Nick Black

After 8 years in animation, in 2018 I retrained as a UX designer and researcher - Now I solve problems and make things easier to use. 


I was drawn to product design for the collaboration, satisfaction and positive impact. Throw into the mix a healthy dose of analysis, psychology and creativity and you have yourself a winning combination!

I've been very lucky and been a design omnivore - ​apps, mobile/desktop, B2B, B2C, fintech, proptech, service design, mass market, startup, enterprise, and more. I currently work in a tight-knit technology team at construction startup Modulous.
