WHAT PEOPLE I'VE WORKED WITH THINK OF ME 

Me and Jorel connected over several different topics and experiences. He has a calming presence, and a lot of knowledge and insights. Jorel has helped me to focus my attention in design and where I want to go even more. Jorel has a cool name and you should ask him about why he got it!

Jorel helped me iron out the storytelling part of my portfolio presentation and even scheduled a follow up session with me. Really grateful for his help!

I cannot thank Jorel enough for his advice on interviewing, salary negotiation, and communication. I had an interview the next day and he helped me revise my answers to some of the questions I had prepared. Jorel was also easy to talk to and very welcoming. I felt this was critical because it was my first time meeting with him. Jorel made me feel confident in myself as a designer and made me feel proud of the work I've done thus far. The fact that he was willing to utilize his experience to provide interview and confidence tips has helped me drastically.

Amazing words of encouragement, and great advice that really helped. Even though I didn't ask for interview advice. Jorel's advice did carry through to an interview I had shortly after. I got the job!

Advocating for the user can be a tricky subject to navigate depending on your work environment, but through my discussion with Jorel I was able to gain a better understanding of what an advocate looks like. Both in terms of advocating for the user and also advocating for yourself in figuring out what's best for your own needs and goals. Jorel was very personable and made it easy for me to understand how he works and what has made him the designer he is today.

Jorel is an amazing creative director to work with. He is full of fresh ideas and his attention to detailing is top notch. Despite we were in different time zones, he would always stay up late to ensure that the work gets completed on time and his colleagues would not face any hardships. A super kind person at heart, Jorel is any given day fun to work with. A powerhouse!

Jorel and I worked for a couple of projects together and I always admire him for being responsive and always coming up with creative ideas. He is someone who asks and listens to what the room thinks about his designs, take any criticisms well, and work his magic to give us the best. Jorel is a go-getter and will do whatever it takes to get the job done well. Wherever he goes, any company will be lucky to have him.

Jorel is a top notch creative director. He is a talented designer that worked on many of my projects at Securly. I was always impressed with his work ethic, professionalism, and creativity. On dozens of occasions, he turned my straight-forward content, into a vivid, multi-dimensional asset that could be used for sales, marketing, print or web. Jorel is a fantastic communicator, staying on top of multiple projects at any given time as well as completing them with passion and purpose. I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Jorel and know that he would be an amazing contributor on any team.

I never worked directly with Jorel but from the first day I met him, he gained my utmost respect. There are many designers out there that are hard-working individuals. Then there are a few designers out there that have that God-given design talent. Then there are leaders (not managers) out there who have a unique ability to elevate each team member’s output through servant-leadership. And then are Creative Leaders like Jorel who have a rare combination of all 3: A hard-working, servant-leader with God-given talent and he uses that to benefit the team first. Jorel has the “it factor” and even though I never worked directly with Jorel, it was easy to see that this man is a rare breed and will make an incredible impact on any team he works with or for.

I have worked with Jorel at Securly. Whenever I need any design feedback I make sure to reach out to him, as he is the best at it. He has been collaborating with the team very well and on top of being a great designer, he is also an easy-going person. He is very creative, hands-on, and organized. He is the guy to go to when you need help with any design and is always open to discuss ideas and suggestions. I learned a lot about leadership from Jorel, and it was a pleasure to be managed by him.

Jorel has a strong sense of process and that is one of the great things about him. He wants to do the right thing to get the job done and in his time at Rubrik, I witnessed his great collaboration skills when he worked closely with product designers on their visual design needs and his leadership skills leading the visual side of things.

Jorel is not afraid to get his hands dirty. Encouraging but also firm, he is able to get everyone on board with his vision while also listening to other points of view, openly asking for feedback, and identifying each individual team member's strengths. He sees everyone involved every step of the way, and never hesitates to give credit where credit is due. He is also a sufficient foosball player.

I worked with Jorel at WebEnertia on several projects including a website redesign for Couchbase and McAfee. Jorel brought a unique blend of creative vision and business acumen to the projects he led. What stood out to me was his ability to inspire UI/UX designers who were under pressure to meet deadlines and promote a collaborative design team environment. I learnt a lot from Jorel's extensive design and leadership experience!

I worked with Jorel on several FTUX projects and concept visualizations while we were at Rubrik. Jorel always tries to deliver the most trendy solution while embracing product needs. He is also a fun person to work with and a great resource for upgrading the visual side of a product area to the next level.

Jorel's ability to come up with creative solutions to various aspects of the product was unlike any I’ve seen before and made a dramatic impact on the way customers viewed the product. I was also impressed by Jorel’s ability to tackle design problems fast and efficiently, and his overall technical expertise that runs impressively deep. I gained a tremendous amount of knowledge from Jorel, and think he would be a great asset to any company. Moreover, he is very personable, and a true collaborator!

Jorel is the Mary Poppins of Creative Directors. What I mean by that is he swooped in and turned an ostensibly ragtag setup into a high-functioning, driven, and dedicated team. And he did it with what seemed like a snap of the finger. And he never stops smiling or laughing. A great energy mixed with clear vision.
