Ahoy! I am Greg
Financial sector focused UX Designer & Creative Technologist based in Edinburgh.


I'm an award winning Design Lead with over 20 years experience. I specialise in financial technology / fintech where I work with multidisciplinary teams to create delightful experiences and solve real customer problems.

From design thinking, to design doing. I create products and services based on user research, stakeholder insights and data. Other considerations include system legacy, deadlines, technical constraints, legislation and budgets.

The process begins with the integration of a UX strategy into the product or service roadmap. This drives the vision for innovation as well as metric based creation. At the same time, I aim to build a dream team of collaborators who will push UX to new levels within the project. Ultimately, we develop a culture of continuous learning, encouraging constant improvements across the business.


Had the privilege to work with companies such as Royal Bank of Scotland, Lloyds Banking Group, Scottish Widows Pensions, Virgin Money Mortgages, London Stock Exchange, BNP Paribas Bank Polska & more.
