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 Central London as a UI/UX designer for Tesco.

Before that I was working in Southampton as a UX designer and Consultant at Alliants where I worked with clients such as 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.
