What do you do at Headscape?

I like to consider myself a Jack of all Trades, but I doubt I’ll ever give up on trying to master at least one of them. 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 with Sketch or HTML and SASS.
