What do you do at Headscape?

Although I like to consider myself a Jack of all Trades, I doubt I’ll ever give up on trying to master at least one. Being required to leap confidently into all step of the research and design process with the latest Industry thinking ready to hand has given me experience in a wide variety of skills from running stakeholder workshops, through working with Photoshop and developing CSS and SASS.

What has been your favourite project to work on and why?

My favourite project, in recent years, was the redesign of a large online learning environment for Macmillan English, called English Campus. Being a very large and complex web app, it took a lot of work to understand the product fully even before considering ways to revisualise the interface and rework the interaction design. It was one of the biggest design challenges I’ve faced to fully wireframe, prototype, test, conceptualise and create the final user interface design.
