About

I’m a young Australian designer living in London. I have a passion for interactive design and often spend my own time experimenting with tech; from playing with new gadgets to developing interactive artworks. I’m always looking for a challenge, which attracts me to UI design with a strong focus on the user journey and experience.

Experience

Domenico Perri Ltd
Freelance Designer
2015 ‐ present

Since university I’ve been successfully working as a freelance graphic designer and front-end web developer. In 2015 I made the switch to become a full time freelancer, working on projects from local companies to tech startups. Most recently I’ve worked with companies such as Head London, Engage Works, Dazzle Ship, Futurebrand, Fine Cell Work and Citizens Advice.


Citizens Advice
Freelance Designer
2015 ‐ present

Over the course of a year I’ve worked closely with Citizens Advice’s digital team to redesign and rebuild their website. This was a broad reaching project, including an overhaul of the design, user experiences, front end development and accessibility at every stage of the process. The new designs were regularly tested with participants in lab settings, resulting in a proven design language which was then documented and made open source. This design language has now become the digital toolkit for other areas of Citizens Advice. Accessibility was a key focus of the redesign and great effort was put into making sure the design and code functioned correctly for everyone, including the blind.


Galvanize Digital Solutions
Digital Designer
2013 ‐ 2015

As part of a very small team I was involved in projects spanning everything from large commercial websites and back-end systems, to native apps. My involvement ran from initial client meetings, through to UX planning, design delivery and project management. Clients I personally dealt with included Discovery Channel, Unilever, Peal & Dean and Atos.


Plain English Foundation
Creative Coordinator
2009 ‐ 2013

My role at the Plain English Foundation was to rebrand the company from the logo up. This included the design and production of all of their printed and digital material. I worked closely with a system developer to build a new website and internal system, coding the front end to be both responsive and interactive. I also created the style and brand guidelines for future brand development.


Barology
Co-founder
2009 – present

In 2009 I was a founding member of Barology, a startup that would index bars and happy hours. We had intended to then expand this with beacons, improving the ordering and payment process, while also collecting valuable statistics. Four years after an unsuccessful launch I took on Barology by myself, stripping it back to an app that simply finds and gives directions to current happy hours.
