simple sustainable software

Webflow development & Lean UX consultancy

My name's Pete. I run a small digital product engineering studio in Bristol. I help businesses and agile teams of all sizes integrate Lean UX in order to create simple, sustainable software.

I've helped some incredible companies simplify their products and generate more business through a simple practise that helps them to better understand the needs of their customers.

Thornbury Nursing Services

TNS provide hundreds of last minute healthcare professionals to hospitals and care homes around the country every day. I was hired to simplify the design of the shift search and introduce a range of smart filters that would allow nurses to more easily find the right shift among the thousands displayed within the app.

In order to mitigate the costly results of a suboptimal solution, I designed and built a fully functional shift search prototype using real data. This allowed us to carry out a series of build-measure-learn loops before finalising the design and starting development.
