Jared Caponi founded Exploded Map in 2009 as a nimble, independent consultancy to help improve the lives of people who use software every day.
Services include Information Architecture, User Experience Consulting, Digital Strategy and Product Development. I can also put together a team of visual designers and developers if you need somebody to take it all on.
I work with everyone from Start-Ups to digital Agencies, to Fortune 500 and 100 brands to make their digital products, services, user interfaces and online experiences the best they can be.
I especially like working on those forgotten applications that sit in the back of offices. You know the ones, the painful tracking system that your fulfillment or customer service team uses, the spreadsheet that the department created 5 years ago to make reports with. The one that, deep down, everybody knows should be a nicely designed web application. The logistics tool that was cobbled together by that guy who knew some .php. These apps are in every corner of enterprises and they cause pain, confusion and inefficiency.
Whether your customer is a consumer or an office worker, If you need somebody to solve a digital business problem, plan your rollout, or make a product easy to find, use and understand, we'd love to talk to you.
Let's just say I've have been around.
In one for or another I have been making and managing website builds since 1997. I programmed my first real piece of software in 1982 at computer camp (yes computer camp) on a TRS-80.
Below is a big wall of logos for companies and projects I have done work for since opening shop. Hopefully as you scroll down you will feel a sense of assurance that if you decide to work with me, you will be working with somebody that has deep experience.
