Jacob Heflin is a UX / UI Designer from Des Moines, IA.

In July 2016 I embarked on a new phase of my career as a UX / UI Designer with Integer, one of the world’s largest promotional, retail, and shopper marketing agencies. As a subject matter expert for designing digital interfaces I insure that we deliver world-class customer experiences for the industry-leading clients that we serve. Through content strategy, information architecture, voice and tone, interaction design, usability testing and interface development my skill-set covers the full gamut of UX / UI design. Some of the tools I’m proficient with are jQuery, SASS / LESS, HTML, Bootstrap, WordPress, PHP, Omnigraffle, Sketch, Photoshop and Illustrator.

Before Integer I was the Lead UX Designer at MITTERA, a creative digital communications company based in Des Moines. There I worked on everything from a presidential campaign’s digital ecosystem to major university websites and sporting goods retailers.

I received my B.S. in Interactive Digital Media: Visual Imaging from Northwest Missouri State University in 2008 and married my wonderful wife Rosie on May 15, 2010. Gordon and Ann are our children and they’re pretty awesome.

I gave a talk at World IA Day this year on UX Kits: What They Are & Why You Need Them. Check out all the pros that contributed to the day at the World IA Day Youtube channel.
