I'm Jay Wilburn, Full Stack Developer and UX Designer.

About Me

I'm a full stack developer and UX designer from Chicago, IL. I've been in web development for over 7 years. I love being creative and truly enjoy the work I do.

I started teaching myself HTML and CSS in 2009 and then attended WGU University to pursue a degree in Computer Science and further my skills. I later began contracting design and development work for small businesses which gave me the idea to start my own design boutique, so I started Wilburn Creative. My mission is to provide a great web experience with results you can trust.

I'm also a husband, father, singer/songwriter, and enjoy traveling and having fun with my family and friends. I'm also a die hard Chicago Bulls and Bears fan.

I leave all the photography to my wife, she's really great.

  • Gemma & Jet

    This is an independent fashion designer marketplace I built using Ruby on Rails, Stripe, and some other very cool gems. I designed the UI, front end, and back end myself. This was one of the coolest and most fun projects I've done so far. The client is planning to launch in 2016.

    Gemma & Jet is coming soon

  • Stax Cafe

    Stax Cafe is a great restaurant located in Chicago on Taylor Street. I met the owner a few years a go and we sat down and built the website together and it was a great experience. They have re-branding plans next year so we may be building something else very soon.
