I’m Jamie, a UI/UX designer living in Manchester.
I create beautifully crafted interfaces based on strong UX principles. I specialise in breaking down complex problems to create simple user focused solutions. Whether the product is an app, responsive website or bespoke software, I always use the same approach.
Innovate. Prototype. Test. Reflect. Iterate.
I have experience creating solutions for a large range of clients. Including brands such as Microsoft, Flybe, Thomas Cook Airlines and Monarch Airlines but also with FinTech companies and smaller startups.
A lot of my most recent work is based on large, data-heavy, account management platforms.
I explore the brand, analyze the competitive landscape and take a deep dive into analytics to better understand the overall challenge of the project.
I ask stakeholders and users questions that over the course of a conversation reveal their key motivations, behaviors, pain points and goals.
I analyze the insights from all my research to discover overall trends and actionable intelligence to identify and validate the problem to solve.
Based on the synthesis of my research and results, I diagram solutions, including global navigation, sitemaps and user flows, for various platforms.
With planning complete, I do quick sketches of the design, evolving it with each new iteration. I use Sketch and InVision to wireframe and prototype.
I test my designs with users. From studying their behaviors and what they tell me, I continue to improve the experience through the iterative process.
I really like to search for the right tools and use them to do or communicate what it’s needed. I believe that every task has it’s own tool to make it right, being it as simple as a pencil or complex as a programming framework. It’s our duty as problem solvers to find what fits best.
During my career, I’ve used lots of tools to prototype, code or conceptualize an idea.
