About Jean-Paul Bonjour
Drawing inspiration from Hillman Curtis I launched into the technology industry with a fine art background in film. How crazy is that? Well, here’s to the crazy ones! I am a creative story teller who loves standing at the intersection of technology and liberal arts. I feel that Intuitive design and development best practices are complimentary colors that together ensure the absolute best possible user experience.
At Apple I adapted quickly to software engineering, seeing it as another paint brush in a new media designers tool palette. Later I began to leverage my visual story telling background to paint a vision that would inspire and motivate others around me.
I am a highly adaptable, futuristic thinker, but a creator at heart. I leverage my strategic thinking and intuitive ideas to distill the big picture down to its core fundamentals. I’m constantly asking myself ‘what problem are we trying to solve here? How can we make that as intuitive as possible? How can we connect with our users?’
Standing at the intersection of technology and liberal arts has been an inspirational and rewarding ride. I’ve had the privilege to lead fantastic groups of engineers and designers. I am so proud to see so many impactful areas where we have come together and changed peoples lives for the better.
Outside of the office I am an learning how to skateboard after the age of 40. Please pray for my money makers.
