Rowan Ferguson, Digital Designer

With 15+ years of public and private sector experience, I have developed a unique capability for working across multiple disciplines to create compelling and functional design. Drawing on a deep understanding of design and usability, I thrive in complex problem spaces where balancing the needs of customers with business is key to success.

Core strengths

Under the broad umbrella of User Experience (UX) design, there are dozens of specialties. I have listed the specific areas that I have specialised in. This is not an exhaustive list, but it helps paint a picture of my strengths as a designer. Most of my work is creating digital interfaces for complex web applications but those touchpoints can vary from discovery and research through to visual design and front end development.
