In my spare time I often explore areas of design and development I don't get to work on day-to-day. Some projects are fun explorations, while others are the outcomes of learning new skills (such as iOS development). This is an archive of projects that are either still live or were once released into the world. In addition to data visualisation, web development, iOS development, and illstration, I've also spent time writing, data collecting (including gathering data on films, coffee shops and the London Underground), type design, and photography. Some smaller experiements can be found on Dribbble, while projects in 2016 were lost between a hard-drive failure & server crash.

Dew coffee finding app
Role: Mobile design, iOS development, Data collection
I designed and coded an iPhone app as a way to learn Objective-C. Dew was released on the App Store in early 2014. Originally featuring a Parse backend, pushing new cafes to the app did not require app updates. I've continued to use Xcode to build demos, proof of concepts and prototypes.

Despite the name, Flixflip was not related to Netflix. The product was a way to solve the question, 'what should I watch tonight?'. When you flipped, you were given a movie suggestion from the iTunes movie catalogue which had reached over 20,000 films in 2015.
