Currently Leading the Design of New Weather App for the Met Office in Exeter. Also working on an exciting mental health start-up, as well as providing design consultancy services to a number of other projects.
Talented design generalist from a storytelling background with a long history in content, technology, communications & media with some of the biggest brands in the world. I now specialise in human-centred experience design, consulting and project work for government.
I am a design thinking practitioner and craft product designer, with previous specialisms in TV, digital film, semantic metadata, and narrative modelling. I have a passion for quality and attention to detail, and will fight to make outcomes I am involved in greater than the sum of their parts.
I started my career in the arts before moving into page layout & graphic design, then moved into film, video and multimedia. My twenties were an exciting combination of directing pop videos and making high-end corporate productions including the launch of the Playstation, an award winning Windows 95 launch campaign, and Formula One. Pioneering a concept called Condensed TV, I began a technology startup called Frameline which looked to deliver a semantic database driven interactive content platform. Working with clients such as Paramount Pictures, Freemantle Media, Oxford Scientific Film, Harvard University & the US Libraries of Congress, I created a time-based semantic annotation structure for video logging and archive, the first commercial MPEG7 product.
