Picture of Jake Martin looking devilishly handsome

Hey there! My name is Jake Martin and I am a product innovator and designer. I believe that technology has afforded people limitless potential and I am passionate about helping them to reach it. My goal is always to create empathy between tech and its users, so the technology can understand the users’ interactions and the users can understand the technology’s reactions.

Originally from Fort Collins, CO, I am graduating this May from Auburn University as an involved member of its professionally accredited graphic design program. When I’m not designing, you can usually find me reading articles on Medium, doing yoga, playing the marimba I built, or listening to obscure indie game soundtracks and electro-swing.

I live for talking about design, meeting new people, and learning new things, so feel free to connect with me and say hello!
