Hi there. I'm Lachie.
I'm a designer at the frontier of user experience and user interface design. Informed by human-centred design principles, I sketch wireframes, conduct research, and run workshops to gain a deep understanding of user needs. I use these insights to create useful, usable, and beautiful designs for websites and apps. 

I graduated from Massey University with a Bachelor of Design (Hons) in 2016. Currently I'm working at Springload creating people-driven digital experiences. Previously I worked 
as a Service Designer at the New Zealand Police where I've helped to create OnDuty; a mission critical mobile app used by 10,000 frontline officers. OnDuty delivers fast access to intelligence in the field, and increases the speed and accuracy of reporting. 

I've also tutored creative coding at Massey University to help other young designers learn the fundamentals of expressive and artistic programming.

I love reading and learning new things! Here is my bookshelf.
