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 research, prototype and deliver products with effective and engaging user experiences.

I currently work (and live) in Central London as a Product Designer (UX/UI) at Clearscore.

Previously I was at Acuris where I worked on researching and designing the search journey for the flagship M&A deals database, and also built out a set of complex scalable design libraries to cover the company’s six divisions.

Before that I was a UI/UX designer across online shopping at Tesco. I worked on the native mobile apps and website for groceries, a mobile phones ecommerce site, and helped develop the company-wide design libraries across the various platforms.

Prior to that I was working in Southampton as a Designer and Consultant at Alliants where I worked with clients such as Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Travelodge, Ski Solutions, Babylon Health, Sun Life Financial (Canada), CooperVision/Specsavers, Channel 5, butterfly.life, VisitBritain, and OpenJaw Technologies.

I design and prototype multi-platform websites and apps, sometimes developing branding and living styleguides if necessary. In the past I have also worked in 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.
