NHS 24 needed to complete a product deep dive which covered a number of areas. I cannot recommend them enough to anyone considering how to drive forward their digital ambitions and develop greater user insight across their digital estate and transformation strategies.
Border Crossing UX spent a great deal of time canvassing opinion, not merely from us the client but from other stakeholders, to genuinely understand the nature of the brief. This was particularly important to us. The technical delivery was excellent but the softer, message-sharing side, was even better.

I help brands functionally and emotionally connect with people. My empathy and attention to detail helps Clients understand what matters most to their customers.
I love to explore opportunities and validate assumptions using a variety of research and design thinking methods. I am lucky to have a diverse job spanning the business. In essence, my role is understanding what our Clients problems are and their individual context. Then I scope out what needs to be discovered or tested, and how.
With a firm grounding in physics I love analysing and improving services, systems and processes. I am happiest when designing efficient ways to do something, whether it is for a Client or our own business.
I’m constantly amazed at technology, and how the way we use it, can change the way we do things. That’s why, I believe user centred design and continuous improvement are the most sensible approaches to building something new or doing something better.
At Border Crossing UX, I’m responsible for leading user experience projects. Whether we’re defining a user experience strategy or optimising an existing sign-up process, it’s my job to ensure we focus on the people and outcomes that matter.
In short, I’m at my happiest when I get to collaborate with clients on projects that solve challenging business problems.
