Hi, I'm Jim Silverman, New Jersey's best digital product designer.* I make complex things look and feel simple.
For the past decade or so, I've been constantly challenging myself to learn new skills and technologies to create the most straightforward, usable, and enjoyable user experience possible – from concept to implementation.
In my free time, you might find me enjoying family time with my wife and kid, sipping the occasional craft beer or bourbon, or just tinkering with this site or another.
I'm currently employed full-time, but am available for freelance work or the right opportunity, and would love to hear from you. If you're interested in working together, please don't hesistate to contact me.
Fake news is so hot right now, so I'm working on a Chrome extension that actively notifies users of the facts surrounding viral stories.
