I'm passionate about collaborating with others to create great experiences that improve people's lives.
My general approach is to take the time to understand the problem, ideate, test the ideas, choose the best one, build it, ship it, monitor and continually improve it. And, of course, move freely among these modes as necessary.
When it comes to specific processes and methods, I believe every situation is unique. I carefully consider the team, culture, business/user goals, and figure out the best ways to work. I am proficient in a wide variety of product research and design methods to suit the situation, and am always striving to add to my knowledge.
