“it's kind of fun to do the impossible”
- Walt Disney -
I'm Ben Brewer, an experienced Product Designer from Kent
Suffolk now working in London. I not only help create beautiful, compelling experiences that solve problems for people, but also empower teams to work more efficiently by following a lean, test and learn approach, while being a strategic thinking, enthusiastic, customer focused problem solver. I've worked on a variety of media and eCommerce projects, from video streaming to buying groceries online, security, in-store experiences, payment, authentication and more.
I've been working as a UX/UI designer on a wide range of products since 2010 after I completed my Graphic Design BA Hons Degree. I'm lucky enough to be part of the Sainsbury's Talent Pool, and have experience mentoring, managing and leading projects with groups of people from different backgrounds.
I love the outdoors (probably has something to do with coming from Suffolk), so you'll often find me out on my mountain bike, playing tennis or going for a run. I'm also a complete camera nerd (view photos on Flickr) so I'll usually have a camera in my hand too! Oh and did I mention that I'm Knight Riders' #1 fan!?
"Minimum input, maximum output. Learn as quickly as possible."
First and foremost, I'll use techniques such as experience mapping, data analysis, Lean Canvas and hypothesis matrix to understand the customer and business problem. I apply a lean, experiment based approach to problem solving, failing fast and learning through doing. I use storyboards, wireframes and prototypes to validate assumptions with customers early and often through different quantitive and qualitative studies. I'll work with developers and stakeholders in an agile way to produce beautiful, accessible, usable products, and finally measure our success using tools such as A/B testing and CSI.
