A simple process

It’s not just what you do, it’s the way you do it

1. Discuss

I’ll engage with you to understand the scale of the requirement and propose the best fit. If you have an idea or need something creating from scratch, I can develop your brand or product no matter what stage you’re at.

2. UX design

Generally all projects have a discovery phase of which I may propose a moodboard of ideas, undertake an audit and then craft interactive wireframes so you can review and show potential users.

3. UI design

At this stage a brand identity is either in place or I can work with you to create one. The moodboard from the discovery phase will help inform a creative direction so an overall UI design style can be applied to the approved wireframes.

4. Delivery

Depending on what your product might be whether it’s an app, portal or website, delivery of the final piece of work is produced in Figma where a file is duplicated and shared with development for handoff.

Services

In a nutshell, this is what I can help you with

Marketing websites

The goal is typically to attract people who may be interested in your products or services. Crafting an online presence is critical – I’m here to design that experience and get it right.

iOS and Android apps

Got an idea for an app or need the UX UI reviewing on an existing app? I love creating beautiful user journeys. This starts with initial wireframes through to animations and high fidelity visuals.

Creative Direction

It’s really important we establish an idea of how your product and brand will fit within the market. I’ll define a creative direction in the form of a moodboard to set the scene right from the start.

UI and Design Systems

Having a design system helps build products at scale. What this means is it enforces consistency with reusable components. This is something I use with every project.

UX and Prototyping

You’ll start to get a real feel for what we’re creating when you can interact with a prototype. It helps showcase the end to end flow for potential users and developers.

Consultation and Strategy

You might think you need a new website, well firstly I’ll discuss if that’s the right approach. In the early stages I’ll identify your needs and advise how best we achieve your goals.

Richard helped set the bar in terms of quality, attention to detail, pace and collaboration, between the UX and front end design teams. I was very impressed by how pro-active Richard was. The man never stops working, he would actively seek out new projects with the UX team and request that his design assumptions were given the acid test with real customers. What is more, the feedback Richard received from the lab sessions was acted upon and iterated into his work where appropriate in a very timely fashion.

Richard is a great designer and hungry to check his work and improve it in a user centred way.

James Wheatley

Head of UX at Brass

I brought Rich in to work on site at a client’s premises with me on a large, complex and challenging project. I had been on site for over a year already so already had a deep understanding. Rich quickly got up to speed then translated my ideas into a very elegant and thoughtful design that the client loved.

With a masterful use of Sketch Rich set the project up with a new symbol library and produced an Invision prototype then we started layering on additional functions and exploring the initial concept in more depth, with the design system we had put in place we were able to make rapid progress and keep a strong level of control and consistency.

Rich always challenges what he is given and brings his own ideas which he presents with a lot of enthusiasm, he is very passionate about what he does and i would not hesitate to hire him again in the future.

Alex Kaye

Head of Product, Pitchero

Richard was an excellent addition to our team. His flair for design exceeded our already lofty expectations but his positive attitude and contribution towards other team members was a bonus.

He was a pleasure to communicate with and delivered a high volume of work which always surprised and delighted us.

We would love to have Richard back again in future and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking for a creative and proactive designer.

Philip Taylor

Head of Product, Transport Exchange Group

Richard really helped us improve our design and design processes across our product portfolio. He spent his time with us developing and implementing our design system, visual language and information architecture for the redesign of our products.

He is very passionate about his work which helped him gain a deep understanding of what we do. Also, he really gets work done! Working closely with the team he was able to work on multiple design tasks at once, getting hifi designs and prototypes together for user testing and development quickly and of high quality. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or employ Richard in the future!

Rich has a huge amount of UX/UI experience. He has an impeccable attention to detail and is able to produce high quality work and has a passion for design. Whenever I’ve worked with Rich I find him easy to collaborate and communicate with as a developer.

Sandy Noble

Owner at Click Ignite Ltd

We’ve used Richard for a number of projects to improve the UX on our website and certain email templates. He’s professional, can work to tight deadlines and always suggests improvements on areas we may have missed. We have always worked with Richard remotely, but his communication skills are so strong that you don’t even realise it. I would definitely recommend him for any business looking to improve the UX on their digital platforms.
