I am a passionate, multifaceted Product Designer with six years experience in UX and UI working with startups and small businesses to drive outcomes through design. I use agile values of flexibility, communication and collaboration to manage the design process; research, crafting user journeys, building beautiful, intuitive and functional user interfaces, and delivering high fidelity prototypes ready for testing and development. I draw on my diverse skill set in branding, motion design and art direction in my work as a UX Designer and can deliver brand guidelines and marketing campaigns for product or feature launches across physical and digital touchpoints.
I believe in Dieter Rams principles for good design, and that design enables people to live better. This belief inspires me to solve design problems and look at the bigger picture for solutions. I understand the need for user experiences to not just be useful and look good, but function beautifully for everyone, and I am driven to do this for each project I work on.
In my own time, I enjoy art, design and photography; being a TATE member and regularly visiting exhibitions of all styles allows me to bring a kaleidoscope of new ideas for visuals and interactions back into my work. I enjoy making and practical tasks, and recently completed a carpentry course to learn to build my own furniture. I like trying new recipes and cooking, playing touch rugby, gym, swimming, cycling, scuba diving and I love to experience different cultures and food when I travel.
