Hi, I’m Jules Konig. I'm a multidisciplinary Visual Designer with over 15 years of experience crafting beautiful, award-winning design. Working on the agency side, I've had the opportunity to work on a wide variety of projects, some of which were for mobile phones, tablets, interactive tables, museum exhibits, art installations, in-store kiosks, corporate lobbies, iconic landmarks, and more. Throughout my career, I've always been on the front lines of innovation. Early on, I designed retail websites that redefined the online shopping and apparel customization experience. Later, I helped design first of its kind user interfaces for touch and gesture devices before touch and gesture was common place. I consider myself a design generalist, who specializes in tackling difficult challenges. I love every stage of the creative process and am passionate about exploring new technologies, software, and design techniques in order to become better at my craft. When I'm not at my desk, you'll probably find me at the dog park, on the golf course, or exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my family.
