Selected Work

A lot of my work, especially in the finance sector, is commercially sensitive and subject to strict confidentiality agreements. Publishing such work here could harm the fortunes of the clients that I’ve been fortunate enough to work with, so I’ve chosen a small selection of publicly published work to demonstrate my skills and experience.

I’ve worked in dynamic, demanding agency and client-side environments both as a hybrid UX/UI designer and as a dedicated UX or UI specialist as required.

Summary

User Experience Design is a highly multi-disciplinary field and I have proven to be highly-skilled across most of its sub-disciplines in dynamic, demanding agency and client-side environments.

I’m a problem solver by nature and most enjoy and excel at User-Interface, Interaction Design and Rapid Prototyping.

My design principles

Every set of users and every problem is different but I believe it’s vital to have a rock solid foundation from which to start and constantly revisit throughout a project or programme to keep yourself and others on track.

The user is king

The user is the beginning and the end of everything we do throughout a project – so it’s imperative that their needs are centre to everything we do.

KISS: Keep it simple, stupid

I first heard this whilst watching The Bush Tucker Man on TV during the school holidays and it’s stuck with me ever since. I believe that Less Is More and take great pleasure in finding simple, elegant solutions to problems.

God is in the details

Another Mies term but the sum of many small improvements can make the difference between a good experience and a great experience.

Try, learn and try again

The freedom to experiment is what makes this job so special, and no two solutions are ever the same. I always look at different ways of achieving objectives as well as the more obvious routes.

What my last client had to say about me

“Stu is a great UI designer and has got a really good eye for UX as well, which makes him an awesome addition to any design team. Not only that, he makes going to work an enjoyable task as he’s fun and easygoing. Can’t wait to work with him again.”
