Simon Whatley is a user experience designer and creative technologist who is passionate about creating intuitive, human-centred experiences, which help people connect, communicate, collaborate and learn. He comes from an illustrious line of "Simons", which perhaps started with a 1950's personal computer, went via the first ever smartphone, made by IBM, and on to a popular 1980's electronic game. Whilst all these objects share his name, that is where the comparison ends. He's not a digital device, but is passionate about technology, user experience and human behaviour.
Over the past decade, Simon has been fortunate to work across a wide variety of industries and for a large number of clients. These have included Intel, Samsung, Canonical, Virgin, Reedsmith LLP, the Care Quality Commission, HSBC, First Direct, Harveys’ Furniture, Mecca Bingo, Belron, the NHS National Innovation Centre and the National Maritime Museum, to name a few.
