About me
Hi, I'm Josh. I'm a London based product designer. I’m a creative thinker that loves to solve problems with beautiful solutions. I'm fascinated by how things work and therefore, I enjoy working on projects end to end, from ideation to development. I have a 5-year background in analysis which elevates my ability to identify and understand problems and then concept designs to improve user experience and meet business objectives.
