user experience design

A little backstory…

I’ve spent the majority of my career designing for the web. Seeing the change over the years from desktop only primarily using Photoshop or Illustrator, to ever expanding array of screens and tools like Figma now.

As a designer, I specialise in user experience more weighted towards user interface design. I like solving problems that are backed with research with the aim to create an experience that’s visually stunning and above all accessible.

No matter whether that’s a marketing or e-commerce website, services millions of customers use or creating features for SaaS products. It’s finding that balance between the user and business goals.
