I’m Jondavid Ottenbacher. I’m a twenty-one-year-old living in Des Moines, Iowa. I’m a Junior at Drake University with a major in Digital Media Production and a minor in Graphic Design.

I’m originally from Fargo, North Dakota and moved to Des Moines in the summer of 2016 to study at Drake University. I plan to graduate in December of 2019, which was made possible with lots of summer classes (and online ones).

I’ve been fortunate to have experience in the field with web design, branding, and online content management. I hope to continue down the path of learning more about digital media and how it affects the way we interact with technology. 


How I got interested in design

I was first interested in design when I was exposed to excellent app design from the early desktop and mobile platforms. 

I was amazed at the level of intention designers took to make sure their users had a positive experience with their product. As I started to explore more about the people behind projects like this, I became fascinated with their process of executing these ideas. 

From the early days of using apps on iOS and Android, I was immediately drawn to the way these interfaces were constructed. At the time of using them, I had no idea how much time and energy was spent on minute details of these applications. 

Since then, I’ve expanded my interests into areas like animation, graphic design, and interaction design. I love learning more about how different types of people interact with digital products and catering to those needs.

I have a passion for designing digital content and I want to learn everything I can about the user experience field. I want to grow my skill set to meet those goals. 


Future projects and ways to contact me

Right now, I’m interested in working on projects involving:

  • Web/Mobile Design
