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, from digital design to sound design.

But everyone needs some downtime. You'll find me often trying out new craft beers around town on an evening, biking along the Quayside or if the weather isn't too great, I'll lock up with a book and throw a vinyl on the player. Spotify's Daily Mix playlists have been my muse for a while now and that 'Jamz' playlist is getting pretty long now. I've just returned from a week and a half travelling the Baltics in January 2020 and already have Iceland booked up for November, which will be the 35th country I've visited. 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.
