I'm a service designer, product designer, and no-code developer. I'm passionate about using my skills to help organisations solve problems and achieve their goals. Over the years, I've had the opportunity to work with a variety of startups, from those in their early stages to those that are more established. I mentor junior designers over the weekends.
Most recently, I led product design at Smarter.Codes, an AI-focused multi product startup. Managed the design function for portfolio products and consulting projects like Knowing.dev, Hybrid.Chat and Objective.Earth.
My curiosity pushes me to continually explore, adapt, and grow, both as a designer and as an individual. Here's a peek into what I'm currently diving into:
- Accessibility and Inclusive Design: I believe in design that transcends boundaries. That's why I'm exploring accessibility guidelines and best practices, creating visually appealing designs that are accessible to all. I'm broadening my understanding of creating products and services that embrace diversity and inclusivity.
- Design Ethics: The growing concerns around digital privacy and manipulative design have emphasised the importance of ethical considerations. I'm reading "Design Ethics" by Mike Monteiro, a book that explores the moral implications of our design decisions.
- Interaction Design: To craft captivating user experiences, I'm delving into interaction design. Through practicing with new tools and software, I'm incorporating dynamic and responsive elements into my designs.
- Design Leadership: As I aim to advance in my career, I'm honing my leadership skills. Attending workshops and webinars on design management, I'm learning effective ways to lead creative teams and foster a collaborative and innovative work environment.
- AI and Machine Learning in Design: With artificial intelligence and machine learning transforming technology, understanding their impact on design is essential. I'm exploring how these emerging technologies can enhance user experiences, personalise interfaces, and streamline design processes.
