Full-stack Digital Product Designer with 15+ years of experience
RETAIL • FINANCE/FINTECH • E-COMMERCE • USER EXPERIENCE DESIGN • USER INTERFACE DESIGN • USER RESEARCH • PROTOTYPING • LATEST TOOLS AND METHODS • NATIVE MOBILE APPS
Based in London, I am specialised in making complex products simple and beautiful for both startups and global companies in various sectors and markets.
As a hybrid designer I am well-versed in digital best practices, user research/user based design, user experience design and brand strategy to stay competitive. I am capable of seeing the high-level vision and big picture (business goals + what customers want) while also being able to roll up my sleeves and dive into design details.
Most recently I worked for HSBC as Digital Product UX and Design Manager creating multiple native iOS mobile and web apps, including one of the leading global HSBC product. Previously worked for a couple of UK and European banks, financial software companies and Fintech startups like Origin, IndexInvestor, Lombard Risk, GE Money, Liberty Global, Unicredit and Vodafone.
