Work history

Currently

UX Architect

The BIO Agency

Jan 2015
  • From January I was working on the redesign of the e-commerce site of a global electronics and tech client. This was a fully responsive site with web-applications, news, video and events content. As UX Architect on the project, my role was to liaise with the design and development teams, codesign with and present to senior client stakeholders and external development teams, brainstorm, run user testing sessions, gather user and business requirements, construct and maintain the site map, scamp and wireframe ideas, generate and evaluate prototypes, and assist, supervise and review junior members of the team.

2014

UX Researcher

Nature Publishing Group

Mar 2014 - Sep 2014
  • I ran the user research side of the design department, conducting contextual enquiries, workshops and establishing a program of test sessions and network of volunteers to evaluate designs and generate insights for further design iterations. I wrote reports for presentation to senior stakeholders, external design agencies and product teams as appropriate. I worked on around 10 digital products during this time: social media integration, collection presentation, search, email alerts, manuscript submission process, subject classifications, etc.

2014

Digital Design Intern

Makelight Interactive

Feb 2014 - Mar 2014
  • I completed a month-long internship at this exciting music related mobile-tech startup. I designed the web dashboard, iPhone app and promotional material (print, motion graphics) for this exciting startup for both their Makelight and Visual Voting products, while providing UX guidance and heuristic evaluations. I also created motion graphics shorts for presentation to Makelight’s clients on the consultancy side of their business.
