Freelance UI Designer

Hi there. My name is Ben Stevens and I am a freelance UI designer and front-end developer based in the UK.

Since 2008 I have worked with digital agencies, non-profit organisations, charities, and small businesses as a freelance UI designer and front-end developer.

The type of project I work on varies greatly, from websites and mobile apps, to games and interactive installations. What is consistent is my commitment to delivering exceptional digital products. Having an equal amount of experience as designer and developer allows me to take ownership of the process, guiding clients through the constantly changing digital landscape.

Past work includes an award-winning iPad app that helps primary school children learn joined-up handwriting, a website for the music producer behind the Spice Girls, and interactive touchscreen games for a visitors centre in St. Lucia. You can see more on the work page.
