Hi, I'm Tom.

I'm a Nottingham-based UX designer. I love my work, meeting new people, and discovering new ways to achieve great results. There are no 'hard and fast' rules to getting the job done; I aim for happy clients and flexible working over hours spent behind a screen.

In my client work, I focus on uncovering the 'why' - user needs and pain points, business goals and expectations, improvable metrics - that drives the 'what' and the 'how' of a solution. My goal is to create great products with real people at their heart.

An advocate for remote work, I've been a designer in varying capacities for the last decade. I've worked in a number of industries including telecoms and marketing as an in-house designer, and have worked under my own name since 2011.

History

  • 2018 - 2019
  • Biotaware, Nottingham, UK (Head of Design)
  • 2016 - 2018
  • Buying Butler, Nottingham, UK (Lead Designer)
  • 2013 - 2016
  • Esendex, Nottingham, UK (Designer)
  • 2008 - 2013
  • Vision Express, Nottingham, UK (Communications Manager, Designer)

In past leadership roles I've taken great pride in mentoring team members, providing contextually-appropriate processes and methods to help colleagues achieve their best work. My personal bar is pretty damn high, so I hold only the highest standards for the experiences that are delivered to users of the products and solutions I create.

“I worked with Tom at Buying Butler, where the product had grown over a couple of years, from a raw concept through several rounds of investment, before Tom brought his skills and enthusiasm to the team at a time of growth. Through great collaboration he helped drive understanding of the challenge faced by the product and the users perspective. He continually developed timely alternative approaches to overcome difficulties and make the most of opportunities.”
