Andy Parker

Experience Designer

As part of the User Experience Design team, Andy specialises in Interaction Design and Information Architecture, and has worked on projects with Lloyds Pharmacy Online, The Wellcome Library, The Francis Crick Institute and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to name a few.

Designing a brighter future

Often found introducing user-centered design principles to businesses; promoting concepts such as progressive enhancement to development teams and content-first strategy to marketing teams, Andy’s broad skills and a passion for education have led to mentoring students at several UK Universities and youth community projects such as Young Rewired State. He has spoken and taught workshops at events including UX Cambridge, UX Bristol, Talk UX, 300 Seconds, and The Content Marketing Show.

A life in journalism

A prolific writer, photographer and music-lover, Andy’s work has been featured by international press outlets BBC, The Sun, Pitchfork, Thrash Hits, Drowned In Sound, Rock Sound and Metal Hammer. He has led photography teams at events such as Sonisphere, Download and The Great Escape. He also writes for leading industry publication Net Magazine.
