Robert Stringer

A User Experience Designer from Belfast

I've been designing web products and online services for over a decade. I'm a proponent of user-centered design and would very much like to talk to you about things like rapid prototyping, living styleguides, content strategy and usability testing.

I'm an accomplished designer and have had the privilege of working with lots of great clients over the years. Recently, I've been working on improving government services.
