User Experience Architect - Oct 2011 to Aug 2013

Jam

My role as User Experience Architect at Jam is focussed on crafting user experience around social media projects for clients such as Sky, Microsoft and Samsung.

I capitalise on my broad base of expertise in the industry by sitting between creative, technical, planning and account management teams to provide oversight that ensures rich user experience and interaction is at the heart of everything that Jam produces.

I provide client facing consultation but I also get my hands dirty and execute complete experience documentation to the highest standard. I am a confident manager, comfortable dealing with the recruitment, thought leadership and daily management of small UX, design and dev teams. Most importantly I am passionate about exploring digital creativity by making my own things, writing, listening and learning.

 

Senior Designer - Oct 2010 to Oct 2011

I joined Jam when there was little in-house design offering. I built a small team and was lead designer on all projects going through the in house creative and dev team. Won several high level pitches and was promoted on the back of my performance.

Projects

 

Northern Sky

Out of pure curiosity and wanting to learn, I set up a publishing company called Northern Sky. With my business partner we crafted, beautifully designed, hand coded and properly edited e-publications for sale on the Apple iBookstore.

Ronnie Saunder's Diners Union

Fuelled by a love of food and a passion for exciting projects I helped establish, alongside a team of friends, a successful and critically acclaimed pop-up restaurant in central London. I worked primarily on the website, online booking system and EPOS in the restaurant.
