Martin Gray

I am an interaction designer who creates web interfaces and user journeys.

I have witnessed many technological advances and design trends in my career but one thing remains true. Users should be at the heart of design.

I am passionate about delivering good user centred designs. I am currently doing this at the Planning Inspectorate by creating prototypes and workflows for planning appeals.

What I Do

UI Design

User Interface design. Creating production ready visuals based on the wireframes. These are on brand and accurate as possible ready for development..

HTML, CSS, Javascript

Code HTML prototypes for testing. Experienced with the GOV.UK Prototype Kit and the standard patterns using Nunchucks. Publishing on the web via Github and using Heroku hosting service to share it with others.

Wireframing

Wireframes are created in Balsamiq or Sketch and turned into click-thru’s using InVision to test key concepts and layouts without the distractions of branding and cost of development.

Research, test, repeat

Understanding user behaviours, motivations and goals to build successful product experiences. Card sorting, A/B testing, user journeys, personas and analysis..
