        • Neyber is a FinTech startup based in London. I worked with a team including UX and UI designers, product strategists, junior designers and a creative director, on a family of products focusing on personal finance. Working closely with stakeholders, developers and other staff across the company including the marketing team, financial analysts and customer-facing staff, I gathered requirements and knowledge from across different departments and used wireframing and prototypes to test ideas and develop product concepts. Working Agile in a fast-moving environment, I designed user flows, interfaces and interactive tools, conducted user testing sessions and ran retrospectives to continuously improve products and quickly roll out new solutions. Neyber has now launched its low-cost loans product and to date has funded over £40million in loans.

        • Full Time
        • I started Pumkin in 2005 to service the growing number of photographers and other visual artists who needed an online platform to showcase their work. The business grew quickly and the initial client base of artists soon expanded to include hotels, media publications, recording artists, design studios and charities. Whilst working at Pumkin I learned to code in HTML, CSS and JavaScript, later in PHP for back-end systems, and sometimes worked in a developer role on projects with other designers. At different times I have led digital projects from aspects including interface design, user experience design, brand development, user research and system architecture. As a founder I was also responsible for winning new commissions and shipping products. I also built teams and made hires for specific expertise on certain projects, frequently collaborating with other design studios, including MadeThought, No Days Off and Realise Creative. To date whilst working at Pumkin I have delivered websites and digital applications for Airbnb, Red Bull, Sony Music, Dartmouth College, the Royal Philharmonic Society, The Korean Cultural Centre, the AOP and The Landmark Hotel among many others.
