Peter Wright

I design, I code, I prototype. The one thing that's always true is that I'm never bored so long as I'm learning.

I design, I code, I prototype.

I’m a London based creative technologist and interactive designer who likes to make stuff. I am a user focused and intuitive problem-solver who loves to learn new things and experiment.

As well as design, I have excellent front-end engineering skills including HTML, CSS (Less/Sass) and Javascript which I use to rapidly prototype ideas for usability research.

I regularly run workshops and design sprints to help people develop ideas that solve real problems. I spend as much time in front of customers as possible.

I sometimes write stuff here.

Visual Design

I am a thoughtful, very collaborative, user & product focussed designer used to working in agile teams. I like to constantly iterate, improve and learn. I have have strong attention to detail and like to be challenged.

Development

As well as design, I enjoy hand-coded front-end development. I have excellent OO Javascript (including jQuery),HTML, CSS (including LESS), WordPress and Actionscript 3 knowledge and understand design patterns. I enjoy learning new languages.
