Mike Sizer

I enjoy putting my energy into crafting products that help people and that they delight in.

My aim is that the design is invisible and the interactions are intuitive. Design should facilitate meaningful impact and ensure the user is fulfilled.

As a result of my background in code, my designs are always feasible. I can contribute to layers of the stack past the initial designs like prototyping and working along side developers.

I’m keen to collaborate with other experienced designers, advance my skills and share my learning to level up team members.
