Hello & Welcome
Relax, take a minute
and have a look around
My name is Jason Magee, I am a UX & UI designer
and this is my online portfolio
Sitecore experience award 2015
Creating a user-friendly site for stroke survivors depended heavily on dedicated research and extensive user testing throughout production phase. From the findings, I delivered a complex site with an emphasis on a simple, yet customisable design that meets the needs of each individual user. Clear prompts, minimal distractions and support tools all contribute to the success of the product.
AIMIA Award Highly Commended 2015, Webby Award Official Honoree 2015
I created a multi purpose solution for delivering a great experience for a range of targeted user groups, as identified by extensive user testing and client objectives. This included exposing a broader range of ACMI services and delivering a seamless booking experience (within the limitations of the existing framework), while also outputting to multiple ticketing providers.
I created a site with the key objective of converting customers. Using best practice methods I developed a seamless experience, focusing on building trust, developing a design with minimal page loads, specialised form design and minimising distractions. Ongoing A/B testing is vital in insuring conversation is optimised.

I worked closely with the analytics team to improve ongoing user engagement and was responsible for creating design solutions for the roll out of new products.

The site is currently going through a rebuild with a focus on greater responsive design and building community.

At Yahoo!Xtra I was an in-house web designer working across the site creating, developing and implementing Yahoo! Applications. This included client branded custom solution sites, web banners, wallpapers and general advertising. Success depended on creating aesthetically pleasing, user-friendly designs that met client objectives while keeping true to the Yahoo! Brand.
I have worked on multiple projects for 42 Below. The first was a competition site called Cocktail World Cup where I was responsible for the overall look and feel of the site while maintaining 42Below's vision and branding requirements. Another big project was designing their file depositary site. The success of the site rested upon a well planned and designed user interface.
