Myself Daniel Steel

About me

Hi, my name is Daniel Steel and I'm a user experience designer currently working within the higher education space. My approach to design is user-centred and minimalist, I believe that each element of a design should add value and serve a purpose for the people using it.

I have a wealth of experience in both research and design complimented by a background in development, I have helped shape traditional hierarchical cultures to become user-centred through research, business metrics, presentations and stakeholder engagement.
