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?.

In collaboration with information design agency Signal Noise, I created an infographic which aims to provide the hard facts from all of these user un-friendly terms of services that we agree to every day. This infographic has been exhibited

The lessons are taught using SuperHi’s own code editor.

    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.
