Hi, I'm Darren. A talented UX/UI Designer, specialising in high quality, clean design to create amazing user experiences.

I like to translate high-level requirements into beautiful, intuitive and functional user interfaces using a mixture of the latest UI trends & techniques.

I have over 10 years of digital design experience which extends from user centered design to brand identity & iconography. I pride myself on my attention to detail. I genuinely enjoy making things easier for others.

Project Reset

In 2014, MoneySuperMarket underwent a major redesign of their website - starting with their Car Insurance comparision product. My part in the project, along with UX agency Huge London, was to work closely with the User Experience, Front-end development & Brand teams to create a new User Interface design.

Tweetagraph

Tweetagraph was an out of work project created by myself and back-end specialist Sam Chivers to create a useful Twiter tool for splitting long tweets into linked ones, without having to reword or abbreviate your original message.

Brand Identity

After the arrival of new Brand Director, Gareth Helm, MoneySuperMarket embarked on their first full blooded brand identity project since I had joined with business. In collaboration with the Brand team, we were able to create a consistent vision for the MoneySuperMarket brand, and create a comprehensive style guide and brand guidelines.

Home Bill Checker

The Home Bill Checker app was the result of an internal Hackathon in MoneySuperMarket, before later being passed to us to bring to life. The basic idea of the app was to use the vast amount of data MoneySuperMarket collects, and allowing their customers to find out how much they are paying compared to their neighbours.

Britain's Got Talent

In 2011, MoneySuperMarket were the primary sponsors of hit ITV show, Britain's Got Talent. Working closely with Freemantle, Syco, Dare and our internal teams, we were able to produce a fantastic consistent execution across our digital touchpoints, including the ITV.com website.
