I’m a UX Designer

Mark Jenkins, Mobile UX & UI Designer, London, UK

Design is more than just how things are displayed visually. It’s a culmination of how things look, read, work and ultimately, delight the end user.

My name is Mark and I’m a UX and UI Designer based in London, UK. I’m currently working at Just Eat as UX Web Lead.

I’m also a Lead tutor for Guardian Masterclasses, teaching their “Blogging for Beginners” class and co-organised and present at the “Blog Like a Pro” conference.

I am extremely passionate about mobile, design, the web and have a keen interest in social media.

My critical eye for design and strong attention to detail means I am dedicated to creating quality, user-centric experiences and interfaces. Endeavouring to simplify the user journey and interface so that the proposition is clean, concise and logical, I am able to take initial ideas and transform them into wireframes and working prototypes that aim to fulfil business goals.

Then, working these up to layered designs, I work collaboratively with developers to ensure the design is represented in its code form.

Throughout my career, I’ve been privileged to work at and with some fantastic companies including Camelot, Unilever, Hyundai, Time Out London & International, The Guardian, Hilton International, The Virgin Group, Fallon London and HTSPE.

Things I like doing

Since 2007, I have run two award-winning blogs, UK Street Art and Friedmylittlebrain which are supported by my keen interest in graffiti, street art and slight obsession with electronic music.

I remember the birth of the MP3 and have been involved ever since!

I enjoy travelling abroad, and exploring new cities, taking in the ‘locals’ view of things. Posting photos of random things and food to Instagram. Going out with friends to festivals, gigs and clubs and love cooking for friends and family.

I’m also always tinkering around on the web, breaking trying new things.

I often post (a lot of) links to things I find on my Twitter.
