About me

After graduating in Product Design in 2015, I have worked in various roles developing my design and business skills. I made the switch to UX fully in 2019, gaining a Diploma in UX Design and haven't looked back since! I'm currently working for PlayerData as their Lead UI/UX Designer and thrive on problem solving and creating user-centred products for web and mobile.

I'm a huge football fan, I often play football and golf, and from time to time I enter myself into running events including the half marathon in Glasgow!

Process

I believe the process of UX/UI Design is so important in creating sustainable and practical end-to-end journeys. I have developed skills in all aspects of the design process to help me become a better designer, always focussing on the user.

Strategy & Direction

I combine the strategy of the business or client, customer & user needs, and my vision to form a direction for the experience I plan to deliver.

Research & Ideation

I use qualitative and quantitative insights to inform designs, create personas, build user journeys and define strategic business direction.

Design & Conception

I design wireframes, low and high-fidelity prototypes and complex interactions to develop practical, and sustainable experiences.

Development & Delivery

The project is not finished once the design is complete. I ensure to present and deliver to either the end client or a team of developers.
