👋 My name's Sam, I'm a freelance UX designer and front-end developer from Oxfordshire, UK. I work at the intersection of well thought-out design and front-end build.

Sam Bowler

My skills span from building an understanding of how users perceive your web presence through to building performant, maintainable and scalable websites and web apps.

With more than 10 years of experience in the industry, I have lead both UX and front-end development on a multitude of large scale projects for clients including The Silver Spoon Company, HMV, and Twinings.

My skills cover two increasingly complementary areas of the web

UX and Interaction Design

From workshops and research to wireframes and prototypes, I can help bring a user-centred approach to your project. My ability to also understand the technical implications of decisions helps to mitigate risk at the early stages of your project.
