A Little Bit About Me...

I grew up in Hong Kong and England. I now live and work in Hong Kong.

During my career I've worked as a graphic designer, photographer, creative director before transitioning to the field of user experience (UX) design 6 years ago. This go back to 2008 when I joined a financial startup, I was introduced UX (mobile) to create desirable experiences for users. This experience ultimately defined my belief that when designing for an experience or developing a creative strategy, the first step is to define & understand your target audience. This combined with a clear understanding of the client's business goals help steer the creative process and therefore a strong & intuitive user experience. By interacting with  stakeholders, product managers and users at the early stages of development, I was able to design with a clearer vision that helped to bridged the gap between business needs and users expectations. In my past 6 years of experience on mobile, one of the most important rule I've learnt is to "keep it simple". Mobile users don't expect to read manual, the simpler the app the better it will be.

I’m currently accepting new client work. Feel free to drop me a line and tell me a bit about your project.

Thanks for stopping by.

Gavin is a critical asset to the mobile team at S&P Capital IQ. His creativity, eye for design, and team player attitude have consistently enabled us to innovate and improve upon our existing financial smartphone and tablet apps, as well as develop a new and more complex iPad app targeted at senior bankers. His expertise in mobile design, particularly when it comes to the nuanced differences between Android, BB, and iPhone, has guided the team in transitioning from natively built apps to hybrid apps with minimal compromises in user experience. 

His work ethic, adaptability, and ability to work autonomously make him a fantastic designer, and his authenticity, congeniality, and dependability make him a fantastic colleague. It was a pleasure collaborating with him on the mobile projects at S&P Capital IQ.
