My Biography

I am a freelance designer & front-end developer with four years of industry experience, previously working for Touchpress (an iOS app developer) then Amphio (a digital design agency). Additionally I have completed design and development work for clients such the South India Coffee Company, NHS, Comic Relief and Nominet Trust. Prior, I studied Graphic Design at Sheffield Hallam graduating with first-class honours.

Experienced at working across the product development cycle; from design thinking and research, validating ideas through user-testing prototypes, high-fidelity interface design and front-end implementation of web apps and sites.

‘We’ve been working with Sam for a few years now, so when we needed someone to engineer the SICC website we knew we were in safe hands.

He took our desktop designs and delivered a slick responsive website that was well written and documented, allowing us to easily add new content in the future. As he worked onsite, we could easily tweak the design and copy during development leading to a quick and painless process.’

‘From running sprints, designing apps or rebranding the company Sam always delivered. By handling design and front-end development he increased Amphio’s capacity to deliver more projects.’

Louise Rice
(Formerly) CEO at Amphio

‘Sam played an integral role in all of our work with Amphio. He established a new visual identity for our digital services, contributed hugely to design sprints and delivered high-quality work as part of the Scrum team.

As a project manager, being able to work with the same designer from initial concept through UX, UI and front-end development made the process so much more efficient and consistent. Sam’s approach is friendly and professional – he's open to feedback and can clearly communicate his ideas to stakeholders. He’s a pleasure to work with!’
