I'm Tom, and I design

I work as VP of Design at Lyst, where I'm building a team and a product that lets people search the world's fashion. Before that I led the UX & Design team at a major Fintech startup, worked with my own clients, and was a Senior Designer at a global agency.

I’m a co-founder of the community and event series Design Club, and am an investor & advisor to Bricklane. Sometimes I like to give talks and write about process, hiring, and the business of design.

On this page you can read case studies of some of my work, learn more about my experience, or simply get in touch. I'm currently available for consultation and select projects.

Experience

As head of UX & design at GoCardless I built and managed a small, happy team of designers, and led a major redesign of the core product — a payments network processing over £1 billion every year. Whilst there the company grew from 20 to almost 100 employees, and launched in France, Germany, Spain, and the Netherlands. 'FinTech' also became a thing.

Before GoCardless I spent 3 years working at global creative consultancy Wolff Olins where I was a senior designer. I helped create services, launch products and implement new ways of working for some of the biggest, most complex corporations on the planet.

I am also an investor / advisor to Bricklane, an awesome new company that's going to make it so much easier to save for a house.
