My name is
Jai Mitchell,

I'm a product designer currently at Ustwo.

I want to build great products with great teams, solve real problems for real people, and, hopefully improve someone's day, one interaction at a time.

About

Jai Mitchell

Hi, I'm Jai

I'm a product designer from Brisbane Australia, where I'm currently working with Ustwo to help Australia's public broadcaster transition from a traditionally project based workflow into adopting more of a product mindset.

Previously, I spent the first half of 2018 working on an app for some of Australia's biggest fitness brands, and the previous six years as a product designer and strategist with Josephmark, a world renowned product ventures studio from right here in Brisbane, where I worked on products across a diverse range of industries, business models, platforms, and audiences.

My definition of a ‘Product Designer’ is:

A ‘specialist generalist’. Someone who can work competently across the full product design process, often with a deeper knowledge in one or more specific areas.

Maybe I curated that definition to perfectly describe myself, I'm not sure, but either way I think this is a good description of how I can best (and how I most enjoy to) work with a product team.

I love breaking down the silos. Getting my hands dirty designing, building, and managing great products, whether that’s taking a product concept from zero to one, or attempting to take it from one to infinity.

Product strategy, interaction, prototyping and UI design are my areas of deeper knowledge (and competence). However, I’m also constantly trying to broaden my understanding into adjacent areas, such as: business modelling and strategy; product growth strategy; product metrics/analytics; behavioural psychology/economics; user research; and the more technical engineering side of actually developing products (#designersshouldlearncode #butonlyiftheywantto).

I have a near-insatiable curiosity, which can balance a thin line between blessing and curse, but I feel extremely privileged and lucky to have found a career that not only allows me to constantly feed it, but actually benefits from it.

Thanks for checking out my site. If you’ve read this far, please say hello. I'd really appreciate your feedback, and I'm always keen to meet new people who share my passion for great design.
