A bit about me:
I am a dynamic and creative UX designer with experience of working on international brands, working in a fast paced collaborative environment. As a hands on individual who isn’t afraid of a pen and paper I work through the full UX lifecycle from research to design and testing utilising all elements of a user centred design process to create innovative cross platform experiences.
I enjoy learning new skills as well as playing an active part in the design community and have recently delivered a talk for Northern User Experience outlining the benefits of the Foog Behavioural Model in persuasion design.
