About Me

I’m Paul, an independent designer, writer and speaker based in Brighton, England. I work with responsible organisations to create purposeful digital products. I value cohesiveness, attention to detail, and developing products that can be used by everyone, however they may choose to access them.

In the past, I have worked with companies such as The Guardian, UNICEF, John Lewis, Mozilla and a number of other clients during my time at Clearleft.

As an interaction designer, I look to create engaging and usable experiences. As a front-end developer, I employ pragmatic architectures to progressively enhance semantic, accessible HTML with modular CSS and unobtrusive JavaScript. As a hybrid of the two, I produce style guides and component libraries so the code I hand over can be understood and maintained by internal teams.

I enjoy working alongside other designers, developers and researchers whenever possible. Living in Brighton, means I’m within commuting distance of London, and relish the opportunity to work with organisations located further afield.

I also speak at events around the UK and Europe. I typically talk about the universal nature of the web, and embracing the aesthetic results this may produce, often with reference to my interests in politics, architecture and sustainability.

If you’re interested in working with me on your next project, or would like me to speak at your event, please get in touch.
