Hello everyone, I've been a design practitioner and experience strategist for 23 years and have led and mentored designers at many agencies and firms including Fjord, Ogilvy and AKQA. I've hired and developed the careers of more than 100 people and coached and mentored over 50 to senior design and studio positions in Service Design, Product Design, UX and UI using a proven career and promotion framework designed to highlight areas of growth and improvement which we work through together. I like to get to know people on a personal level which means we can structure the mentoring to suit your specific challenge and the practical application of it in your environment.

More about me, I like use a range of design methodologies to solve business problems and conceptualise solutions and services to shape, build and launch products for clients across every industry including retail, FMCG, financial services, energy and telecommunications. I focus on cross discipline, collaborative design projects, with specialists in adjacent fields such as technology, IT, marketing, business strategy and sales to deliver measurable results and inherently change customer behaviour. I have judged at digital and advertising award shows including Cannes Lions.

What mentees say



5 out of 5 stars

I am very happy about having had Emma as my mentor. Her guidance was key in pushing myself to refocus on my core skills and on how to make them stand out more effectively in my cv, online design portfolio and on public forums. While going through my work history, she acted as a mirror Her advice and counsel really helped me gain critical awareness about myself and how to communicate with employers and business partners.
