Hello.
I'm Rob,
a designer with over 20 years of professional experience who likes to write Sci-Fi on the side.

I help build products that engage and delight people and have a broad design skill-set ranging from visual design, interaction design and user research. I work in a data-informed and creatively driven way and focus on desired outcomes to solve real-world problems.

My Experience

Trainline

Head of Design

2016 - 2020 / Reporting to CPO

Trainline is the world’s leading independent digital rail platform, selling tickets on behalf of over 270 rail and coach companies across 45 countries.

I joined Trainline to build a world-class design team to work cross-functionally with product and engineering to deliver on our mission to provide smarter journeys to our customers. Reporting to the CPO and working with product and engineering leadership, I grew the team from 3 to 20+ and led design through a rebrand, a re-platforming, European expansion, and eventually an IPO.

Trainline today is the most downloaded travel app in the UK and regularly tops the charts in both the “Travel”​ and “Transportation”​ categories on iOS and Android.

Hailo

Head of Product Design

2011 - 2016 / Reporting to CPO

I joined Hailo as employee number 3, where my primary responsibility was to design the Hailo passenger and driver products while growing and leading the product design team. I reported to the CPO and oversaw the design of all our products.
