UI/UX Designer - Creative Developer

Brighton


A little about me

For the last 7 years, I’ve discovered, designed and developed a variety of products, including mobile apps, websites and web platforms. I’ve worked with Saas companies, various businesses in the hospitality industry.


Creativity’s in my blood, and I started my professional life as a graphic designer before moving into web development and user experience design. Now working as a user experience (UI/UX) designer, I enjoy projects that include conducting user research to properly define the problems I’m solving for. I also enjoy transforming prototypes into themes using HTML, CSS and JS.


I communicate with ease. I have extensive experience explaining processes, justifying decisions, and coming up with alternative solutions. Dribbble, Web Designer News, InVision, and Nick Babich are some of my favourite sources for design.
