Simon Ker

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
  • Sprint
  • 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
