Hello! My name is Jad Limcaco and I live in San Jose, California. By day, I work for SmartRecruiters as a product designer. On my spare time, I work on interesting side projects, play basketball, lift weights, drink coffee, watch the Lakers, eat ice cream and burgers, and explore the outdoors. I'm a Christian and graduated college with a degree in theology. I recently got married to the most amazing woman in the world. She did not tell me to say this.
I design digital products with a focus on usability and delightful user experiences. I try to solve problem through a process of user research, prototyping, and user testing. I also build sites that are user-friendly and built according to best-practice web standards. Over the past few years, I've enjoyed working with many clients that were pleased with my work.
I used to own Design Informer, a blog about web and graphic design. The blog started small as just a hobby, but in less than a year, it grew tremendously. Due to time constraints and school, I was unable to keep up with the growth of the blog, so I decided to sell it to Smashing Magazine.
I'm now working on a few different projects to fill my spare time. Famous Outfits features the best in celebrity men's style and fashion. Principle Repo is a collection of Principle resources that are available to download for free. Costume Wall is the best place to find a costume, and my latest project is GiftPlz, a site that helps you find the perfect gift for your family, friends and loved ones.

About This Website
This website was built responsively using HTML5, CSS and some jQuery magic. For the CMS, I'm currently using WordPress as the CMS, but am thinking of using Jekyll on my next build. Fonts are served through Google Fonts. For the photo grid, I'm using Masonry (Thanks David DeSandro), and for the lightbox, I decided to customize this jQuery plugin by Osvaldas Valutis. All photos on the website were taken by me.
