    My last name is Verhine, pronounced like wolverine.

    Hi, I'm J.J.

    I'm a Designer & Developer Hybrid positioned at the intersections of Brand Design, User Experience Research, Interface Design, Interactive Prototyping and Front-end Development.

    Download my résumé, if you'd like.

    Tools & Frameworks

    I've built several different kinds of websites from scratch. Many are built on the WordPress platform. I'm able to code HTML, PHP, CSS and Javascript by hand for a polished experience that looks right and feels right. I'm comfortable prototyping in After Effects and other tools. I've been using Sketch as my primary design tool since 2016. I've also spent a considerable amount of time in Adobe XD & Figma. Tools change all the time and I'm not afraid to embrace new ones. (I began my career building interactive UI as a Flash Designer, after all.)

    How I Operate

    Through the years, I've gained experience directly managing client expectations when carrying small to medium projects all the way from conception to completion.

    I've learned how to tell the client things that they might need to know, but are afraid to hear. I'm well versed in working remotely and independently and consider myself to be a self-starter. I'm comfortable within a narrower UX, UI or Development role as part of a larger team, and I'm often used as a bridge between design and development. I consider myself to be a Designer above all, so if I'm in a situation where all I'm doing is programming, I value having a voice with regard to creative implementation, interaction and style.

    Design Process

    I believe in sharing work early in the design process. I always get my ideas on paper during a short sketch process with the intention of building a proof-of-concept as soon as possible. My next priority is to leverage internal and/or team feedback to validate or invalidate my initial assumptions about possible solutions, adjust those assumptions, and then branch off into new directions. A generous amount of hours in this discovery phase almost always results in a more fruitful and considered end-product.

    What sets me apart?

    The Great Fran Tarkenton goes rogue and says a few outlandish things about me.

    Having practical knowledge of the development process allows me to design experiences that feel natural and can actually be built.

    I'm able to work without an ego and generate my own ideas, but also humble when fleshing out someone else's ideas. I value precision while also maintaining a mindful awareness that "done is better than perfect." I know when to sacrifice quality for speed, but also how to be resourceful at balancing the two.

    Previously

    I was a young designer on a segment of reality tv a long time ago. It's kind of silly, you could skip it.

    I've done work for KB Home, Ford, Atomized, P&G, Gap, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, MetroPCS, Valvoline, AtEdge, Green Feather, North American Properties, Coca-Cola, Wrigly/MARS, Sunrun, Walmart, Publix, Cadillac Jack, Equifax, IHG, Gap, MetLife and Reynolds Plantation, Game of Thumbs, ForeverHome, Turner Sports, Ogilvy & Mather, Artistry, Windmark Recording, GoSmallBiz, Tarkenton Financial, Finestone & Morris, Who's Next, All Out Custom Cycles.
