Altapp may be new on the scene, but Jess and Bruce most certainly aren’t. Here’s a tiny selection of clients the duo have done work for, both together and separately.
Friends since the 90’s, Jess and Bruce have worked together on a TON of cool software, web, and design projects for over a decade. In 2014, they decided to join forces as a dynamic duo in a more official capacity, thus forming Altapp Design.
Jess is passionate about technical research and development. She holds a Bachelor of Engineering from the University of Victoria and has been working in R&D for a decade in diverse industries such as Aerospace, Sports Science, and Biomedical Research. For the last 5 years she has been on the engineering and software teams of a global leader in Avionics Systems, as well as working on numerous other projects. Her areas of expertise include Web and Mobile Software Development and she also has experience with Project Management and Corporate Technical Policy Development. Outside of the office, Jess is a DJ in East Vancouver where she lives with friends and her cat Feinberg.
Bruce has an extensive background in creative direction. Starting his freelance web and graphic design career in 2005, he quickly built an impressive portfolio working for large institutions such as NASA and MTV as well as many small local businesses and startups. In 2008 he co-founded Voleurz Design Limited, taking it from a small, garage-run apparel design operation to selling in over 100 stores in six countries. Along the way, he and his partners built relationships with companies like RedBull and Whistler/Blackcomb by producing short videos and apparel for them, and they have been recognized on an international level for their award-winning video work. Bruce is passionate about entrepreneurship, the outdoors, and technology.
