SKILLS

As a digital designer for over 20 years I have used a range of skills, and am constantly looking for new ways to make the UI/UX process more streamlined for both myself and my team; whether exploring and assessing which tools are the best fit (Sketch, Principle, InVision Studio etc.) or seeing how we can make use of design approaches/trends like Design Systems, Atomic Design, Design Sprints, or Material Design.

My current toolkit includes Adobe XD, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Acrobat, and Microsoft PowerPoint(!) and as part of the digital team at WPNC I also use a variety of tools to collaborate internally and externally on projects including InVision, Basecamp, Microsoft Teams, Google Drive, and Slack.
