As a User Experience Designer (UX) I can optimise the user journey so that complex tasks become a breeze. Also mapping the existing user journey can help key decision makers make informed decisions.

As a User Interface Designer (UI) I can design intuitive interfaces and utilise visual languages to enhance the users experience. I like to make interfaces fun to interact with and appealing, bringing in human elements where possible.

As a Service Designer I can categorise information and make complex data sets really easy to interact with. Having a good hierarchy of information can make everything more efficient.

As a Business Analyst I can run workshops and experiments to validate your core product or service. Implimenting a validation workflow can ensure no time is wasted developing solutions that are not measured and have high risk of failure.

As a Front End Developer I can build simple websites and working prototypes using html and CSS. I coded this website, it meets accessibility standards, has complete SEO code and is optimised to load fast on mobile devices.
