FIDM Graphic Design Grad Jon Ezell works at Billabong USA as a Senior User Experience Designer. He works on apps, websites and even in-store touchscreen experiences. We were fortunate enough to have him takeover FIDM’s Instagram Stories. Come along with us as he takes us through a day in his professional life at Billabong USA.
First on the agenda is designing (and redesigning) the Billabong app for maximum efficiency and positive user experience. Ezell is responsible for making sure app users can find what they’re looking for with the least amount of effort, at the same time as making it visually dynamic. Take a look at his process below:

Q&A Time! Hear about Ezell’s FIDM Journey below. He graduated from FIDM in 2013 from the Graphic Design program with an emphasis on branding which prepared him for his position as Senior User Experience Designer at Billabong USA. He loved that his instructors taught based on their own experience in the industry, rather than just teaching a theory out of a textbook. His best advice to students is to get involved as much as you can while you’re at FIDM with all the programs and extracurricular activities that are put on.
