Search, this one had come up a few times recently. Products for 2ft or desktop web then you do have to option for either advanced search or filters, but for the lean back experience with 1ft mobile or console (e.g. XBOX One or PS4) then more actionable items take up screen space or is limited via the input device.

My previous few projects I needed to address how would any user get to where they need to if you remove full-functioned searching or are there better options overall than the usual search functionality for digital products? Read More...

UX Pointers

What a year, designing across 5 platforms during the last year have been both challenging and rewarding from what I have learned and produced working within a great team.

If I have learnt anything during the last year for experience and interaction design after working with some great people, there are really seven main points of how to design well that have really stood out to me. Read More...

Mobi Ahoy!

After a long and tough year, it was great to get the nod for LexisNexis Red via the Mobile Awards.

The most exciting part is being recognised externally for something I had put time and effort into with trying to produce a great experience for the end client. It’s also great to see the team gain the recognition for something they really pushed to hard to release.

Overall not only being a good piece for the folio, it’s also good to know that the creative and UX direction was both on track for the clients and on track for industry recognition.

A big thanks to all the people who help get us there.

iOS7 isn't Great

With the release of iOS7 I’ve found it to be a very mixed bag, from the one respect we have a new launch via Apple but from the other it doesn’t feel like an Apple products.

I have felt Apple has lost it has way in many regards for design. Where the new iOS7 gave me everything I could ever want out of a mobile operating system, Android Functionality + Windows 8 design. I am more underwhelmed by the new release and the following is why.

The Workible App

Workible has been a side project since January of this year, a great idea for a digital startup that is really gaining traction within the industry for flexible work.

I fit into this venture as the Interactive Art Director and have managed to set the tone for the business’ branding and UX for their digital and mobile strategy. We have a delivered app on the appstore with a massive roll out of the Beta trials, with some great feedback and interest from some rather BIG players out there.

It’s very exciting for something of this nature to come together so quickly and really take off in such a big way, plus it’s an awesome thing to work with a few very nice and passionate people applying what I love doing to their business gaining support for it.

There is more to come on this one though, I feel it’s just taking off.

BRW Most Innovative

Great success! LexisNexis was named in the number 12 on the BRW Most Innovative Companies for 2012.

Ok, so why I am so excited?

The submission was based upon LexisNexis Red which I’ve been leading the UX and creative for since June, so for a very young product we are smashing out great designs for the clients and getting noticed in the process.

What makes Red not only successful but highly innovative for the clients it focuses on mobility and integration via targeted user research and validation of the product with key user groups.

The end result giving us the KFC herbs and spices to create a stunningly awesome app the clients love to use. Also there’s a great article for the NSW Police using my work.

Next stop, the Mobi Awards because I am looking for some more silverware :P

3 Tablets


With the release of some really great tablet devices during the last few months like the Nexus7, Surface and iPad mini it started me to think of with so many of them targeted heavily to the different platforms where would this lead the end consumer?

Each tablet hardware and OS is suitable for different specialised tasks though there is some cross over. During the next few years I can see there is going to be 3 devices within a connected user’s workflow. Read More...
