- Web Design & Build
I’m a product and web designer who codes. Based in Teesside, I have over 15 years of experience working in-house and remotely for brands, agencies, startups, and charities. During this time, I have led the design and creative direction of brands, products, teams, and design systems.
Originally from a background of traditional graphic design, I’ve always been a keen explorer and diligent student of the world of design, and have experience working across all brand touchpoints. I’m especially interested in how people interact with digital products, and like nothing more than making people feel at home when they use them. I care deeply about creating accessible, useful, and beautiful products that help people and make a difference.
