versatile UX designer with experience in creating

products using User Centred Design principles.

Francois Bredenkamp

I am a UX Designer based in London UK, with a degree in Fine Art, a User Experience Design Circuit Certificate from General Assembly and a member of the Interaction Design Foundation.

I have experience in collaborating with teams to create full lifecycle digital projects as well as physical Service Experience for companies from a vast range of industries using UX Design principles.

I approach projects by gaining understanding of the business and industry of the clients, through communication and research as well as establishing their goals and challenges, balancing the information with user empathy by understanding user pain points using factual information gained from them either by interview or observation using these facts to create engaging products and services having fun while doing it.

I firmly believe in continuous education and learning from experiences gained throughout your career as well as keeping yourself informed of the ever changing landscape of product development.
