DETAILS

My name is David Jones and I’m a freelance digital designer based in Hull, UK. I specialise in website design, whether it’s crafting pixel perfect interfaces, putting together a design library to assist the development process, creating low fidelity wireframes or building a website in Squarespace.

Since completing a BA Hons Web Design Degree at Lincoln University, I've worked with large scale organisations, creative agencies and start-ups over a ten year period. As well as offering website design as my main speciality, I also work across branding, print design, photography and other areas of focus. 

When I'm not at my desk designing, I enjoy taking photographs, travelling to new cities, attending football games and running a 35mm film photography page called Hull City On Film on X (Twitter) and Instagram.

FAQS

WHAT IS YOUR PRICING?
I have a daily, weekly or monthly rate. My day rate is currently £320 for a 7.5 hour working day. For projects that have a longer timeframe, I offer a reduced rate due to the larger scale of time that you'll be utilising my services.
Do you work in-house?
Yes. The majority of my projects are based remotely but I'm always open to working in-house or on a hybrid basis within the UK.
What Is your process?
1) DISCOVERY
I study what the client needs through a set of requirements. Discussing what the business goals are, what problems they may have faced and setting clear objectives for the project.
 
2) DESIGN
Following the discovery phase, I put what I have gathered into practice. Producing designs in Figma by utilising a design system for a consistent approach throughout the design and having a swift turnaround.

3) REFINEMENT 
Once the design is in a position for review, I setup a screenshare call, if the project is remote, or book in face-to-face meetings to refine the design. I share Figma prototype(s) for each area of focus, this allows the ability to add comments and give feedback to help the project move towards sign-off.

4) HANDOVER
Once a project has been signed-off, I prepare everything ready for the handover. Sending over any relevant Figma file(s) and supporting documentation.
Do you follow agile methodologies?
Yes. My previous five roles have been with teams and organisations that operate in Agile environments.
CAN I get a copy of your CV?
Yes. You can download a copy of my CV here.
