About Me

A Little About Myself

Hi. I'm Jim Silverman, digital product designer from New Jersey. With over a decade of experience, I take pride in creating efficient and enjoyable interfaces that help people do their work more effectively.

What I Know

"Product Design" is a broad term with varying definitions depending on who you ask, but my skills lean mostly on the pure user experience and interface design side of things. That includes everything from User Testing, A/B Testing, and Data Analysis to prototyping, visual design, and asset creation.

I'm also pretty good at front-end development—HTML, CSS and some light JavaScript. This is by no means my strong suit, but I find that it helps me communicate ideas better and collaborate with developers to push interfaces to the next level. In a pinch I can absolutely code basic stuff, but probably shouldn't be writing production code.

How I Do It

I practice the Lean UX methodology, meaning I like to get feedback as early an often as possible while iterating forward, never getting too bogged down with polishing design deliverables along the way. I’m most comfortable in an agile environment with open and honest communication that helps facilitate quick decision-making.

Who I've Worked With

Over the years I’ve enjoyed a wide array of experience, ranging from large global brands and SaaS products to small startups and local businesses, even some local politicians and non-profit organizations. The variety has helped shaped my skills in different ways.
