Simon was the first designer I ever worked with when I started out as a content designer at the Department for Education and he set the bar very high!
I learnt so much from Simon; not just about prototyping and service design, but also GOV.UK Design Systems and agile. He’s able to be calm and super productive at the same time as maintaining an acute attention to detail. He always has the end user in sharp focus and thinks strategically about how complex services can be improved. He’s friendly, approachable and very easy to work with in a multidisciplinary team. I’m also very grateful that my many (many!) questions about tech and prototyping tools were met with patience and clear explanations. If you can get him on your team, do it!
