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. 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) 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.
