Hi, I’m Scott. I am a UX & Product designer from Glasgow, UK.
I have 20+ years experience of designing innovative features, products and services that meet business goals and delight users with easy to use and memorable experiences.
Below are some of the most recent projects I have been working on. I can’t always provide comprehensive details of all projects due to ongoing NDA’s, but can provide general information on my role and activities.
Working with the Investment Banking line of business providing UX & UI design consultancy services developing prototypes, designing features, engaging with stakeholders and providing best practice guidance for JPMC’s online trading platforms.
Clydesdale & Yorkshire banking group (Now Virgin Money)
Providing User experience consultancy services developing a variety of features & products including current account opening, credential management, app profile switching, app payment management and a new customer support and telephony platform.
Birdi are a industry leading satellite imagery and data insights company. I was commissioned to work with the Birdi team to redesign their core product: Their satellite image viewing tool. I performed a heuristic evaluation, wireframed a new UI and user journeys, produced high fidelity mockups and handed off UI assets to the dev team. I continue to work with the team to develop new features and consult on UX best practices.
Bellrock Technologies’ flagship product ‘Lumen’ enables companies to connect multiple data sources to gain smart and deep insights.
I have been working with Bellrock to evaluate the efficiency and usability of the Lumen product, provide recommendations for enhancements, design a new UI and consult on new features. Working closely with the development team and business stakeholders to help drive forward the user experience of the product to meet business goals and delight users.
My Skills & Experience
I believe in adopting a flexible approach driven by the particular needs of individual clients and projects. Below are some examples of methods I use to add value to my clients projects.
User interviews, persona development, customer journey mapping & storyboarding – I use a combination of all these techniques (and more) to better understand your users, their behaviours, needs and motivations.
From a lean process through to a full UX strategy covering design patterns, principles, interaction guides and component libraries…Whatever your needs, I can work with you do develop a UX strategy that delivers.
Wireframing & Prototyping
I use wireframes to communicate functionality, interactions and processes in a way that brings abstract concepts to life for colleagues, stakeholders and users. I have a wide range of experience developing lo-fi and hi-fi prototypes to help validate ideas and help drive user testing
I am experienced in evaluating products and systems against the 12 industry standard best practice principles. This process enables me to identify usability challenges and opportunities to improve the user experience.
Engaging with users early and often to validate solutions yields the greatest results. Whatever your requirements or budget, I can help plan & conduct user testing sessions & evaluate results, provide reporting and actionable insights.
Design sprints are a rapid ideation method first developed by the team at Google Ventures. I am experienced in using this methodology to help cross-disciplinary teams rapidly understand, define, prototype and validate a design solution.
