About me
I’m Elysa, a user experience designer and project manager based in London. I have helped agencies, start-ups and larger companies delivering end-to-end web products. I’m passionate about making tech easier to build. I also focus on giving effortless, engaging and enjoyable experience for people. I have been trained as a developer so I have a good understanding of front-end ( HTML, CSS and Javascript)& back-end. I work both with agencies and directly with companies & startups for Arts and performing arts, Hospitality, E-commerce, Fintech & Edtech. Past clients& projects include : BBC, West-end musicals and theatres (as Ian McKellen, Six the musical, Marry Poppins, Hamilton, Les Miserables, Life of Pi and many others), EAT17. While working with startups, I worked along with Aviva to develop the MVP of a new fintech product.
