  • Schroders - Investing in people
    Schroders - Investing in peopleSchroders is a British multinational asset management company with its headquarters based in London and several offices around the globe. Working with a large digital agency I was tasked to design the online annual report for the company. I used the brand statue images across the site, some large and some small and some as faded background images with colour washes on top of them. Having these elements visible across different areas of the site strengthened the brand look and feel.

    Senior Visual DesignerAviva
     - London, United KingdomFreelance
    Working within a large, collaborative team of VD, UX, Researchers and Product Owners. Projects I worked on included large multilingual responsive websites, email design and print work. Aviva’s design system is made up of a large framework of components and style guide, which are used to build new webpages and new components. There was a great deal of interaction between teams which took place over Skype calls, work sharing and sometimes travelling to Norwich for meetings. I worked across Aviva and partner brands including, HSBC, TSB, Santander and Barclays. Digital work was typically carried out in Sketch with prototypes produced in Invision - these would be presented and talked through by myself and a UX designer with clients and stakeholders. Signed off designs and assets were provided to developers on Zeplin. All print work I produced, including large posters and exhibition banners, were carried out in Photoshop and Indesign.

    Senior Visual DesignerSapientRazorfish
     - London, United KingdomFreelance
    Worked as a Visual Designer on the NatWest and RBS account based at both the agency and client offices. Operating in a fully agile process I worked in close collaboration within a team of UX and Visual designers creating solutions for new page layouts and page components for the main banking website. The website is a very large, content-driven site and each new section was created in 2 - 6 week design sprints. Due to the agile process, there was a great deal of interaction between client Journey Managers, UX and Design teams to allow for consistent review, fast turnaround and rapid prototyping of concept work. Design projects included icon design, style guide creation and photography sourcing across both NatWest and RBS brands. I also worked on the native Android RBS app design including discovery concepts, screen layouts, user journeys and prototyping work for client presentations. All work was carried out using Sketch, Invision and handed over to developers on Zeplin.
