I had the pleasure of being the Project Manager on multiple efforts where Jillian Hudson was the user experience expert. In this role she excelled in understanding the business objective and communicating the ideal user experience to both the developers and to our business partners. Our product had multiple constraints and Jillian effectively designed within the required parameters and delivered the work on time. We conducted several usability tests, formal and informal, and her background and experience was invaluable. Jillian is easy to work with….her quality standards are high, she’s enjoys sharing her knowledge, and has a maturity that immediately puts people at ease. Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative
Elaine McNaughton , Sr. Project Manager at American Airlines
Jillian has been the sole provider of User Experience guidance and screen design for the American Airlines Self Service Kiosk, for which I am a Technical Lead for software development. Her professionalism and in-depth understanding of the special needs of a kiosk environment have directly lead to the success of this highly visible product in diverting traffic from agents at airports and thus to substantial cost savings for the airline. Her visual layout and design skills have brought about the brand consistency and beauty of the current kiosk user interface. She is extremely attentive to details in integrating new ideas in such a way as to maintain that consistency and beauty. Her technical skills at helping us to switch to a Flex-based implementation sped that conversion throughout that agile project. She is a good communicator and a joy to work with. I have no reservations in recommending her for any job in visual design, application flow, or user experience standardization.
Bryan Helm, Technical Lead, American Airlines
JK and I worked together on the AA self-service system internationalization design. In spite of remarkable institutional barriers to success, JK provided excellent advice and highly workable designs. I loved working with her; she gives solid usable advice to developers, understand institutional processes, and still knows how to provide solid designs and design guidance. I hope for an opportunity to work with her again. Her skills are far too rare in mid- to large-scale software projects.
Jerry Andrews , Application Architect, American Airlines
During a Flex rewrite of a project JK acted as an entire user experience team, designing and controlling changes to design on every aspect of around 100 screens. She also worked closely with management, translators and developers in order to create a final product of which all participants can be proud.
John Valentino, Senior Consultant, Improving Enterprises
I met Jillian over three years ago when I was sourcing for a top notch UX expert for our team. Her polished professionalism and commitment to User Experience is unsurpassed. Her design skills and deep knowledge of how it supports and enhances branding are what make her truly unique. She is a well-rounded consultant who can lead user experience in enterprise-wide organizations. I would welcome the opportunity to work with her again any day!

It is my pleasure to recommend JK Hudson as a graphic designer, web designer and contributor to any general marketing effort. Ms. Hudson is diligent and efficient. Her overall knowledge of both the web media and the print media is current and she continually keeps her skill sets up to date.
Ms Hudson works well with others who may have raw ideas but not the knowledge of how to make them happen as well as those who know exactly what they want. She works hard to understand the objective of each project and accepts change in direction or approach comfortably. She manages vendors well and quickly earns their trust and respect. She is always willing to expand her horizons. Ms. Hudson has gained extensive knowledge related to designing and implementing medium-scale trade show projects.
Ms. Hudson is proficient with the MAC as well as the PC graphic and design software.

JK is very intuitive to client needs. Her skills with design are outstanding. I work in an industry that is riddled with low quality websites. I get frequent complements on the layout and appearance of my website that JK created for me. I highly recommend JK Hudson for any web development project.
