We Design Experience

As a user experience designer I try to keep my design philsophy simple:

  1. If design conventions exists, follow them.
    Design convention is the bedrock of intuitive design. Do your research, use established design patterns, and don’t try and reinvent the wheel!
  2. If it's new, get it out there, and test, iterate, test iterate etc.
    If you're designing something novel, don’t get caught up in battles trying to get it 99.9% right. Get it to 80%, get it live, and track it/test it, get actionable insights, and then iterate.

Here are some of the thoughts and ideas that keep me up at night..

Hi. I'm Stuart, a User Experience Designer & Rapid Prototyper. I like taking things that don’t work well, and making them work well. The more challenging or fiddly the thing, the better!

I like prototyping concepts in Axure RP 7, and like using it's clever features for managing a user-centric design process.
