My design process is not rigid, it shifts and adjusts to each individual project and it's requirements. Research, sketching, wireframing, prototyping, testing, visual design, and coding will usually be involved. Not necessarily all those stages, or in that order, but what works best and most efficiently for any given task.
Comprehensive experience and knowledge of digital design gained through working at multiple large design agencies and major corporations. Extensive experience developing design languages and style guides. Consistent integration of user-centered methodologies that start and end with the goal of immersive human interaction. An advocate of best practice approaches to design and code. Equally technically adept and highly creative. Cross browser/cross platform considerations built in to all my work. A genuine team player who enjoys knowledge sharing an peer-to-peer interaction and collaboration.
I've worked at some of Brighton & Hoves (and Dublins) leading design agencies and large companies on an extraordinarily rich and diverse array of projects over the last 20 years. Always keen to use new technologies and design practices, I've designed work for pretty much every format that's out there. The amount I've learnt form the top creative and technical people along the way is immeasurable. It's this depth of experience that makes me the creative professional I am today.
Thank you for taking an interest in my work. I have plenty of design files I can send over to you if you'd like to see exactly what I've been up to recently. Contact me using the details below and I'll be happy to send over the Zip file.
