Hello, my name is Shinji Pons. I am a visual designer who was born in Japan but grew up in France, who currently lives in London. I graduated with a First Class Honours BA in Graphic & Media Design from the London College of Communication in 2012. I rely heavily on user-centered design principles to produce high-quality visuals across many platforms, using the latest software and techniques to build assets as efficiently as possible.Locked Pro Plan feature
Alongside user experience developers and researchers, I work on Thomson Reuters future products that rely on the latest innovations in technology (natural language processing, machine learning) to provide customers with more efficient and more reliable ways to conduct their business such as, but not limited to: • enhanced due diligence (false positive error detection) • contextual risk extraction in media articles Some of the products I worked on: • TRKD API: request accurate real-time data (headlines, images, market pricing, etc) from one of the world's most trusted sources • Convene for iOS: live events and conference app
During my short time at American Express, I was assigned to the user experience and user interface design for American Express’ knowledge management software for customer service worldwide.
Inside the Brand Experience Design team, I designed, prototyped and developed digital experiences to increase consumer engagement of Microsoft’s first-party devices (Windows Phone, Xbox, Surface and Kinect) with third parties.
I worked as a freelancer on a project of international ambition with a team of designers, developers and marketing managers. On top of the branding, I worked on a number of aspects like interaction design, prototyping and web development.
While on placement with Jonathan Barnbrook, I had the opportunity to work for clients like Art Basel, the Cambridge Satchel Company, BT, St. Petersburg Biennale of Museum Design and David Bowie.
While at this design studio located in the Granary Hall of Central Saint Martins, I worked on briefs for the likes of Ipsos, Universal McCann and Grey Goose.
During my placement at the agency once famously known as Total Design, I mainly worked on the research and conceptual phase for the new corporate typeface for LG.
I was extremely fortunate to have worked alongside Philippe Apeloig on the design of the wayfinding system, museography and the pictograms for the Louvre Abu Dhabi museum.
