Vancouver, BC (November 7, 2011) – The Digi Awards have recognized Jostle Corporation as one of the top three digital design teams in Canada, alongside Jet Cooper and Jam3. Jostle is a finalist in the 2011 edition of the awards under the category “Canada’s Top Digital Design Team” that targets teams that “effectively combined usability with a strong visual aesthetic to help users navigate their digital experience” and “worked together to evolve the standards of design in the digital medium”.
“It's wonderful to see recognition for the importance of bringing intuitive usability and elegance to enterprise software. Jostle is pushing hard to set a new standard with its people-centric Jostle® organizational platform,” commented Brad Palmer, Jostle CEO and Co-Founder.
The Jostle design team brings together the three sets of domain expertise – user experience design, coding innovation and enterprise leadership – that are essential to achieve elegance, speed and ease of use. Dave Humphrey, Director of User Experience + Design at Jostle commented, "We are thrilled to have been nominated for such a prestigious award. The team has worked hard to deliver a level of design integration and intuitive usability that engages people in a way intranets never could, so this recognition is much appreciated."

He has also been an e-learning Interaction Designer where he produced interactive multimedia apps for various businesses and Fortune 100 companies, including KPMG and Microsoft.
