Hello, My name's Martin. I've been creating digital products, user experiences and branding for over 16 years. I keep things simple, creative and nonsense-free.

From bases in London and Melbourne I work remotely with start-ups and famous names from all over the world.

I've gained an unusually versatile skill set from a love of side projects, varied client work and six years at a tech start-up that was acquired in 2020.

How I Work

how i work

Whatever I’m working on, I always follow the same simple approach…

Properly understand the project goals, who the audience are, what they want and what already exists.

Test early & often using sketches, mock-ups & prototypes to quickly learn what works.

Create organised systems of design & brand components that are easy to use & maintain.

Continuously refine & develop over time based on methodically gathered feedback.

“Martin makes my life easy. He’s one of those rare people that I can give a brief to and then relax, because I know he’ll come up with something fantastic.”

“Working with Martin has been a pleasure - he is a true professional who always delivers what he promises!”

Veli-Pekka Julkunen
Co-founder of Game Refinery

"Martin is an exceptional designer who goes above and beyond to understand and incorporate the client's vision and bring it to life in his design.

Martin worked with us to deliver our responsible technology consumption app Goozby from concept to launch, including focus group testing, design concepts and UX. Goozby was finalist for the prestigious Meffys 'Safety in Consumer Life' award 2019, a testament to the level of quality and innovative thinking he applies. I would highly recommend Martin and look forward to working with him again in the future."

Tarika Marshall

"We were building a new platform and brand that needed to look modern and cater to the nuanced needs of our customers, and Martin delivered.

I was very impressed with his candid, no nonsense attitude and his UX and design expertise. It was a pleasure working with Martin and we look forward to an ongoing relationship that helps drive our products forward."
