Jon Bennallick

Digital product designer based in London,
specialist in user centred design

Since 2011, I've been designing digital products for small businesses, startups, charities, individuals and global companies using user centred design methods. Some of these small businesses have grown into companies with multimillion pound turnover, with one startup reaching a funding target in early 2016. Since June 2015, I've been the Lead Designer for a Global Financial Services Company with over £5billion turnover.
"Jon has a very good understanding of UX and design principles and can communicate them clearly. He knew exactly what type of photographs he wanted to include in the site and worked with a photographer to obtain what he had in mind. He was a pleasure to work with and this was a great way for me to learn about UX and web design."
