Jasper Stephenson

UX engineer, friendly ghost.

Hi! I'm Jasper, a UX Engineer and Designer based in Kyoto, Amsterdam, and San Francisco.

As a designer, I work across the spectrum of UX, interactive, and visual design with companies like Adobe and Adaptive Path. I also mentor up-and-coming designers, and occasionally find time to write about design topics like the intersection of games and UX.

As a developer, I design, build, and test full-stack experiences using tech like Vue, Node, and Firebase. While I lived in Tokyo, I built prototypes of new technologies with the research team at Cygames. I'm a tinkerer by nature, and I've always got a side project in the works.

Personally, I spent the last few years living in Japan (日本語も喋ります), but now I'm based in Amsterdam. I'm a huge traveler – from 2013 to 2017 I moved to seven new places, all carrying one backpack. I'm also an esports lover: Super Smash Bros. Melee, League of Legends, Starcraft (Brood War and 2), Overwatch, speedruns – I watch it all.

If you're interested in working together, or if you just want to know what I'm up to, don't hesitate to email me.
