About me
Hello. I'm Darren, a London based Product Design Lead. User Experience & UI Design is my thing. I am a very experienced Product Designer, and have many years experience working in cross-functional teams, large and small. I’m passionate about designing and building with the everyday user in mind and I believe that a User Centred Design methodology is pivotal to getting results quickly, as well as being essential to rapidly build, test and learn in order to design well informed products. I enjoy the challenge of making accessible design that is usable for all. ‍ I also enjoy writing Swift and use Xcode to build native iOS apps, one of which; BrewTeaFul has been featured by Apple in the AppStore. ‍ Over the years I have been fortunate to work for some amazing clients. From UX and Design consultancy through to complete redesign projects.
