About Me

I‘m John Phillips, a UX Designer & Web Developer with 15 years experience designing and building for the web.

On twitter, I'm @infomongo.

I enjoy creating prototypes. Prototypes are a quick way to explore an idea and get a feel for it. I use a couple of frameworks to speed the process up: Jekyll a ruby framework for creating static sites and Angular JS a JavaScript framework for creating applications.

Angular Apps

This ROI Calculator is a simple application created using Angular. I did the UX Design and much of the engineering, adapted from an existing project. It’s a simple marketing tool rather than a prototype, but it shows what Angular can do. Total dev time for this project was about 2 weeks.

Store Locators

At Placeable we created a platform that allowed us to quickly build store locators for our clients. I did the UX design of the templates used in the system. These were “skinned” with the site‘s branding. I was also part of the engineering team that built the system.

Some example sites:

Each of these sites has a mobile version, try visiting them on your phone.

The branding and graphic design was done by others. I did the UX design of the base templates, including the flow between pages and information hierarchy.

Bigger Brands

In addition to the standard templates, clients could choose to fully customize the sites. Bigger brands often went this route.
