About me

I am a London based product designer, specialised in UX/UI Design. I have 2 years of freelance UX/UI experience working in various fields (from Market Research to Fintech and E-Commerce) and 4 years working experience in classic Graphic Design (mainly Editorial and Branding). I initially studied Graphic Design but after freelancing at IDEO and attending the User Experience course at General Assembly I discovered my passion for user-centred design. My background in editorial and book design equipped me with a keen eye for detail, narrative and typography. That makes me a users rights advocate with a strong penchant for ligatures I guess! I happened to only have start up clients in my first 2 years of UX/UI work and discovered that I thrive in fast paced, agile environments in which you might have to wear a different 'hat' every day, depending on the team. For me it's the most exciting environment to work in.

Education

Currently

Sep 2016
  • London, UK
  • 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.
