About me

Hi, I'm Sab. I'm a Senior UX/UI Designer based in London with over 7 years experience. I weirdly enjoy tight deadlines, chicken katsu (not so weird) and being the glue in between multiple departments to make sure all executions are linked up consistently...because no one wants to see a long-copy ad thrown on to a header image.
