Jason A. Das
Who knew that my real love for drawing started from tracing art of Raphael. Not the Renaissance painter, but rather the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. From there I jumped backwards into my childhood life of things I loved. Drawing Star Wars, Transformers, The Simpsons, Disney & Warner Bros. characters.
Leap ahead came the love for video games and comics. This lead to more inspirations to drawing and refining my art skills. In high school I became “The Art Guy”. A role I relished during class projects.
During my years of Sheridan and George Brown College, I became more of a sketch master to eventually a brainstormer. Learning to think outside the box, approach the problem in a new direction, and not accepting for the status quo. Executing a perfect design required multiple revisions. Advertising was something I started learn the nuance and skill of designing the ad campaign and message for a brand.
My years of working in house and freelancing opportunities, has let me experience working for a variety of clients, needing my services. I love working within a collaborative team environment.
As I look towards the future of emerging technologies in web, mobile, AR/VR, AI, and voice, I am looking to position myself better as a UX & UI designer. I have taken courses and workshops by RED Academy, General Assembly, MaRS, and BrainStation. As I’ve engaged with the design community at meetups, learning from my peers, multiple hackathons, the knowledge I continue to absorb, I am ready for this new path. I’m always willing to help others with the knowledge I’ve learned, and I love seeing others succeed under my coaching and guidance.
In my spare time, I enjoy learning about and tasting new foods and cooking. I’m tuning into my daily podcasts or audiobook, with a cup of green tea. Taking in workshops and meetups for the things I love and continue to learn about, such as design, 3D modeling and animation. I like to flip through the pages of art books I collect, but have zero shelf space to store them.
