Hi I'm Rob!

I’ve been around the block, and accumulated a decent spread of experience since I started out in the pro game back in 2006.

About me.

I am a Product Designer with 15 years of experience in the digital design game. For the past 6 years, I have been sharpening my skills in the London start-up tech scene.

 

I certainly have some funny stories to tell about a few random gigs I have picked up along the way. It’s been a hell of a lot of fun the past 15years, that’s for sure. 

 

As you can see on the right (or below on mobile) I’ve picked up a fair few friends along the way as well. Designing, products. apps, design language systems, websites...you name it, I've likely done it at least once.

Anyway, I’m a friendly kinda chap so ping me a message at the bottom of the page if you want to natter.

Testimonials.

Rich Waldron

CEO & Co-Founder of Tray.io

“Rob helped us during a critical time when we were finding market fit and taking seed investment. He delivered a branding overhaul for us which helped us stand out in the market and helped bring consistency to our UI patterns at a time that we were building features and functionality at a frantic pace.

 

He was a valuable asset to us during this time and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to any new venture looking for someone to take the design of their product and brand to a more serious level.”

"I consider myself very lucky to have had Rob as both my line manager and Lead Designer.

 

He taught me a wealth of design knowledge that I did not know but needed to, and did it in a way that was fun, focused and meaningful all at the same time. As a line manager, he is a motivator of the best kind, he guided me with theory, reasoning and encouragement. He pushed me when needed. Taught me the importance of pixel precision, the beauty of simplicity, and how to communicate your ideas with a good story.

 

He also taught me that if you laugh and smile, even when the going is tough, you can keep your team charged with good vibes and trust. I would work with Rob again in a heartbeat, and anyone who gets to is very fortunate."

Andrew Sharland

CEO & Co-Founder of Fresh8

“Rob first joined us for 6 months as a freelance product designer, 12 months later we managed to entice him back in a full-time role to take charge of design.

 

However, it wasn’t just his design & experience skills that he brought to the table. He often filled the role of product owner and sat on our leadership team offering support to myself and all senior members of the business.

 

His ability to solve complicated business problems with a design-led approach has been so valuable to the business. It also helps that he is a decent guy that is calm and upbeat in all situations, no matter how difficult.”

“I hired Rob because he is a brilliant designer, but over the two and a half years of working with him, I found that he is so much more. He knows design process inside out, executes work with pixel perfection and can always guide others to the same standard.

 

He not only understands user experience but is an advocate and has pushed all around him to deeper understand this. He always displays a high level of professionalism and his calm-relaxed manner is a benefit to everyone around him.”

Danny Roca

Strategist & former colleague

"Rob's approach to design builds from his passion for UX enabling him to bring elegant solutions to sometimes complicated business problems and can bring insights to loose briefs.

His passion for strong creative lies not just in the quality of his work but in line managing and motivating other members of the team, giving guidance and ensuring that every project is an opportunity to do strong work.

Rob is a valuable addition to any team and I look forward to working with him in the future."
