About Me

My name is Jake Fernandes:
UX/UI designer, music producer and globetrotter based in Newcastle, UK.

Life's Passions

Being creative is my biggest motivation in life. The thrill of designing, exploring and traversing new territory is a feeling like no other. That's why I love to get my hands on anything creative regardless of my experience - there's always opportunity to learn and grow.



But everyone needs some downtime. Music is pretty much the life and soul of me - my New Year's Resolution for 2021 is to listen to a new album every day. I'm constantly updating my playlist depending on what's peaking my interest, you can check out the current rotation on the right. Asides from music, I'm always thinking or planning my next trip away. I've already visited 34 countries, backpacking across Central Europe, the Balkans, the Baltics, and South-Eastern Asia. My next big goal is to backpack across South America... but let's get this pandemic out of the way first! Feel free to reach out to me any time. We can talk about design, travel, technology or share a few tracks between each other. There's always interesting conversations to have and I'm always willing to chat over a coffee or pull up a zoom call.
