I'm Logan, a UX designer with supplemental technical skills. Having mostly worked for governments in Aotearoa New Zealand, my strength is in designing web and mobile apps. I'm known for finding simple solutions for complex problems. What sets me apart as a designer is my functionality first stance, considering not only usability but also optimisation, accessibility and security.

I worked in several agile teams and the key thing people appreciated about me is that I don’t get attached to ideas. So my design work is always about the ‘user needs’, not myself.
7 years of designing digital products taught me to lend my skills to everyone around me and ask for help. So we can reach our destination faster rather than get competitive.
Working in large government organisations helped me learn how to bridge the gap between creative and technical people and lead the UX process rather than try own it.
