A UX hybrid, I can adapt to fit gaps at a management level. I specialise in digital transformation, utilising methodologies from startup culture to turn organisations into agile, user centred operations by introduction and scaling user research and UX teams.

I have been working with web technologies for almost 20 years with deep experience across many disciplines, business types and industries both as an individual contributor and in leadership and management roles. you can read my CV to see a high-view of what I've done, read about it on LinkedIn or you can talk to me about it on Twitter and email@byandyparker.com.

My Work

My contributions to the community

I am the founder and host of The UX Coach podcast, a sessional lecturer in digital media at East Sussex College, a moderator and community manager in Designer Hangout, co-founder of Brighton ResearchOps Coffee morning, and a registered coach and mentor with the UXPA.

My portfolio consists of award winning projects, with features in NET magazine, AWWWWards and Web Designer. Occassionally I speak at events, and write articles for industry blogs.

In another life I was a Sound Engineer, guitarist in Here There Be Monsters, a freelance photographer for Pitchforkmedia, Rock Sound, Drowned in sound, The Source, and a senior contributor to Thrash Hits. My photographs have been on the cover of magazines, and the back of toilet doors the world over.

Current status

I'm providing User Research services to The Deparment for Education, Design career frameworks and scaling to a data startup and advising Maptio and Dialectiq.
