About

Hi, I’m Phil!

I’m a Chris­t­ian, a design­er, and a gad­get fan who lives in Chel­tenham, UK.

As a design­er I start­ed in the world of print design after uni­ver­si­ty in 2007, I tran­si­tioned to design­ing and build­ing web­sites pro­fes­sion­al­ly in 2012 when I set up my own small design busi­ness. I’ve always tak­en the approach of try­ing to under­stand what my users were doing on the web­sites I worked on, and how I could serve them with my designs. Evi­dence based design has is at the heart of what I do and I now put it in to prac­tice as part of the in-house User Expe­ri­ence (UX) team at UCAS.

Away from work you can often find me indulging my pas­sion for cof­fee, in a local spe­cial­i­ty cof­fee shop in Chel­tenham. I also serve in my church help­ing to lead a Mon­day evening youth group, as well as a reg­u­lar small group with a bunch of friends.

You’ll also find me yelling in sup­port of my favourite foot­ball team, Not­ting­ham For­est, or cheer­ing on Team Ineos in Le Tour de France. It’s equal­ly like­ly you’ll find me relax­ing on the sofa enjoy­ing a good book or watch­ing a good boxset (Friends, The West Wing, Des­ig­nat­ed Sur­vivor, that kind of thing).
