KD Web

- I have created web and visual design for 40+ projects, using expertise in digital design, branding, UI, user experience and graphic design. As part of a core team working with the Head of Digital Production and Delivery, I work on varied portfolios: B2B and B2C; startups and large companies; Corporate, Finance, Healthcare and E-commerce. - Expert in conceptualizing and delivering elegant, user-friendly solutions effectively and efficiently: I personalise each project by working with great autonomy and suggesting design implementations tailored to each client's need. - I have implemented a quicker, more efficient design process by streamlining communication with the technical and development teams, and using prototypes to reduce meetings and written communication. This has resulted in improved team collaboration and faster turnaround. - I create attractive client presentations and lead pitch meetings with the use of prototypes and mockups, and excellent persuasion and communication skills. The combination of soft skills and efficient visuals to demonstrate concepts has led to reduced review time prevented misunderstandings and won over hesitant clients. KEY ACHIEVEMENT: in 2019, I was instrumental in creating and launching the collaboration platform FutureNHS, contributing user interface and UX projects. The ambitious platform connects staff across the health and social care system, and facilitates

Focused on web and digital design as part of a boutique design and production studio. Combined my skills in graphic, digital and front-end technical designs to implement functional and unique websites for creative clients like Bibliothèque, North Design, MBDs and Design Bridge. - Expanded existing projects by actively working on the entire design process: generating ideas for clients,and applying them to projects in order to increase accessibility and help clients connect with their audiences. - Worked closely with the studio team to design and produce 10 websites and projects, using prototyping and motion design prototypes as a way to help the studio conceive high-quality, human-centred products that deliver outstanding user experiences. KEY ACHIEVEMENT: in 2016, I produced an interactive intro and slide webgl slide animations for exclusive talent agency Linden Staub (Bibliothèque), by using responsive graphic design for web, working with code animation, motion prototype and internal .js library. This project required a high level of technical skills, which was an opportunity for me to learn and gain working knowledge of creating webgl interactions -- an essential skill to this day in my work as a digital designer.
