Designer &
Digital Consultant

A seasoned designer (25 years) of the problem-solving kind, I have an eye for clean aesthetics and good detail. I work mostly in visual design for marketing and brand communications.

In my digital consulting work, I help clients with new tools and data workflows. I still call it designing, it just uses more of a systems and product mindset. I love tech products and the people in the community, from startups to solo makers and entrepreneurs.

More about me

I enjoy getting involved in wide variety of areas throughout the marketing process for my clients – both creative and technical. This can mean anything from project planning and research, generating concepts, design detailing, to technical integrations and automated processes.

Career history

I started out in the mid-90s designing and developing brands and marketing communications at big name agencies in London, including The Team, Lambie-Nairn, Brand Union and Turnbull Ripley. You can read more about this part of my career on my LinkedIn profile.

Between 2009 and 2014 I was frequently contracted for Carphone Warehouse. This involved design leadership (incl. UI & UX) on their My Hub web and mobile apps, including a number of trips to California to oversee implementation. I also lead the redesign of the Geek Squad UK website, and provided UX and design planning for a mobile insurance product.

Design for no-code founders & makers

Find it hard to cover the basics of good design when building products with no-code tools? I’m working on something to help.

Most likely it will start as a newsletter, but it could be many things. What I do know is it will consist of simple design tips to elevate your work.
