Work Experience

pebble {code}

July 2014–present

UI/UX Designer

Working within a team of developers and designers, I am involved from initial ideas, wireframing and designing, through to the actual building and creating of the product itself.

Hack days and workshops are a big part of the job, where innovative ideas are generated around a topic for a client and the selected ideas are then designed and built within a single day. This results in fully working prototypes that can test the validity of the initial ideas.

Freelance

2010–2014

Designer and frontend developer

Involved from the concept/wireframe stage through to the management of the final deliverables and their visual and user experience design. Working with clients including Intel, AstraZeneca, WZO, EDF and APM Technologies.

Peter has teamed up with consultants including pebble {code} (software/app design and development), Electronic Ink (design research consultancy) and Tobias & Tobias (user experience consultancy) and working alone with clients on a one-to-one basis, from initial talks to final deliverables. Peter is always willing to learn from the feedback of his peers and others. Function is the key element to his work – once the functional experience has been developed, the visual design is applied through an iterative process, resulting in a refined deliverable.
