10 years

In the last 10 years, I have continued to work in the digital and creative industry. In that time I have been able to learn a few things in all manner of industry expertise and skills. Either form doing it myself or learning from others.

I have been fortunate to have been mentored by a number of industry greats and even shape my own experience in managing and nurturing my own design team.

On a number of occasions, I have been asked to stand up and talk on various subjects as a guest speaker and produce features for publishers.

Subjects

  • UI Design

  • Design tools and processes

  • Creative workshops and problem solving

  • Accessibility in design

  • Visual language and communication

I have written
