Updated May 2015.

I’m a designer with skills in visual and interaction design. Right now, i’m putting these to use for Mint Digital, where I lead the design team and help ourselves, and our clients, create and grow delightful digital products and services.

In the past year or so i’ve helped people invent their perfect bath, made a tiny prototype music player for Universal, and allowed the public to book celebrities for Channel 4. I also had fun launching my own product at Mint - Tube Socks.

I tend to work as part of small team alongside developers and product strategists: testing ideas early on, and making things quickly and crudely, or slowly and polished, as and when needed. I believe in learning through experimentation, striving for honesty and simplicity in design, and always trying to put your user first. I also think a sense of humour and perspective are essential at all times.

On the side, I run a blog called Nice Portfolio where I curate the best design portfolios on the web. I do lots of other stuff too, like most people. My Instagram or Exposure are good places to start finding out about that.

Unlike some people, I always like receiving emails.

Tesco Clubcard Tool
I assisted with user research and early proposition testing on a new Tesco Clubcard product. Later I contributed illustration and defined the visual style for a prototype product built over four days.

Nice Portfolio
A curated showcase of the best design portfolios on the web, hand picked by me. I felt a one-stop place for portfolio inspiration would be a useful resource for any designer thinking about how to present their work online.

The blog gained over 3000 followers in the first 3 months, and has since featured interviews with internationally renowed designers.

50 Shades of Drake
Everyone needs to make something stupid every once in a while. This greycsale colour picker for Drake fans was featured on Product Hunt and was quickly followed by 50 Shades of Dre, Jay, and Ye. It's since become my go-to place for picking the perfect shade.
