Jacob Heflin

UX / UI Designer


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

I’m currently the User Experience Lead at MITTERA, a creative digital agency based out of Des Moines. There I specialize in crafting user experiences through research, content strategy, information architecture, voice and tone, interaction design, usability testing and interface development. Some of the tools I’m proficient with are jQuery, SASS / LESS, HTML, Bootstrap, WordPress, PHP, Omnigraffle, Sketch, Photoshop and Illustrator.

From responsive websites to mobile apps, I take a lot of pride in working together with our incredibly talented team to create digital products that are modern, practical and beautiful for today’s users. My background in development and design runs the gamut from business and non-profit websites to geographic information systems and social networking.

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 official World IA Day Des Moines Youtube channel.
