About Justin Pocta

Justin Pocta is a designer at Switch, living in Dallas, Texas again after wandering NYC for two wonderful years. Currently unavailable for freelance, but always up for friendly emails.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my work. I am a multidisciplinary designer with an interactive bent and an insatiable appetite for learning.

The past 10+ years I have been soaking up design from every source I could find. I’m fascinated with the potential of technology, which led me to learn HTML when I was in high school and has kept me closely tied in with the interactive side of the design field, but I do love getting my hands on great print work.

Thus far, I have had the pleasure of working in studios designing and coding websites, creating UX and UI for mobile apps, developing print pieces as well as working in-house at a startup doing all of the above—and wearing any other hat needed for the day.

My aim is to continue sharpening my skills and working with more great people on meaningful projects. I am excited to be doing exactly this with my good friends at Switch Creative.
