My name is Brett Archibald and I am a digital designer.*
I have a diverse skillset and a wealth of experience across various platforms, working on projects from conception to completion.
The fields in which I specialise include, but are not limited to, user interface design, user experience design, mobile apps, and responsive websites.
In addition to this, I am confident working on all aspects of the digital design spectrum, from initial ideation all the way up to overseeing development, and everything in-between.
I have a very strong focus on the user experience and usability in everything I do. Whilst I have worked across a broad range of varying platforms and seemingly differing industries, the same core UI skills and underlying design principles that I apply to all my work are transferable and can be applied confidently to any project I take on.
I possess a keen eye for detail, I am obsessive-compulsive when it comes to pixel-perfect precision, and I have a genuine passion for the work I do.
Whilst I am primarily a UI designer, I have an in-depth understanding of the capabilities and limitations of the various development technologies and platforms that I design for, and a great deal of experience liaising very closely with developers on projects.
I have extensive and expert knowledge of the key design applications, and I am very tech-savvy with an ability to get to grips with any new software or systems that I am presented with.
Although I currently work in digital, I have been involved in design in one form or another for more than 20 years, having previously worked in print, product and interior design.

* There are (too) many job titles that a designer can go by these days, and I don’t want to restrict myself by giving what I do a specific label if it then excludes other aspects of what I do. But stripped right back down to basics, I am a designer in the true sense of the word, in that I design solutions to problems, no matter what type of problem.
