Hi there. I'm Lachie.
I’m a Wellington based designer that is passionate about user experience design, creative coding, and typography.

I graduated from Massey University with a Bachelor of Design in 2016. Design for me is a truly social endeavour. It isn’t merely about solving problems; it’s about understanding human behaviour and crafting functional and aesthetic experiences.

I’m currently working at Springload creating beautiful, useful digital products and experiences that enable change for good.

Previously, I worked at the New Zealand Police where I helped design OnDuty, a mission critical iOS app used by 10,000 frontline officers. OnDuty enables access to intelligence in the field while increasing the speed and accuracy of reporting.

Tutoring creative coding at Massey allowed me to help students learn the fundamentals of expressive and artistic programming.
