Design principles

 

1. Everyone is a designer
Running collaborative workshops leverages internal / external expertise, creating a more streamlined process.

2. Share early. Share often.
Sketches and mockups allow for quicker iterates, meaning projects stay on track from day one.

3. Clean mind. Clean design.
Simple, bold, and easily understood. Every element needs researched justification to keep its place in a design.

4. Invest in understanding
Exploring the problem space creates a clear direction-- less time with software, and more time gathering / analysing information.

5. Process dictate tools
Tools and technology are secondary to critical thinking. Each process demands a different combination of skills to discover, build and deliver a solution.

 

Let’s build something great together

I create things that live both on and offline.

Day to day, I help develop product strategy, build team alignment, lead and deliver global design projects, and upskill those around me.

I help good people who’re making great things. Success isn’t avoiding failure, it’s overcoming it. I firmly believe that.

Everyone should know everyone.
