I'm Jules Simplicio.
I design and develop digital products.
I focus on user experience, user interfaces, design systems, and on product and software development.
- I currently build tools for social media managers to reach and understand their audience through Sprout Social.
- Empowered researchers to find the right people and run a combination of research methods to gather insights through dscout.
- Empowered artists to utilize ecommerce by creating their own online shop and selling custom products through Artist Shops, a Threadless product.
I was born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil. I currently live with my partner and our two cats in the Humboldt Park neighborhood of Chicago. In my spare time, you can find me spinning house music records, skateboarding, playing the guitar, and building personal apps.
My pronouns are they/them/theirs.
I participate in dialogues about community and design.
Friends in tech say...
Mike Joosse,In every instance, they provided thoughtful, specific feedback and truly cared about making it a growth experience for the students they worked with... Their dedication to helping the design community grow and flourish in Chicago is a prime example for our students, our other mentors and critics, and designers across the city.
