Large design projects

I bring creative, critical thinking to designing products and websites and the businesses behind them. For 20 years I’ve worked with well-known brands, government organisations, start-ups and multi-national companies:

Working with Stuff & Nonsense was a great experience. They felt like part of our team and have radically changed the way we design and develop websites.

Luigi Principi, ISO
Ansarada

Ansarada : For over a year, I worked with Ansarada to develop their brand and visual identity. I worked alongside their CEO, CPO, and CMO and consulted on how art direction and design can help in turning Ansarada from a single-product company into a global SaaS business. During this time, their website saw a year-on-year increase in conversions of 320% and prospects rose from 44,000–385,000.  

Greenpeace

Greenpeace is focussed on environmental protection issues in Poland. I optimised their donation process to maximise conversion opportunities by redesigning someone’s journey from their essential campaign pages to donating to the organisation. I designed a set of compelling campaign pages that maximise their conversion opportunities and narrow the gap between their online and on-the-street campaigning. I also created templates and a style guide to enable the team in Poland to quickly develop more effective campaign pages in the future.

SunLife

SunLife is a household name in the UK—providing insurance and financial services to the over 50s—but they suffered from a dilution of their brand across offline and online channels. I improved their consistency and reduced friction between their in-house designers and marketers and external agencies by designing and implementing a new design system that is now the source of truth for their design, marketing, and sales activities.  

WWF

WWF : I worked with the UK team to increase their online adoptions, donations, and membership by designing innovative ways to bundle adoptions and membership. I also simplified their adoption process and introduced new ways to adopt more than one animal. To increase customer engagement and enrolment, I designed compelling new adoption campaign pages.  

Dagens Naeringsliv

Dagens Naeringsliv is the go-to source of news for Norwegian business people. Mark Porter Associates refreshed their identity and redesigned the newspaper. I worked with Mark and his team to design a bold new look for their website, our main focus being to create a consistent reading experience across many digital channels and their print edition.

Kings College Hospital Trust

I worked with the development team at Kings College Hospital Trust for for eight week-long sprints to help them bring together content from six hospital sites into one new website. I solved this challenge by first conducting a thorough audit of their content and user-personas

SAP Caddy On Demand

After workshops with their team, SAP commissioned us to work on several product designs, the most recent being a design for ‘Caddy On Demand,’ an application to demonstrate their technologies at an exclusive golfing retreat.

STEM Learning

The National STEM Center and Science Learning Network websites provided complementary services. I created a new design for STEM Learning that brings both entities together to form a single service offering, designs for responsive website pages, and a style guide. I often collaborate with developer partners and for this project worked with Code Enigma.

The UK Home Office commissioned us to design the website for the Hillsborough Independent Panel’s highly sensitive report. We worked with user-experience consultants Required Experience.

ISO
The International Organisation For Standards (ISO) needed a website redesign with an emphasis on usability and responsiveness, so they asked to see us. Throughout our project we worked alongside ISO’s content producers and developers at their headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.
Latin IQ
Latin IQ is a boutique corporate risk and intelligence consultancy specialising in Latin America. We created their visual identity and designed and developed their website.
Lewa House, Kenya
There’s nothing that inspires us more than a good story and Sophie Macfarlane’s account of how she took over her grandparents’ Lewa House in Northern Kenya was one such story. We created their visual identity, signage, and designed and developed their website.
