I am an RCA trained interaction designer, working on digital product strategy and software design.
In 2010, I founded Signal Noise – a design agency that sought to reinvent how people experience data. Working for clients like Two Sigma, McKinsey and Siemens, we created award winning and category defining content and products.
Signal Noise was acquired by The Economist Group and today, I am shaping a new category – Simulation Intelligence – through my latest venture, Parallel.
My approach is about combining strategic intent, genuine novelty and digital craft within sectors such as management consulting, consumer electronics, financial services, media, technology, logistics and manufacturing.
Rip, fold, mark, touch – far from being static, print can be a highly interactive medium. Combining conductive inks and proprietary electronics elevates the humble sheet of paper into a bridge between the digital and physical.
Technology is at its most exciting when it feels like magic. Whether through physical computing or unusual uses of data, making the invisible tangible is a powerful way to engage and delight audiences.
Successful interfaces for information spaces should feel like they’re in conversation with the viewer. As a data-designer, the first question you should be asking is “What is it you need to know?”
