Over the past decade I have worked as a designer for well known household names such as; Tesco, John Lewis, HSBC, Reach (Previously Trinity Mirror), Simply Business, David Lloyd Leisure and Ocado.
Don't just take my word for it...here are just a few comments made by colleagues past and present.
Like having the customer on the team. James is an excellent customer focussed product designer, not just in his exceptional design skills but also making sure everything does right by the customer. James gets under the skin of the problem and becomes a true customer ambassador. For me its a pleasure to feel full confidence and trust in what James designs and that it will be of a true benefit at world class quality.
James is one of the best UI/UX designers I have worked with. I worked with James for more than a year at Tesco. Although James was responsible for creating UI designs, he had a solid understanding of customer experience principles as well. I was impressed by the speed at which James created designs, which allowed the team to do multiple design iterations quickly and look at a problem from different angles. James was not afraid of speaking his mind, and helped team understand the design nuances through constructive dialogue. He is a great team player, and was always available to the team to resolve any design related issues. I strongly recommend James to any company looking for a UX/UI designer.
James is customer focused, resourceful and inventive. James is happy to discuss and debate his work with Product and Engineering, understanding Technical and Customer considerations and adapting accordingly. Working in my team, he consistently pushed us to consider alternatives and new ideas.
I worked with James at Trinity Mirror for around 6 months. During this time he quickly proved that he is a very strong Senior Designer with both UI and UX skills. He was easy to manage and I could trust him to consistently make good decisions when designing. He has excellent communication skills had no problem presenting designs to various stakeholders around the business. James’ personality would be a good fit for any team and I strongly recommend him for Senior Design level UI and UX positions.
