Jan Järfalk

I’m a 27 year old UX loving javascript developer, but I’m not sure what I don’t do anymore. I love every single bit of a web project, even the part where things hit the fan… I like challenges. For better or worse I see to it that I’m a part of every stage from pitch to release. I sometimes use the title ‘Creative Technologist’ to sum up all this fuzziness. I have been working with the web since 2003 and is currently employed at a Swedish web studio named Circuit.
