Bjorn in a few words

Hi there!
I'm Bjorn, a Belgium raised & Berlin based UX Designer with several years of experience in translating online needs of organisations into convincing websites. I worked on projects in agencies, in house and on a freelance basis. My work varies from E-commerce platforms, applications and corporate websites (B2B and B2C).

My website: bjornjacobs.be

What I do:

1. User needs and business objectives
The user needs should be aligned with the business objectives. Knowing your users is key in developing a good UX strategy. During this phase persona's and customer journeys are created. A combination of qualitative and quantitative research methods are used.

2. Functional requirement
When you know your user, the functional requirements of your application or website can be defined. Must haves? Could haves? Won't haves? (MOSCOW analysis)

3. Interaction design / information architecture
Development of application flows and user flows to facilitate user tasks, defining how the user interacts with the site functionalities.

4. Interface and navigation design
Design of interface elements to facilitate the user's navigation. Creating lo and high fidelity wireframes and clickable prototype. I work with Axure RP and Sketch combined with Craft and Invision.

5. Visual design
Creating the "look-and-feel". Visual designing of text, page elements and navigational components.

6. Testing and optimisation
UX strategy never ends. It's a continuous cycle of testing and optimisation. User test on you prototypes, conversion optimisation, ...

Love to get in touch and talk about your project!
