Jacob Jelen

Hi! I'm Jacob

Product Designer

and Technologist.

I see technology as the great facilitator. The wheel.
The fire. Design is what decides how it touches our lives. I step into other people’s shoes, into minds of machines and I immerse myself in complex systems. I think about what should be done and how to do it. I think about what could be done and ask whether it should. I try, test, fail, learn and try again.
