About



• INTRO
Hello, I’m Nick, an experienced product designer specialising in user experience, interface and visual design.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the world’s biggest brands as a creative director, design director, UX, UI and product designer. I’ve co-founded a startup that was incubated by Seedcamp, ran a creative/design events company and grew it globally, designed touch-table installations, websites, brands, apps, systems, facilitated workshops with clients and colleagues to help clients develop innovative solutions for digital products.

I am a generalist focused on craft, driven by purpose and quality. I have expertise in leading projects of all sizes, with a focus on product strategy, visual design, interaction design and user experience.

Every project is shaped by an open positive mindset shaped by the belief that I can add value to any business from startups to the world beaters. I aim to find a balance between simplicity, beauty, function and effectiveness in the work.

• TESTIMONIALS

Word of mouth



“Nick is fast, precise and extremely knowledgeable. He works with no fuss, no messing about and no time wasted. He took a brief and delivered on every task far faster than anticipated. We contracted Nick for an interaction design project, however he also delivered great motion and brand development work to deliver a more complete project. Highly, highly recommended.”

“Nick came in to work on a major UX Design project for us and turned it around quickly and to an incredibly high standard. I was not only impressed by his extensive knowledge of UX & great quality of work but also his work ethic and ability to work through large scale projects swiftly. I highly recommend working with Nick.”

Rob Lawrence
Executive Creative Director, Native Design

“I worked with Nick on a very rapid prototyping / demo project for a complex investment product UI to be used to showcase a new product to gain investors and customers. Nick was fantastic to work with - really flexible, confident, grasped the problem space immediately and produced a beautiful, very elegant UI that the client loved immediately. The company has since secured funding and is using our demo to continue to grow.”
