Lead UX Designer at ReutersLondon, United Kingdom
About me
I’m a product designer based in the UK. As a designer, I aim to create delight in everyday experiences. I specialise in user experience, visual communication and user interface design. I currently hold the role of Lead UX Designer at Reuters, working within the Product Team. I am responsible for improving the user experience of existing news products and delivering exciting innovations and features across the News platforms. I also lead the creative for Run For Heroes. We launched the fundraising campaign #Run5Donate5Nominate5 on Instagram which raised over £6.7 million for NHS Charities Together COVID-19 appeal. It became the most successful virtual fundraiser in the UK, and third globally. Previously, I was a freelance designer working on motion graphics for companies like McLaren & BT, digital product development for smaller business such as SH:24 & Fettle, as well as visual communication projects for Ocado & Paymentsense. I also worked on brand creation and development for not-for-profits like A Plate For London. I am experienced in a range of processes to engage people through presentation and information, iconography and visualisation techniques. People are always at the heart of my designs so I am constantly iterating based on user feedback and accessibility guidelines.
