About me

I am a multidisciplinary designer with a main focus on user experience and graphic design. I have a background in book and editorial design that strongly informs the way I design for web and mobile. I work at the intersection of user research, product design and visual design. I have worked with multiple early stage start ups translating ideas from vague concepts into fully functioning and successful digital products. It's important to me that I work on projects that solve a problem and have a positive impact. That's why I started my own community focused on sustainable living called And The Future?.

    Education

    Currently

    Sep 2016
    • London, United Kingdom
    • After having studied Design for Graphic Communication at LCC, London - a course with a strong focus on Design Thinking and Human-Centred Design - I had a good understanding of User Experience Design and how to develop user focused products. But having worked in this field for over a year now most of my knowledge surrounding this topic was self taught. To fill in the gaps and get an even better understanding I have started the UX part time course at General Assembly to strengthen my skills even more.
