ABOUT

I am Brian, a freelance UX/UI designer based in Birmingham, before that I was an Industrial designer with over 8 years of experience designing products for high street brands all over the world. 

 

Two years ago, I saw many “Product designer” vacancies online that are not designing any physical products, sometimes I was curious about what they are doing so I did some research about that and this is how I knew UX/UI design. I found that UX/UI was the digital version of industrial design; I look back on finding a vacancy description for a UX/UI designer and thinking that it was all of the things I enjoyed as a job.

 

After that, I researched the design process of user experience design and tried to apply them at work and in my freelance projects, such as user research, journey map, user-flow, wireframe and prototype.

 

I am obsessed with designing beautiful things that also can help people and achieve business goals.

 

In my spare time, I like bouldering, playing squash and playing board games with friends. I can always gain some inspiration from those hobbies.
