Hi, I’m Mark
I’m an experienced and resourceful designer, with good technical knowledge. I originally started out in the 90s in graphic design, mostly working on brand communications, then adding web and digital.
My skills and interests have gravitated towards a current product focus, involving problem-solving, a user-centred approach to design, and building digital prototypes.
Designer & developer
As a designer I’m really interested in how design and software can create value and impact for people. I’ve always been quite a generalist with a wide skillset and strong curiosity, which I see as an asset. My focus is on freelance product design services (UX & UI) and developing websites or prototypes. I enjoy doing this for entrepreneurs or businesses wanting to bring a first version of their ideas to life.
Creator & educator
I help indie creators with basic design skills through various initiatives. In 2020, I created and published Tiny Design Lessons (ebook, 150+ sold) and I’m currently a Creator in Residence for the 100DaysOfNoCode Bootcamp. As an indie creator and no-code advocate myself, I often launch side project products and experiments.
My main passion has always been design, and I really love taking a human-centred approach to solving problems. I'm able to work through parts or all of the design thinking process, from researching needs, building understanding, to creating potential solutions and demos.
Prototypes + MVPs
I really enjoy bringing ideas to life, especially as part of the design process. This can mean building design demos, prototypes and MVPs of new ideas, and websites. Taming the complexity is something I thrive on, using a problem-solving and logistics approach. I help plan, design and execute solutions that work for actual users.
Brand + UI
Early stage startups often struggle with creating an impactful and enjoyable visual design to launch with, when they don't have designers on the founding team. With my background as a brand designer and a good understanding of UI, I help them get to a point of readiness.
