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 20+ 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 Figma & Axure through to hard-coded HTML, CSS & JS.

  • 20+ years experience, working across waterfall & agile delivery processes.

  • 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: Figma, Sketch, Photoshop, Illustrator, User Zoom & Zeplin amongst others.

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

  • Branding.

  • Stakeholder management (inc C-Level).

  • Workshops, idea generation, white boarding sessions.
