More About Me

I am first and foremost a creative person. Since a young age I have always felt compelled to create things, and to this day I relish the process of absorbing myself in tweaking and perfecting every minute detail of a given project. Attention to detail or obsessive craftsmanship - call it what you will!

As UX Lead at Good Things Foundation, I am responsible for leading the UI/UX design of our products (in particular Learn My Way) and contributing to front-end development.

My professional experience in the creative and digital industries has enabled me to develop a wide range of skills over the years. I have a keen eye for design, which has been honed through my architecture degree and years of visual conception work. I am an extremely adept user of Photoshop, which allows me to rapidly turn any creative spark into reality. My knowledge of HTML5 and CSS3/Less enables me to execute visually striking websites and applications whilst adhering to W3C standards and industry best-practice. My proficiency with JavaScript allows me to implement dynamic elements of a site or application.

As a professional producer and DJ, I also have an extensive experience of the music industry, music technology and audio editing software. For details my sonic pseudonym, check out sabretooth303.co.uk.

Testimonials

We are extremely pleased with the service offered by Ben at Megalodon Design. Before working with Ben we felt nervous and uncertain about developing a website. However, Ben made the whole process feel very easy and he offered clear guidance and support at every stage. Any questions we had were always responded to promptly. Ben worked with a very tight timeframe and budget to develop a website which we feel meets our original brief to a very high standard. We are delighted with the end result.

Lisa Procter, School of Education, University of Sheffield

We couldn’t have had a better service from Megalodon Design. Ben has designed and created both our websites and we’re over the moon with the results. The sites were produced quickly but to a very high standard with minimal disruption. Ben offered us good advice and direction and gave thorough training on using the sites.

Ruth Parrott, managing director, Reach 4 the Stars

I found Ben's approach to designing the Bragazzis website refreshing, professional and efficient. Moreover an excellent approach and understanding of the design brief submitted. It was a pleasure working with Megalodon Design.

Matteo Bragazzi, owner, Bragazzis

Megalodon Design created an e-flyer for one of our regular events. The event theme was complex but Ben worked to the brief and was really creative in the design solution he produced for us. It was a pleasure to work with Ben and I'd definitely recommend him to others.

Claire Will, head of marketing and communications, Contact Theatre

I approached Megalodon Design to put together a site for me. Throughout the process Ben engaged himself with my ideas for the site, and made critical and consistently useful suggestions. The site was tested on various machines, with different web browsers and operating systems. He worked well with my host and got the site up without any hassle.
