I have been a UX Practitioner since 2013; determined to understand the user’s world and create solutions that augment their experience.
I bring creative, bold thinking in my choice of research methods. My background in multimedia gives me a common language with designers and developers alike.
My interests involve building systems using new technologies and user interactions, hence my focus on startups. My cycling hobby has spurred the passion for Voice User Interfaces for GPS navigation systems.
UX research, Interaction design
I designed a multimedia system sound and projection for theatre and presented at New Designers national exhibitions, written at BBC GEL on asset design management and contributed to two HCI conferences with my research thesis in MSc in HCI.
We worked with Calliope over a period of several months on an international research project and got to know her well. She is a very responsive and detail-oriented researcher, and engages enthusiastically and critically with research questions. In Calliope, you will find a staunch advocate of the user's perspective - a useful north star to any design project.
Imogen Clark, Principal Design Researcher, Sutherland Labs
Calliope was very easy to work with. She has a lot of good experience and always based her arguments on facts. We're very happy with the work she did for us.
Linnea Söderholm, Digital Marketing Executive
“Calliope was a pleasure to work with. She embodies a very thorough work ethic & has consistently delivered high levels of work with us. I would be happy to have her back within the team, and recommend her highly onwards.”
James Brown, Head of Studio & Operations at TSL Digital
Calliope joined the team part-way through the initial concept creation phase of a digital design project and was able to pick up the work swiftly. This required thorough investigation of existing materials, frequent communication with the other designers and the capacity to continue creating relevant and purposeful ideas. Calliope led a number of interactive working sessions to develop the concepts and she subsequently produced sketched representations of these concepts. Calliope then worked with the team to enhance the fidelity and breadth of the concepts so that they were fit for one round of remote user testing.
Tom Smith, Project Manager
Calliope was extremely efficient and a pleasure to work with. She got to grips with the project at hand quickly and delivered a user research document that was completely on-point. I would not hesitate to recommend working with Calliope again in the future.
Caroline Johnson, Senior Project Manager at Infogr8
Calliope is unique. While working at Three as a designer I worked as a partner with Calliope who was our UX lead. We worked on many projects, in particular a PAy As You Go comparison page. Calliopes attention to detail an through research ensured we delivered a truly successful solution. Being involved in Calliopes user testing enabled me to tailor a design which benefited the user and the business. Anyone who hires Calliope will get a passionate individual who will bring creativity, and an exceptional understanding of the needs of users.
Daren Mason, Owner at Muddy Boots Media
Calliope is a highly motivated student with very good design skills.
Vanja Garaj, Programme Director for MSc in Digital Design and Branding
Calliope produced an excellent logo design for the EngD Centre at UCL. She submitted several high quality iterations to a brief, and was committed to producing the final version. Good work!
Jamie O'Brien, Senior Research Associate at UCL
Calliope assisted me with one of our client's requests for usability assistance on an early prototype. We discussed a wide range of User-Centered Design techniques and processes to agree on a triangulation approach of usability testing, card sorting and the ISO standard SUS questionnaire. She was very open to feedback and her final report, recommendations and edited video were insightful and clearly addressed the issues with the prototype. I look forward to working with her again whether on an ongoing basis as this project matures or other projects that require a wide range of knowledge and skills.
Diarmad (Derm) McNally, Managing Director of the Interaction Design Studio
Calliope was an asset to our team providing valuable input into the digital design process. Her approach to web design was rooted in clear values of usability and she was a fount of pertinent reading materials regarding this and wider principles of web design. She also showed her ability in developing using Wordpress, html, css, PHP and MySql databases. When confronted with a problem she always showed a tenacity in trying to work her way around it while still delivering web builds that satisfied WC3 standards. I would recommend Calliope for a role where she is given space to input into the design and build phases of web design working as part of an experienced and dedicated team.
Nick Tuppen, Managing Director at Threshold Sports
Calliope produced top class graphic's for a theatre production advertisment. Everyone involved in the production were so keen to keep a copy of the advertisment !
Ian Maher, Jewellery Distribution
Calliope is detail-oriented and makes suggestions during client briefs if she sees potential to tweak an idea for improved effect. She also listens carefully and delivers to deadline, while allowing leeway for final touches to the work. I have no hesitation in recommending Calliope as a designer.
Caroline Carswell, Project Manager | Educational Advisor | Social Innovator
We worked together at 4pm while Calliope was doing her placement in Ireland. She was always updated with the current trends in web & design and always carried her copy of the .net magazine around the office, ready to share and show us new ways of working in our projects.
João Pedro Accorsi Ribeiro, Front-end Developer at VoucherCodes.co.uk
When I met Calliope working in Dublin she was really enthusiastic about design and photography. I hope she can keep this enthusiasm for the future and achieve the results she needs.
