Let's talk
about Darren.

A designer from the UK, Boston Spa to be precise, right in amongst it in “that there York-shire”.

I hail originally from Middlesbrough, up in the North East. Yes, that place where they eat those Parmo things.

I’ve worked in design for 15+ years, at global corporates to the man and his dog at the end of the road. Both internally and freelance, I can turn my hand to many things...

  • User interface (UI), product & visual design.

     
  • Front-end coding (HTML / CSS / JS) & responsive design.

     
  • Design leadership & colleague mentoring.

     
  • Implementation & passion for design consistency, pattern libraries, design systems & the likes.

     
  • Ability to prototype from low to hi-fidelity using tools such as Axure, Marvel, Principle through to hard-coded HTML, CSS & JS.

     
  • 7-8 years experience working 'agile' alongside developers, testers, product owners, business analysts etc.

     
  • Interaction design.

     
  • Design iteration & optimisation, A/B & multi-variant testing.

     
  • Validated design through quantitative/qualitative insights, data, reaserch & usability testing.

     
  • Proficient using software such as: Sketch, Photoshop, Illustrator, Uzer Zoom & Zeplin amongst others.

     
  • Audio/video editing & creation with the likes of Premiere Pro.

     
  • Branding.

     
  • Stakeholder management all the way up to director level of big corporates.

     
  • Workshops, idea generation, white boarding sessions.

     

…and lots more.
