Hey, I'm Peter Finlan! A (UX/UI) Product Designer & Front End Developer from Sydney, Australia. By day, you'll find me collaborating with the insanely talented folk @Canva as Senior Product Designer, creating user centric, engaging and innovative products through user research, testing and data science.
By night, you can find me actively contributing to our beloved design & development community through free design resources, articles and by mentoring other designers - all for the love of it. I'm also a proficient front-end developer, regularly contributing free exclusive code nuggets and themes @Codrops. Somewhere in between all of that, I'm a husband, father and surfer who needs to get in the water more.
Crafting memorable, emotive and engaging experiences for the web, and native iOS/Android apps through research, testing and data science.
Designing a memerable experience is perfecting how it will react in the hands of the user. Subtle interactions and microinteractions are what separates mediocre and amazing apps.
Hand coding my web apps for interactive prototyping, full scale websites and components, using the latest FE web technologies focusing on HTML5, CSS3, jQuery.
I’ve been lucky enough to have worked as a UX/UI designer alongisde some amazing teams and clients both within Australia and Internationally. Here’s a snippet of my work. This is only a fraction of what I'm proud of, a more regularly updated collection of work and in depth case studies are available over on my Dribbble portfolio.
(UX/UI Design & Front-End Development projects)
I get a buzz out of designing and developing freebies for the design community and beyond. It's a way of giving back to a community that I've learnt so much from. Open source software is an outlet for connecting with awesome people, and sharing great ideas as well as collaborating on and improving on great products. Open Source 4 Life!
