Joshua Newton

Product Designer

London

I’m a multidisciplinary and adaptable designer that helps startups and companies conceptualise, build and deliver value in their products for their customers. My work is a process of researching, defining and prioritising user needs through complex UX methodology, prototyping, usability testing and validation. I’ve been lucky enough for my work to span from core banking products to blockchain prototypes, international high fashion concepts, and established smart home IOT apps. I have a driven curiosity for studying how philosophy, psychology and the habits that operate us play a role in our lives and society. I’m motivated to make the world a better place through meaningful and ethical design decisions. I’m also a travel photographer, with over 42 million views online, you may have seen some of my work on Unsplash.
