Hi, I’m Matt Grey, a multi-disciplined designer particularly focussed around Digital Product design, User Experience (UX) and Usability. I aim to bridge the gap between design and technical implementation by working alongside developers to deliver products with engaging user experiences.

I currently live and work in Southampton as a UX designer and Consultant at Alliants. I’ve worked for clients such as Sun Life Financial, Travelodge, Ski Solutions, Babylon Health, CooperVision/Specsavers, Channel 5 and OpenJaw Technologies.

I design and prototype multi-platform websites and apps, sometimes developing branding and live frontend styleguides. In the past I have also worked with print and illustration, producing album artwork, brochures and books.

In 2010 I founded a font foundry, which has released a number of free and commercial fonts.
