Hi, I’m Matt Grey, a multi-disciplined designer, particularly focussed around Digital Product Design, User Experience (UX), and Usability. Adopting a user-centred process, I design, prototype and test multi-platform websites and apps, as well as architect and manage design systems to drive efficiency and consistency.
I aim to bridge the gap between design, tech, and the business by working cross-functionally to research and deliver real products with effective, engaging, and accessible user experiences.
I am currently based in London and work as a Product Designer at Dojo, previously at ClearScore, Acuris and Tesco.
Prior to that I was working in Southampton as a Designer and Consultant at Alliants, where I worked with a number of clients, including: Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Babylon Health, Travelodge, Ski Solutions, Sun Life Financial, CooperVision/Specsavers, Channel 5, butterfly.life, VisitBritain, and OpenJaw Technologies.
In 2010 I founded a font foundry, which has released a number of free and commercial fonts.
