Hi, I'm Adrian



I'm a UX professional and Creative Technologist,
with a background in design and marketing.

I'm all about how creative technologies can be implemented to boost user engagement.

I’m a soon-to-be graduate with an MSc User Experience Engineering at Goldsmiths, coming from a background of 8 years working in design and marketing for healthcare. I have a diverse skillset and I'm taking on creative web development projects, building for VR in Unity and looking for a permanent role in a user-centred environment.

I'm currently working with an Arts Production charity to propose a user-centred and innovative approach to small-scale online donations.

Using empathy to create
true-to-life personas

How (and why) I took time in the design process for a 'conversation starter' app to create realistic personas based on research, and how these were used to come up with plausible user needs.

More about me...

I've worked on projects investigating how a smart home app can be optimised for caring for people with dementia while addressing privacy concerns and designing a research programme to optimise social software to make new friends in the pandemic. I have experience using javascript frameworks like UIKit, building interactive data visualisations, developing in Unity for VR and creative web development projects.

My research interests are in the UX of VR headsets and how virtual experiences can help people interact with Arts institutions during the pandemic.

Before enrolling at Goldsmiths, I was working as a Senior Graphic Designer with projects including motion graphics for digital out-of-home, social creative and print. I’m still taking on projects on a freelance basis so feel free to drop me a message.
