- Lead a discovery phase to understand the contributing factors to invoicing errors within a logistics and distribution firm. Developed targeted recommendations and identified opportunities aligned with Human-Centred Design principles to optimise internal processes and organisational structure, ultimately resulting in time and resource savings.
- Elevated a leading property client's value proposition, shifting it from a traditional "bricks and mortar" concept to that of a "tech influencer." This transformation was achieved through the validation of a user-centric, deep-connection social app, redefining the resident experience and significantly enhancing satisfaction and engagement levels, driving repeat revenue and resident tenure.
- Designed and established an insights-driven design system and scalable white-label components for a global entertainment organisation. The initiative empowered their teams to differentiate and expand their product, promoting unity among Design and Engineering teams through a co-designed, common and shared language. The outcomes were increased efficiency, reduced time-to-market, and the provision of a single source of truth.
