Hello my name is Theo Young and I'm a Website & Product Designer. I’m a creative and a pragmatist. I design websites, digital products and user experiences. Let's get acquainted.
I help companies design and build their digital products. I think creatively about the user, help stakeholders to meet agreement, and draw on my own experience to offer solutions – which engage, entertain or solve problems.
I’ve designed and managed for tech organisations like Couchbase Plc, Palo Alto Networks, Ping Identity and Regit.cars. I’ve implemented design systems and strategies for Marketing Agencies like MediaCom, Sticky Eyes and Modern English Digital – and consulted for firms such as Astra Signs, Protective Packaging and Lane End Group.
I’m a Product Manager and UI/UX designer, and I’ve worked with hundreds of products over the last decade – big & small. I can also help you access other experts for your project.
I have experience working in multiple roles in the management, design and product development process, in small startups and B2B agencies, to established multi-nationals. My experience and approach has been an asset for many projects.
I dissect, question and diagnose. I ask the right questions, write the right briefs, and build the right teams.
