About me
I collaborate with creative teams, technologists and entrepreneurs to dream up new ideas in digital. I’m interested in human psychology and creating emotive sensory experiences that blur the line between physical and digital. Curious and interested in people, anything and everything with a knack for spotting opportunities and making connections. Currently a resident at Fusebox Brighton (a hub for digital innovators, tech visionaries and creative technologists) prototyping interactive and immersive experiences with VR, AR and IOT. See link to blog below: I also write stories and make comics in my spare time. Ideation • Idea generation • Exploring possibilities of new platforms and technologies • Spotting challenges and opportunities in stories from research • Making new connections with existing themes and concepts • Surfacing opportunities for engagement around the edges of the experience • Visual storytelling through sketching and storyboarding Strategy • Roadmap strategy and prioritisation • Strategy and tactics for user research and testing UX and Design • Solving sticky design challenges • Lean design for digital products. Prototypes, PoCs and MVPs: focusing in and designing only the most important things to test an idea. • Personas and empathy maps with rich insights to inspire the design • Experience and journey mapping to uncover challenges and opportunities • User flows to describe the specific task and interactions • Creating and augmenting design systems • A bit of in-app copy
