A passionate designer with a love of typography, grid systems, hand drawn textures, black ink, clean interfaces and using design to solve problems and make things better. You can contact me here.
I started my career in web design back in 1999, when Flash was the coolest thing around and we all partied like Prince predicted. My first project was a website for a Sony product, which as first projects go was not too bad a start.
I worked as an online designer, creating websites, online banners, emails and CD-ROMs (yes, they were a thing) for some of the UK's largest clients. However, I grew frustrated at the lack of control that HTML afforded at the time, and discovered the wonderful world of print and David Carson.
I continued to mix print and web design, mostly freelancing for agencies and building up my own client base, before taking Senior Design roles within the financial sector, where I was able to influence and shape the direction of design.
Most recently I was Lead Designer at Aberdeen Standard Investments in Edinburgh, implementing designs for the new global reporting model alongside third party developers.
I've since rediscovered my passion for digital and currently concentrating on UI/UX work now that code has caught up with concept and the user is back at the heart of the digital world.
