about

I am a digital media specialist working at The Open University – that’s me in the picture waving my arms around!

I provide design methods to assist research colleagues in their practice. I do this by shaping design processes suited to the needs of individual researchers or research teams.

I also offer freelance design services, so feel free to get in touch.

I can draw upon over 25 years professional experiences across early multi-media pioneers, advertising agencies and corporate communications.

At The Open University I have contributed as design lead on our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), The Virtual Microscope and nQuire.

I enjoy finding a form of participatory design between myself and the researchers. This form of engagement ensures everyone is fully involved in the outcome.

Sketchbook of mistakes and nice surprises

I periodically update my blog to showcase the little things which excite me about design.

The little things might include new software, new techniques, new books, old methods. Anything which makes the day feel a little better.

nQuire
The nQuire platform serves to provide a sandbox for those people interested in science and research. Participants can take part in research projects or author a project themselves. nQuire was developed…
