Dan Butterworth


Dan Butterworth

From Drop Out to Drop-Downs

Dan will be talking about his journey to UX design. Dan is a multidisciplinary designer, cap wearer, hair grower and champion for user needs. He is a former civil servant where he worked as an interaction designer and now works as a UX/UI designer at Veeqo.

Launched at TechHub Swansea in 2013, Veeqo is online software that takes care of inventory, orders and shipping for retail brands. Their software is used by brands both big and small, including Harry Potter and Dove. The software processes over 1.5bn inventory updates every year and over 31m items picked/packed/shipped yearly.

Teamwork Makes The Dream Work

This is a story (and slight rant) about how a project team pulled off a product with an unrealistic deadline, with a tight budget and no brand direction.

Gemma is a Senior UX & UI Designer at UpriseVSI, a creative web design company based in Cardiff who have worked with the likes of Thomas Cook, Celtic Manor Resort, Cardiff Airport, WRU, Cardiff Blues, Jacksonville Jaguars and more. Gemma designs wireframes and user flows all day long, then makes them look pretty. She is very passionate about accessibility standards and strives throughout her design process to ensure she meets the accessibility standards needed.



The event will be held at the ALEX Building, Swansea College of Art, UWTSD on Alexandra Road.
