Head of CX
The BIO Agency
"It’s not easy finding a hybrid in both UX & Service Design (I mean real Service Design) and it’s exactly what we needed. Thomas carried out robust research and validation with analysis, translating insights into designs. Look forward to working together again."
Digital Client Engagement
"I thoroughly recommend Thomas. He quickly grasped the subject matter of my business and the needs of our customers, advocated user centred design and created solutions based on in-depth research and stakeholder interviews. He crafted aesthetic and functional designs, and effectively worked with our development team to ensure delivery."
Experience Design Director
"Thomas worked in my team for almost year on a number of challenging design projects. I experienced him as thorough, efficient, accurate, unflappable. He is open to direction and receiving critique, and fairly challenges where necessary. I would highly recommend him for any UI or UX design work."
"Thomas is a great creative lead, excellent communicator and invaluable team player. He generated a large volume of quality ideas on a scale from quick fixes to blue-sky innovation, orchestrated interactive workshops that helped us prioritise what to focus on, and kept us informed and took on board feedback during rapid delivery cycles."
"Thomas consistently distinguished himself as a wise strategist and top-notch designer. I was particularly impressed by his ability to adapt to changing situations. He approaches challenges as opportunities and is an excellent team (and foosball) player, hard working and a joy to collaborate with."
