I recently graduated with a 1st class honours in Interactive Media Design from Northumbria University where I was awarded, Best undergraduate student in the communication design subject area. Whilst exhibiting my final work at the 2016 London D&AD New Blood Exhibition 2016, mine and Becky Lee’s “Virgin Empire” project was awarded "One to Watch”.
My main focus in my work is upon user experience, with the aim to create an effortless experience for every user. I begin any project with extensive research to understand the exact requirements and competition. Using this to create personas, scenarios and customer journeys as well as content identification to plan system architectures to generate the most logical flow. I then undertake a process of wire-framing through conversation with peers, normally at a white board before creating some low fidelity mockups that can be tested in order to achieve the best user experience.
My various projects have given me the experience of designing for multiple platforms, in particular iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV. This has allowed me to have knowledge of the entire Apple ecosystem and use various additional features of Apple in many ideas.
With knowledge in web development, I have the ability to code in HTML, CSS and PHP. I am also able to work with Wordpress and Bootstrap. Web is something I have expanded my knowledge on in my spare time by creating a number of sites for clients, this giving me experience in customer service and working with live clientele.
