He brings that wealth of award-winning experience to bear at Clearleft, facilitating our teams to work closely with organisations in the design of elegant user-focussed solutions that add value to the business and its customers.

Setting Strategy and Culture

A key part of Chris’s role here is to collaborate with clients to set strategy and embed a culture of digital innovation around products and service delivery. Chris does this through his expertise in qualitative research, systems thinking, workshop facilitation, design collaboration and ideas generation.

He’s a regular speaking at large conferences including UXPA International and MuseumNext, as well as local meet-ups, including UX Camp Brighton for whom he also mentors new speakers. Chris is an annual guest lecturer for MSc courses at both Brighton University and the University of Sussex.

Away from the studio

Chris enjoys outdoor activities, as long as they involve being in a saddle. He cycles both mountain and road bikes, and he's passionate about horse riding, including competing at mounted skill-at-arms (that's cavalry skills to you and me).

Best of all, from the point of view of the rest of us, Chris also makes his own sausages and charcuterie.
