To make it relatively brief, I started off at The Sun newspaper way back in 2000.
I worked across the print aspect of the paper and as a kid did surprisingly well. I started as a Graphic Designer and became the Deputy Head of Design at the age of 25 working across both the print and digital side of the business. I worked there for a number of years until 2012 when I left.
After that I became a UX&D consultant at The FA, overhauling their digital offerings in a very successful project.
From there I moved to Northern & Shell, as the Digital Art Director in charge of all their brands including Channel 5, OK! Magazine, Daily Star, Daily Express, Health Lottery and New and Star Magazines. After a couple of years at N&S I took a job as the Creative Lead for an digital agency based in Hove, Brighton. I was in charge of running the UX and UI team across a number of new Digital products, apps and cross-platform responsive sites.
In the summer of 2016 I took a contract as a Senior UI Lead for Camelot Global. Working on a €7m project to overhaul and redesign the Swiss National Lottery website and App consisting of Swiss Lotto, EuroMillions, Instant Win Games, Sports Betting and Horse racing. The project was hugely successful and Co-Managing a team of 15 designers across three time zones was testing to say the least. My 6-month contract was extended and was there for 20 months in total.
I have many years of experience working on iOS and Android apps, mobile-first & responsive sites. I can Rapid Prototype, create low-High Fidelity wireframes, Interactive prototyping all the weay through to creating pixel perfect User Interfaces. The tools of my trade are: the whole Adobe suite, Sketch, InVision, Zeplin, Omnigraffle, Marvel, Balsamiq, UX Pin, Slack, Jira, Trello and hangouts….
I have solid experience working within various frameworks including Agile, Lean & waterfall methodologies. I’m a huge fan of collaboration and communication to make workflow and projects successful. I’m a UX/UI Hybrid with a strong focus on Visual Design and interaction.
