Summary

My name is Paul Huxen but you can call me Hux. I'm a product designer with 10 years of experience. Design has always been my passion and delivering intuitive, innovative applications is what gets me out of bed in the morning.

I spend my days creating UI‘s for apps and responsive websites in Sketch, designing user flows in Axure, making icons in Illustrator CC or just coding some quick prototypes.

You can find a selection of the work over at my website or drop me a message to have a chat.

TL:DR I love designing cool things

Senior Designer

Seven Seconds + BBH

I was brought in to work primarily within Boots BetaLab — an ideas lab made up with members of Boots, Seven Seconds, and Accenture. The workload consisted of quickly prototyping and testing ideas such as digital advantage cards, weight loss programmes, and package tracking + delivery methods. Any ideas that worked and tested well were then combined into a full redesign of the Boots app with a fresh new UI kit.

As well as working on Boots I worked on other clients such as British Airways, Virgin Media and PayDashboard.

Basically I designed a lot of cool stuff.

"In addition to being a highly-skilled, rounded designer whose experience shows clearly in his work, he also somehow managed to be the most sociable designer in the office whilst almost always having his headphones on.

Incredibly technically proficient, Paul is also the go-to guy for design systems and all manner of Sketch wizardry.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Paul and will hopefully work with him again in future!"

Tom Ellis - Design Director @ Kingfisher

"Paul is an extremely talented designer. I had the pleasure of working with Paul at Kingfisher Digital. Paul is dedicated, hardworking and innovative. He is also a great teacher and support to his colleagues. Paul is always a joy to be around and I would welcome the opportunity to work with him again in the future."

Lottie Jones - Designer @ Kingfisher

"Paul is a talented and passionate designer who really cares about his craft. He's always looking for ways to incorporate new techniques and technologies into his workflow, and as such helps to keep other members of the team on their creative toes.

His design work is always aesthetically pleasing, but crucially, he works hard to address user feedback and is a great problem solver too. I hope we get the opportunity to work together again!"

Sam Gilbey - Art Director @ Seven Seconds

“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.”
