What do you do at Headscape?

I like to consider myself a ‘Jack of all trades’ as being the ‘master of none’ encourages more creative solutions. Being required to leap confidently into all steps 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 to designing in design packages (currently Figma and Penpot), or directly in code in HTML/Javascript. I’m constantly on the lookout for new opportunities to learn and develop.
