I offer hands-on digital product design – including UX design, information architecture, interaction design, visual design, motion design, and prototyping – to select clients. I design for all major platforms, including iOS, Android, and web, and am proficient with modern digital design tools such as Sketch and Framer.
I specialise in projects with an ethical component, and work relating to privacy and user safety. To this end, I’m currently studying towards Certified Information Privacy Technologist status. I’m particularly excited by projects that involve emerging technology – such as AI, wearables, conversational and voice/sound interfaces – and the sport industry.
I’m happy to work with teams anywhere in the world, either on-site (subject to visas/work permits) or remotely. I prefer short-term engagements of up to six weeks at a time.
I’m fortunate enough to have a global reputation in my field, and my sixteen years of experience makes me a senior member of the UK community. I’ve worked with a wide range of companies including:
I’m particularly strong in Agile environments and when collaborating with skilled product and engineering leaders. I have deep experience of remote/distributed design teams, and have developed fine communication skills through my public speaking and writing.
Why not me?
I’ve also been around long enough to know what doesn’t suit.
I only accept projects that interest me and align with my ethical principles. I will not work in the military, gambling, adult, or cryptocurrency sectors. As a product designer, I favour app projects over content-driven website work. Experience has also taught me that early-stage startups tend not to be a good fit.
I know the methods and value of user research well, but I’m not a specialist researcher. I’ll be happy to help you kickstart a research programme, but I’m not the right person to run that research long-term.
My experience and reputation also mean I’m more expensive than my peers. If your project doesn’t need my level of seniority, I may be able to connect you with someone who will do an excellent job cheaper than I can. However, if you need a highly senior, versatile, and reliable designer able to hit aggressive goals with little supervision, I might be a good fit.
