Hi! I'm Michael, a freelance digital design consultant working in the fields of interaction design and user experience. I specialise in user interface and application design for web and mobile devices, but love to work with all things digital.

Working both in-house and for design agencies, I have over fifteen years of experience in the industry and offer design team management as well as more hands-on design services.

With a formal education in Product Design, I was fortunate to gain an amazing grounding in design, not only from a creative perspective, but also a commercial one as well. For me, the success of any product or service lies with finding the right balance between the two; combining aesthetic beauty and ease of use with the realities of commercial viability.

I believe design should be an evidence based process built on good up-front research, followed by testing and iteration throughout the design phase and then continual measurement post release.

"Good design doesn't stem from intuition, talent, or luck (although I'll take a smidgen of each). It comes from research and understanding."
— Mike Monterio, co-founder and design director of Mule Design

I'm also a big advocate of making digital products and services that are accessible to all. When done well, they can play a large part in the lives of those with physical and cognitive disabilities, offering the opportunity for greater independence and social equality. Something, I think, that's worthwhile doing.
