Jonnie Hallman is a principal design engineer based in Brooklyn, working at Era during the day and building Cushion at night.
My work focuses on building thoughtful, intuitive, and delightful interactions for the web, with a devotion to process, transparency, and sharing what I learn.
Before Stripe, I freelanced primarily for startups, focusing on animated marketing websites. For Casper, I built the homepage animations for casper.com to introduce their new sheets.
I also worked with Dropbox to build the websites for Carousel and Mailbox—their short-lived photo and email apps.
My greatest hit was the FiftyThree Pencil landing page—a collaboration with the FiftyThree team to debut their first piece of hardware.
After riding the freelance roller coaster for several years, I built my own app to bring peace of mind to freelancers by visualizing their schedule and income from a bird’s eye view.
