     - London, United KingdomFull Time
    Designing user experience and user interaction, primarily in the cultural sector. Working with global museums, archives, galleries and arts venues, I've had the opportunity to lead art direction, digital branding and user interaction for organisations across the world. I've lead direction for the User Experience, including: Information Architecture, Site-mapping, Wireframing, Usability Testing, Accessibility Testing. I've created specification documentation for developers to follow, interacted with them to decide best practices, and conducted both FE & BE functionality testing. I have worked as an individual and as part of a team. For a 6 month interval, I was the sole designer at my previous studio. I have experience in updating pre-existing websites to maintain consistency, I also have experience in creating new digital branding and art direction.
