I'm Jules Simplicio, a product and front-end designer living in Chicago, and working on software for mobile research at dscout.

Background in design and web development. Practiced design in the past for Basecamp and Threadless as an apprentice. Experienced as a developer for a small scale, and fully funded, tech start up.

I conduct research, I wireframe on whiteboards, I write software interface copy, I create interactive prototypes, I test features with users, and I write and push code.

I am passionate about community. This year I spoke at an AIGA pannel about personal identity and diversity factors in life and the workplace. I also volunteer as a mentor and guest critic for UX and UI students at Designation.
