Welcome to my

Portfolio

Hi, I’m Ant.

I’ve been working in interactive design for the last 20 years. During this time, I've gained the knowledge and skills to create experiences that are both engaging and functional. This comes from a comprehensive understanding of user centred design, technology and current trends.

I’ve worked on some of the world’s largest brands across sectors including telecommunications, finance, technology, automotive, fashion, FMCG, education, tourism, pharma, home improvement and e-commerce. I’ve been employed by leading agencies including Karmarama, Publicis Sapient, Fjord and Kin + Carta. Further information on my experience and recommendations can be found on my LinkedIn profile and by downloading my CV.

Case Studies

Barclays

Wealth Management iPad App

Barclays

Having worked on previous projects and pitches with Sapient, I was hired to join Barclays design team to work on a new iPad app concept. The purpose of the app was to support Barclays’ wealthier clients in the management of their investment portfolios. This meant the target demographic was 50-60+, and we had to consider that they may be less technologically minded, meaning that the design had to be very intuitive, with usability at the forefront of our priorities.

Centogene

Multiomics Website

Centogene

Whilst leading the UX design team at Keko I had the opportunity to work with Centogene – a pioneering multiomics company. Their existing website was a maze of information; the content was difficult to navigate, and the IA was unnecessarily complex. Because there were multiple types of users – healthcare professionals, pharmaceutical companies and rare disease patients – we had to consider audience segmentation and how these separate user flows could be managed throughout the website. Our task was to streamline and modernise the thousands of pages on the Centogene site, removing unnecessary and repetitive content and organising the remaining to better reflect their core website visitors.

AgeUK

Mobile and Watch Health App

AgeUK

Having worked with The App Business on previous successful projects, I was contacted to work on an app for AgeUK – one of their charity clients. The requirement was to create an MVP, targeted to be used by elderly and vulnerable people and would be available on both iPhone and Apple Watch devices. Because of this, accessibility was a high priority in any consideration of the overall user experience.

Porsche

Internal Process Software

Porsche

The Volkswagen Group were one of Keko’s main clients and I had the opportunity to work on some of their sub-brands, including Bentley and Porsche where I was leading all of the UX and UI design. At Porsche, the process of servicing a customer's vehicle was managed by a series of internal software systems, and with 46 centres across the UK (including Porsche Service Centres) this meant they were dealing with an outdated ecosystem and lengthy processes at scale. We were therefore asked to look at the design and functionality of the systems, considering the entire offline and online journey in order to improve the overall experience for the customers, and the internal users.

Kingfisher

DIY Mobile App

Kingfisher

Fjord contracted me to work alongside their parent company Accenture and client Kingfisher in a digital hub created specifically for the project. Our team was tasked with designing a mobile app for their sub brand (B&Q) to help customers find the right products for their garden projects and required exploration into new technologies like image recognition. I worked in a cross-functional agile team, collaborating with the product owner, scrum master, business analysts, developers and other designers.

Cockburn’s

Port Website

Cockburn’s

I’ve had the opportunity to work with Storyline Partners on multiple projects, taking on a pivotal role in leading the UI and UX design efforts. One of the notable assignments during my time there involved designing a website for Cockburn's – a prominent brand within the alcoholic beverage industry. Their existing website adhered to a conventional approach, aligning with typical port stereotypes; that it is primarily consumed by an older demographic on special occasions. Consequently, the Cockburn’s site was very similar to that of their main competitors. Our task was to defy established conventions and preconceived notions surrounding port, while simultaneously strengthening the brand's position as the foremost purveyors of reserve port globally.

OSTC

Trading and Education Websites

OSTC

I worked with OSTC on several projects where I was leading the UX and UI design across their websites. Over time, they had evolved from a derivatives trading company, to an education and technology focused business and their existing website proposition had become a confusing mix of information. I was initially brought in to improve the customer experience of the OSTC site overall, with a focus on redesigning how the company structure and product offering was presented online.
