Stiven | (ˈstiːvən) | Crown; victorious.

Skyrah | Eternal strength, love, and beauty.

Hey there, I'm a London based holistic designer focussed on making simple, beautiful and delightful products. I spend at least 40 hours of my week designing the future of Amazon Prime Video but I also have many other projects on the go and am constantly learning. I graduated from Loughborough University in 2014 with a 4.0GPA and hold the succinctly titled degree of: "BA Industrial design and Technology with a Diploma in International Studies" accredited by the Institution of engineering designers. 

Much of the work I do spends its time happily nestled behind an NDA, but as and when things go public I update my website so you can experience it too. My work spans from industrial and product design to service design and UX, throughout it I aim for holism and consider the circumstances and wider scenarios of use, emotions, physical states and connotations of a design. I apply a people-centered iterative design process and have full stack experience taking ideas from sketches to prototypes, to rounds of testing with customers, to finalized mocks, to stakeholders, to company leadership, to developers and to millions of customers (usually starting at 1%). I also like cats.

"Stiven approaches every project with tremendous enthusiasm and always champions users’ needs. His design work outside of UX is equally impressive, he is perhaps the most creative person I have ever met. To top it all, he's an absolute joy to have around."
