✔ Professional Front End Designer & Developer with 24+ Years Experience
✔ Native English Speaker With Excellent Communication Skills
✔ Experienced in a Broad Range of Front End Development Platforms and Technologies
I specialise in UX flow development / enhancement & UI Design and development with a strong visual emphasis on brand consistency, coding best practices for web, mobile apps and admin dashboards using the latest Front End frameworks and technologies:
- Wire-framing: Figma / Sketch / Balsamiq / proto.io / Adobe XD

My skills and experience are adaptable to any front-end framework - I can quickly find my way around most application file structure to refactor or extend existing functionality.
I am versatile and have experience entering a wide variety of projects at varying stages:
Initial text based brief ➜ definition of MVP ➜ wireframe development ➜ working prototype ➜ component definitions ➜ style guide development ➜ production development
My portfolio is available at ui-ux-design dot com.
My process is clear, and can be customised somewhat to suit my client and the team I am working with.
I value time spent discussing and clarifying the brief before embarking on any work so that both sides have a clear understanding and expectation of the work that is required. I work in an iterative way, and am familiar with Agile environments for design and development sprints.
I come with a broad range of experience on many types of projects from start-ups to large corporate companies. Thanks to this, there is a lot of knowledge I can bring to your project.

I have worked in web, graphic and application design and development since.
