Jen Witkowski started her career as a graphic designer but fell in love with web design after working on a small in-house website back in 2003. She’s now a Senior Interactive/UX designer with over ten years of experience. Jen loves creative problem solving and the creative research process. She always takes an opportunity to learn something new - from JavaScript at work to installing a new window at home.

Jen has experience working on everything from mobile apps to websites, including some branding and print work. She’s used that experience at Lullabot working with such clients as MSNBC, This Old House, the NYU School of Medicine, IBM, Carnegie Mellon University, and Ames Laboratory. Her work has ranged from creating intuitive user experiences for intricate, data-dense apps to designing navigational solutions for complex website hierarchies.

Her passion for design drove Jen to earn a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Computer Art from the Rochester Institute of Technology. She's an active teacher and mentor in the design community, having leveraged her experience to teach several workshops and serving as an adjunct professor at a local college teaching web & graphic design.

In her free time, Jen enjoys gardening, sailing, cooking, and spending time outdoors. You can often find her enjoying a good book on her patio on a sunny day. Jen and her rescue dog, Oreo, live in Buffalo, NY.
