Maker & problem solver.
A little about me
I'm a Designer. Whether you want to call it UI, UX, Product, Interaction... It doesn't matter - I solve problems and craft usable and beautiful digital products. I would like to think that I adhere to the same principles as other great designers like Dieter Rams, and Josef Müller Brockmann, but there is still so much to learn. And that's a good thing.
What I'm doing right now
Currently Lead Designer at Streetbees, helping to build a world class data product that enables clients to gather data that has previously been incredibly expensive, and time consuming to gather, while at the same time paying participants a fair price for the experiences they are sharing.
A day in the life of a designer at Streetbees can go from sketching out interfaces, building complex prototypes, pushing pixels, chatting to users, and sometimes - playing Mario Kart.
"Rhys is a well rounded product designer with a fantastic and genuine understanding of what it means to be user focused. As my first dedicated design hire for the mobile team at lastminute.com his attitude, enthusiasm and knowledge had a huge, positive impact on the way the business views and understands mobile design, impacting product decisions across the group."
- Neil Dare-Wiliams, Director of Design for lastminute.com
"Everything that Rhys delivered whilst I worked alongside him was always backed up with a sound understanding of the business need and rationale, which made my job as BA a lot easier. Along side that, Rhys is a great team player and fun to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend him or work with him again"
- John Petrie, Business Analyst HSBC
"He always puts the customer / users first, thinking widely in what a customer could do and how the experience using the product could be - On top of that, he is able to provide us with animations coded in Framer, which are really useful not only for us developers but product owners and stakeholders, to have a clear idea of what is going to be built and what the product will look like."
