About me
Initially, my interest in psychology and design led me to creative advertising where I learned to use strategic thinking to resolve user problems. Now, I want to shift my creativity from interrupting people’s experiences and use UX to enhance them, focusing on life-easing, human-centred design.

  • Untangle Native App Launch
    Untangle Native App LaunchUntangle is a grief support startup with the aim to help people find the emotional, practical and expert tools to help build a life beyond loss. Launched in August 2020, the Untangle app aims to connect users with others who can relate via in-app support chats. The app tackles the emotional side of loss by creating a peer support app. When the user’s sign up, they answer a series of questions that Untangle use to help match them into a group of people who understand them.

  • Adidas : New Blood Graphite Pencil Winner
    Adidas : New Blood Graphite Pencil WinnerYoung people need role models; they are a vital part of inspiring success. However, there aren’t enough role models in women’s sports. Not because they don’t exist, but because they’ve been neglected by the media. With hundreds of newsworthy stories from sportswomen failing to make the headlines, how are young girls going to get the motivation they need to participate in sports? Adidas will stand against media gender bias by using London buses to share the unheard stories from the previous year.
  • Untangle X Sasha Bates Infographics
    Untangle X Sasha Bates InfographicsI was given the task to create a content strategy to promote Untangle’s online grief support service via Instagram. I wanted to create content that didn’t just relate to those who are grieving but spread to the wider audience of family/friends of the ones grieving as well. The idea I came up with was for Untangle to share a mixture of practical and emotional advice on how to support a friend when they lose a loved one. I constructed a collaboration between Lauren Doughty (Untangle’s In-House Ill

    London, United KingdomInternship
    I work within a small team of designers and developers to prepare the Untangle app for its launch in May 2020. It is my first experience of working for a tech company with a social benefit. I work in tandem with the senior designer, taking insights and first-hand stories about grief from the company research before implementing them into the UX and visual design of the product. I also work on developing design solutions for the app beyond its launch, coming up with long term design solutions to boost the product’s capability in the future.

    Knowledge Officer | Client Project | 3-week group project My team was tasked with improving the design for ‘Skills Insight’, Knowledge Officer’s new product that uses AI to analyse the user’s LinkedIn profile and provide them with a free skills report to help them understand their skills gap. I managed the team end-to-end, leading the discussion as to what steps within the UX process we should take and which user problems to focus on to improve the product. I also played a crucial part in making design decisions, from my initial rough sketches to then testing and iterating up to high-fidelity. For more details, click here: https://tinyurl.com/wfoypm7 Icelandair app | Conceptual | 2-week group project My team and I were asked to create a new feature within Icelandair’s existing app, making their (currently manual) in-flight services available to passengers on their mobile devices. I played a fundamental role in the discovery phase, putting together a competitor analysis and carrying out user interviews. I consolidated the team’s findings with an affinity map that defined the user problems and the in-flight services we’d put into the app. This led to me sketching and developing the initial paper-prototype and facilitating design decisions from user testing.

During the project, I developed my UI skills on Sketch: creating a style guide, mood board and learning the fundamentals of accessibility and colour.
