The Map is Not the Territory

Hello! My name is Jesse and I'm a designer. The headline above is pretty important to me—in one short package it conveys the idea that while our everyday experience is made up of many convenient abstractions, it's still important to journey to the real terrain underneath to experience new things that resist easy translation. I believe good design is about building tools that are simple yet help us move foward through the undiscovered territory of our lives. Check out my work on Momentum Dashboard, Alaska Pacific University, and at The White House. Feel free to say hello!
