I am an accomplished UI/web designer with over 15 years of experience managing the design and implementation of multiple websites and online applications for desktop and mobile. Focused on delivering custom designed responsive websites based on user centered design from consumer insight, data analytics, research metrics, and business requirements.
An entrepreneurial attitude with a passion for forward thinking and problem solving. Experienced with presentations to clients and stakeholders. Strong multi team communications skills focused on getting projects completed efficiently and on time.
In late 2019, I set out on my own to expand my own business, Jake Parrott Creative, as a freelance and contract web designer. Since then, I have been producing web designs and creative materials for several businesses across the nation.
Like everyone, I was born. Soon after, I started drawing and loved it. Then got a computer and was instantly hooked. I thought, what could be better than creating art on a computer. And thats how it all began.
Strong understanding of WordPress native capabilities, proficient at designing, developing custom themes and plugins from scratch and utilizing custom fields using ACF Pro and design features from Elementor. Experience with integrating API calls for large data feeds.
Designed, developed and managed numerous WordPress websites from small business to large enterprise ecommerce/Lead generation websites.
Developed several custom plugins to provide custom solutions to front end user experience and back end admin usability.
Proficient with Wireframing and prototyping software like Adobe XD and Sketch.
Skilled at designing for web and print using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.
Experienced with video production through Adobe Premiere and After Effects.
Throughout my career, I’ve been able to work with some great teams, great companies and lead on several great projects.
Large website was in need of a new foundation and design. I lead the project with a focus to improve performance, introduce a responsive design, and increase sales and lead generation based on consumer insights, and research analytics. Website was built on a WordPress platform with complete custom developed template and plugins to ensure performance, security, and usability.
Lead the redesign of the web application to improve the UX/UI and modernize the application to be mobile friendly and user centered. This lead to a significant increase and retention of large corporate and government accounts.
Approached by a business to lead the project of redesigning and developing the company website. I designed and developed a completely new website through a custom developed WordPress theme that was fundamental to a 130% revenue increase over two years.
Witnessed production margins decreasing with faster project timelines and smaller client budgets. Took initiative to restructure and develop the flagship research tool. Production time decreased by 33% and the respondent success/completion rate improved in online surveys.
Approached to lead the redesign and execution of the email marketing campaigns. Created a dynamic delivery application that targeted segmented subscriber groups. Results: Near 50% increase in email open rates and 30% increase click through/purchase rates.
Charged with improving the experience of research respondents. Designed new user experience interface, which reduced the project development time by nearly 20%, and lead to better research results and higher completion rates of surveys.
Over the last 15 years, I’ve worked for large and small companies to help strengthen their marketing and communication. Below is my work history.

Testimonials and Kind Words from Colleagues
I build a relationship with you and continue to help support your business. I don’t just build a website and leave you behind. Other clients of mine love that I’m a simple email, phone call or text away from their creative needs.
I work hard to make sure I exceed your expectations while doing everything at affordable prices and always communicating with you to make sure we are both on the same page.
I’m fast. But not too fast. I make sure that the project is done properly and effectively. A poorly coded website or badly designed brochure is not going to help you or me. Your project is an important for your ROI. But I also view it as a reflection of you and myself, so I strive for a solid design and smooth execution every time.
