I’m Justin McDowell, and I have over 20 years of experience making web and apps work better for the people who use them. I’m a designer and developer living in Olympia, Washington and serving anywhere remotely.

What I Can Do for You

UX Design The User Experience

I make websites and apps work better for people. I study the way people use your products, and design improvements based on their behavior.

UI Design The User Interface

I build interactive prototypes for responsive websites and mobile apps. I refine the details of user touch-points, such as icons, forms, buttons, color, and typography.

Visual Design The Look and Feel

I create logos, branding packages, style guides, and layout. I deliver polished end products that tell your story, and support your marketing goals.

Front-end UI Development HTML and CSS

I support front-end developers and search engine optimization with responsive layout, robust structure, and meticulous style. I guarantee that I can improve the way your front-end is built.

Selected Works

Washington’s Labor & Industries Department

I’ve done work on several public-facing and internal web applications for this state government agency.

The Evergreen State College

Over the course of seven years, I redesigned this non-traditional public school’s website twice, supported their front-end needs, and created an inter-departmental UX team.

Logos & Graphic Design

I’ve worked with a number of local and independent clients to improve their branding and achieve their marketing goals.

The Arbor Day Foundation

Working for this tree-planting non-profit gave me my earliest professional working skills, and allowed me to work with a group of people who are doing good for the world.
