You’ve got a track record of outstanding Infographics and UX work across various different screens, be they mobile, connected TV, tablet or desktop. And you’ve got the portfolio to prove it.
You might tend towards data visualisation, information graphics and mapping, or layout, colour and typography. Either way you will have skills you can use to create the ideal user experience. Maybe you have even got something special up your sleeve, like you’re an amazing prototype builder, responsive design expert or 3D animator.
You will have a keen interest in news and current affairs, a firm grasp on how design can make a story comprehensible, compelling and relevant. You will also be able to pitch your work to people from all sorts of backgrounds.
