About me.


Neil Berry

I'm Neil Berry, a curious and multi-disciplinary product designer with over 20 years of experience designing and building digital products for web and mobile.My passion for design and creation started at university in 2003, where I built my very first website and began to teach myself how to code to bring my ideas to life. Design is at the heart of creating engaging and user-centred digital experiences. It didn't take me long to realise it drives business success too. I'm deeply passionate about the creative process and love understanding user goals, motivations, and pain points and using this knowledge to inform my design decisions.With a strong blend of UX and front-end skills, I've held various design roles in companies like Direct Line Group , Charities Aid Foundation - who send over £800m to charities each year, Logistics UK and GE.I live in Tunbridge Wells, Kent with my wife (and fellow UXer), Christine, and our young son.
