Designing meaningful experiences.
Stephen West started his career working as a website designer in the early days of the web.
He has regularly freelanced over this career and has often been tempted to take permanent roles and has done so while freelancing at Elevate Credit as Design Manager there, He created and installed a visual design system, substantially reducing the UX debt by 60%-70%. He restructured the design team to create a more user-centric experience by bringing on board a UX designer and starting an optimisation program to seek out opportunities to improve the product performance.
Stephen’s passion extends beyond design. He has an enthusiasm for technology and science. Principally about the human journey and how technology is transforming it. The ability to take on board new technologies to create richer experiences is one of his key strengths.
A confessed food and drink connoisseur, in 2018 he put into motion a goal to set up a food business and now runs a mobile coffee service form a converted Jeep which he operates at Wedding, Festivals, Exhibitions & Events. Stephen plans to grow Hixon House Coffee into a franchise and deliver the same level of design success he has had over the last 20 years.
