What I provide

Below are some of the services that I can offer. I collabrate User Experience (UX) Specialists and other Digital Designers and Digital Developers to create positive user experiences in all my projects.

User Experience

User Experience

I can help you improve experiences with your products and services by understanding your customers, by identifying issues with your user experience (UX) through research and testing. Through a well thought out strategy I can identify quick wins and priority areas to develop. I can then work with you to solve these issues by optimising existing user journeys by providing design services and redevelopment of existing functionality.

Web Design

Web Design

From wireframes where I look more closely at the elements that a user will see on the screen itself – content, navigation, calls to action, interactive features etc. I develop page mock ups to further refine the website’s persona, look and feel whilst keeping a multi-screen approach in mind to ensure the designs translate well across all devices and screens.

Web Development

Web Development

The difference between a nice looking website and a great user experience is more often than not the subtle ways that a visitor moves about and interacts with a site. From when forms appear only when needed, buttons pulse or react at appropriate times, pages update without having to totally reload, subtle feedback is provided when the user clicks or submits a form. I help develop websites that are engaging and a joy to use.

Good design is obvious. Great design is transparent.
