Paul Huxen

Senior UI Designer

"Oh Christ" I hear you shout. "It's another UI Designer from east London with skinny jeans and a wardrobe of 80% black things".

Whilst you're right about that I'm also someone that loves the challenge of UX & UI design and turning concepts into reality. I'm currently at Seven Seconds where I get to make a lot of fun things.

My work philosophy is a user-centric design process and apply this to all my projects. The ultimate goal is not only to design intuitive, innovative applications but also delight the user.

When I'm not coming up with witty ways of saying I basically spend my days telling developers what hex code to use, I run my own font foundry, Kraken.

Reviews

Where my old boss says something lovely

If you're still not convinced I'm the fella for you then why not let my old boss sway you with some kind words:

“Paul has a pretty good beard, Paul wears some pretty stylish clothes, Paul's a bit of a creative genius online. Working with this man was a constant source of inspiration for me over the years. If your employment path crosses Paul's, don't pass up the opportunity to work with him.” Craig Collie
Head of design, Mr Site
“I started off with loose ideas and concepts that Paul was able to translate into a realistic website. He was easy to work with, and kept me informed on progress throughout the process. Paul also went the extra mile at the end of the project to equip me with the knowledge I needed to make further updates to the website myself. I am delighted with the look and feel of my new website.” Juliet Adams
Founder, Mindful Net
