Freelance UX Consultant & Designer

I shape products and experiences.

Working alongside brands and people, I uncover problems and solve them. I design with functionality, growth, and simplicity in mind.

Helping projects move forward with user experience design, branding and visual design, and multimedia production.

Personal design principles

1. Everyone is a designer
Running collaborative workshops early in projects leverages internal / external expertise, and creates a more streamlined process.

2. Share early. Share often.
Using sketches and low-fidelity mockups allow ideas to be iterated quicker, meaning products and projects stay on track from day one.

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

4. Invest in understanding
A fundamental understanding of the problem dictates a clear direction-- less time in software, and more time gathering / analysing information.

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

The day-to-day

 

Let’s build something great together

Visual designer turned product (user experience) designer; I have a digital marketing background with a focus on Integrated Marketing Campaigns. I create things that live both on and offline.

I’m always looking for opportunities to weave strategic content with clean systems and simple interfaces-- approaching each design challenge with process-driven creativity. My ideal projects are rooted in UX strategy, developing branding frameworks + design languages, and teaching.

I believe in the power of design, and helping good people who’re making great things. Success isn’t avoiding failure, it’s overcoming it. I firmly believe that.

Everyone should know everyone.
