Working as a UX team of one, embedded within a client organisation or a singular project allows you to flex your various design muscles.

  • Frameworks to codify the work you’re doing and place it within the organization’s business context
  • Developing design maturity within your organization and your personal practice while enhancing stakeholder engagement and management.
