Hello, My name is Simon
I'm a Digital Product Designer living in Bath and working at The Virtual Forge where I am Head of Design & UX
At the moment
I look after a team of 11 consisting of Designers and Front-end Developers
My day-to-day tasks include things like:
- Workshop & Product coordination
- Wireframing and Prototyping
- UX research and testing
- Graphic & UI Design
- Analytical research and Information Architechture
- Front-end development
What Makes Me Tick!
I am passionate about good Product Design and Management.
At the moment I am helping to introduce a more product-focussed approach to our clients. I am a huge fan of the Lean Startup approach and enjoy helping projects iterate and develop quickly using Design Sprints, Rapid Prototyping, Jobs To Be Done and Growth Hacking.
My go-to books are:
- The Lean Startup
- Hacking Growth
- The Lean Product Playbook
- Radicle Candor
Before working at VF I lived in Paris
where I took this photo and worked as a freelance Designer and Front-end Developer
And before that
I was a Senior Designer at Nokia where my team and I produced promotional & editorial graphics for the Nokia Music service
