Hey I'm Amy. I'm a Manchester based User Experience Designer, currently working on digital products at the BBC.
For me, the purpose of design has always been to make the world a better place. I am particularly passionate about inclusive design. Endlessly fascinated by people, I believe that all great design starts with great research - speaking with people and observing them to understand how to solve problems they are having, using design.
I've spent the majority of my career working with charities or in public service. This has given me the privilege of having real positive impact with the work that I've done.
Here's a few things I'm particularly proud of:
Project: BBC Green Button: Inclusive TV Triggers
Making interactive TV triggers accessible for people with colour vision deficiency.
Project: Virgin Care: Sexual Health Hub
A sexual health hub and online medical triage to help people understand symptons and book appointments quickly and without stress.
Project: Raleigh International
A website to showcase Raleigh International's impact, volunteer stories and destinations to inspire a new generation of volunteers.
