What I do
I work together with clients and (agile) development teams to create the best possible digital experiences for their users.
Mobile & web UX
Understanding users and translating insights into exceptional digital products and services.
Creating interactive front-end models to help explore and validate design approaches.
Wireframing & specification
Communicating design solutions through clear schematics and detailed functional descriptions.
Designing clean, clear user-interfaces, design systems and meaningful animations that enhance the UX.
My portfolio embraces web, mobile apps and visual UI design. To respect client privacy, the following is only a selection of projects. I would be delighted to meet in person and present a wider selection of recent work.
I have mastered several tools that play a role in defining and communicating the user-experience. Based on the project and team, I am able to adapt my process and choose the best tools for the job.
I have extensive experience using Figma for user-interface design and setting up and maintaining design systems.
As an early adopter of Sketch I have used it extensively on a range of projects from mobile apps to complete design systems.
I am familiar with many prototyping tools, and Axure has a nice balance of power and speed which are essential for getting early feedback on designs.
HTML & CSS
An understanding of modern front-end helps me create feasible designs and collaborate with developers. I will often code specific behaviours such as responsive scaling.
