Design systems

I treat every project as a design system. My passion for system thinking keeps even the largest and most complex pattern libraries coherent, usable, and scalable. I have experience designing, structuring, and maintaining multi-channel atomic design systems for some of New Zealand’s largest companies and brightest startups.

I help tech and SaaS startups – often from inception – craft their digital strategy, branding, apps, and web design. This strong basis in design has helped propel them through successful investment rounds and international growth.
