A Design Leader with over 16 years experience building businesses, brands, & software.

My name is Jonah Bitautas and I currently lead the Design & Research functions at LogicGate as the Director of Design & Research.

Before this, I was the Director of Product Design at Draftbit, responsible for the product’s visual design and user experience, co-led the Product Team as Head of Design at Blackbox, and was the first Director of Product Design at Home Chef. And that’s just been the last 6 years…

In the years prior to working at tech-driven startups, I was an entrepreneur that started and successfully ran my own profitable Design and Development studio for 3+ years that was focused on digital marketing campaigns, user experience, and web applications for our clients and partners. Leading up to that, I wore many different hats over the years cutting my teeth at large advertising and marketing agencies around Chicago as an Art Director, Designer, and Developer, at various points. With this experience, I’ve developed my flavor of lean design process, from years of personal practice and application, that pairs well with agile software development.

Unrelated to my profession, I do creative side projects that I release under my platform, Par Avion Theory.
