I love all things digital and have been fortunate to work with some great brands. If you like what I do and need help with online design and UX then please get in touch.
I am currently working on the new fully responsive website for The Mirror. Working closely alongside the head of UX and Design in our respective “agile” working teams made up of onshore/offshore developers, testers and product managers. I am responsible for creating innovative, pixel-perfect user interface designs and visual designs across the following 4 break points:
– Tablet Landscape
– Tablet Portrait
Producing high visual HTML prototypes, whilst problem solving complex layouts for wide variation of content and presenting designs and selling solutions to various stakeholders across the business.
At HSBC I took on the challenge of redesigning their current ATM UI, with an exciting brief which included the words “blue sky thinking” I was intrigued at the prospect of the unlimited possibilities and the direction I could take this in. Immediately I wanted to move away from the traditional “8 button small screen” to a personalised, fully touch screen experience that could interact with your mobile device or wearables allowing users to quickly select the amount of money to withdraw, which would dispense without the need for any debit, credit card or PIN number. The concepts designed were very well received by senior stakeholders and are now in development.
I was employed by Feref to work on a mobile design for the new upcoming “Chipmunks” movie. I was tasked with creating and amending some visual designs. Fox Movies (the client) requested all content to be above the fold for maximum user interaction. The mobile website acted as an interactive ‘sing-a-long’ game where users could sing along to a chosen track with the voice speeded up, they could also create the own album cover artwork by uploading there own ‘selfie’.
As part of the continuous improvement and Web Design teams at JL’s head office in London Victoria, my role involves collaborating with fellow UX designers and business analysts to define and implement quick and effective improvements to the Johnlewis.com storefront.
Working in an agile environment, with onshore and offshore team members and a monthly release cycle, day-to-day tasks include visual design mock ups across desktop and mobile devices; front-end mark up, testing and QA; and further iterations based on live statistics and site monitoring.
I was employed as a freelancer by Ignite Marketing to design a number of display ads, animated gifs, and landing pages for clients such as D&D London and Whitbread PLC.
I worked as part of the Creative Studio, reporting to the Creative Studio Manager.
I was responsible for all digital creative and was instrumental in helping to deliver a new and improved website via a third party agency, i was also responsible for web content, email, landing pages, and display ads.
During this role I managed two mid-weight designers.
