Hi! I'm a British product designer with over 13 years experience. Along the way I've developed skills in creating, visualizing and prototyping interactive experiences for Android, iOS and the Web.
My career began in digital advertising where my role focused on conceptualizing and executing interactive flash banners, websites and email campaigns for brands such as BBC, Diageo, Foot Locker, Jaguar and Mars.
I decided to move into designing digital products that people would actually want to use. That led me to ustwo in London where my role expanded from visual design to product design. I acquired skills in understanding and ability to execute developmental processes like agile and being able to lead and encourage close collaboration with all the other disciplines on the product team. In 2014 ustwo set up a new studio in NYC and I was asked to relocate to help it grow. I became the design lead for ustwo’s Wear OS apps which have gained nearly a million installs from users and led to new business opportunities for the studio.
I also played a pivotal role in ustwo’s TV and Entertainment intitative by contributing to projects for Facebook Gaming, Warner Bros. and YouTube TV as well as internal experimental apps like Watch This for iMessage. One of my last projects at ustwo was to work on-site at Airbnb's HQ in San Francisco. I ended up staying there for 4 months working on their Design Language System and helping to ship new features from within the Homes team.
After 10 years working within agencies I was keen to diversify my experience and return to London.
I decided to go in-house and because of my time at Airbnb I wanted something similar in terms of a fast growing, mission-driven company. That led me to Deliveroo where I'm now working on their design system and consumer products.
Most recently I have been volunteering with The Intrapreneurs Club where I've been mentoring and delivering workshops to help their mission of building high performing and diverse tech teams.
So last night we had a Masterclass with @tollerton who taught us wireframing and prototyping @TheIntraClub. It was so inspiring and fun! I learnt loads about the typical steps to take in your creative process and what a great way to get us to learn new skills! 🤓🙌🏽 pic.twitter.com/0YBcTFhdJk— Tracy Gordon (@traygh) October 2, 2020
Wondered what it would be like to work together? These documents might help. The first is the most recent five years of my performance reviews (captured using Culture Amp) and the second is the results from my CliftonStrengths 34 report which looks at my “talent DNA” which can be useful for design managers and coaches.
