I consult with your design team, your stakeholders, and your engineers with a users’ perspective toward delivering the responsive, mobile-first communication and content your customer needs, and your business wants.

Quality platform and website design, hi-fidelity prototyping, best practice techniques, and research build on the success of your company and its services and products.

I am a qualified designer, teacher, and manager specialising in learning and customer transactions in the digital paradigm.

My hobbies include digital painting. I will hold my first art exhibition in July 2017. I am also being coached in how to paint with acrylics and will in turn hold workshops using Microsoft PowerPoint to produce vector graphics. (Find out more at Facebook @artofpatgodfrey).
