I began my career 16 years ago when I started graphics in college after loving it in high school. After leaving the Institute of the Arts in Cumbria with a 1st, I decided to pursue a career in design.
I got my first job straight out of uni as a graphic designer for an online eyewear company and became the marketing manager. This is where my love of UX & UI design started. It’s also where I first met Rick, who was a developer on our website at the time.
After 4 years I decided I wanted to work on a variety of projects and focus more on design and the world of UX & UI. I also realised working in a corporate environment wasn’t for me and decided to go freelance for a while. Shortly after, Rick approached me, having recently set up Statuo, and I jumped on board!
I now absolutely love my job and have been here for 6 years. The variety of brand and web projects constantly keep me on my toes and give me the opportunity to develop myself with every project. I love the passionate people I work with and over the years we have become a family together.
When I’m not at work, I am normally trying to negotiate with a 2 year old, going on days out and rearranging my house so it's aesthetically pleasing whilst still being toddler friendly.
I love working with a mix of people that are passionate about their job. Working with a variety of people with their own unique skill sets makes me constantly develop my skills and grow as a designer.
I’m a qualified advanced diver with bsac.
I don’t really have a favourite album, I just have playlists, I’m a bit old school and still like to listen to CD’s and tapes (don’t laugh). I like to listen to hip hop instrumentals to give me focus.
