Wayne Paterson

Senior Experience Designer

Passionately creating the best possible experiences.

I am a user-centred Experience Design Specialist with more than 19 years’ experience in the design field, including over 3 years international exposure and over 5 years contracting and consulting experience.

I started my career in Graphic Design after completing a National Diploma in that field. I discovered a passion for combining Creative Design and Usability and moved from pure Graphic Design to UX and UI design. I am also a Certified Usability Analyst.

As an experience designer I work closely with clients, stakeholders, developers and business analysts, driving the CX, UX & UI design process throughout the projects’ life cycle.

I am passionate about creating the best user experience, and to that end, my greatest measurement of success is when my users are delighted with their experience.

What do my clients & colleagues have to say about me

Sarah Georgas
Design Lead at Standard Bank: Wealth team

I have really enjoyed working with Wayne over the past 6 months.

He has vast UX industry knowledge and experience. He’s always willing to go above and beyond to deliver the best quality work in the given time frame – doing his best work on a project that allows him to dive deep into the detail and truly understand the customer and their needs.

I enjoy that he challenges the team to think differently about their approach and to come up with a solution which pushes the boundary.

I would welcome the opportunity to work with him again.

Bill Faulkner
Head of Product & Systems Development at Best At Travel

I would highly recommend Wayne. He was a true professional from start to finish and gave us some great insights when he redesigned our in-house User Interface.

He designed and managed the whole project from start to finish and we are very pleased with the result.

Almero Oosthuizen
VP Business Development & Partnerships at Purple Group Ltd (EasyEquities)

Wayne is someone that can be counted on to get a job done right and on time. He has a very inventive and limitless imagination when it comes to creating a unique look for any collateral and web sites that is both functional and consumer friendly.

I would recommend Wayne Paterson to anyone looking to do UI or Web Design work that requires careful planning and creative thinking.

Ludwig de Bruin
Systems Analyst at Discovery Limited | M.Sc. (Artificial Intelligence)

Beyond a shadow of a doubt, Wayne is the best graphic designer and usability expert I have had the privilege of working with. He uses best-practice approaches in building high-quality cutting-edge Web solutions.

Having worked with him I have learnt a lot about Web design, implementation and usability, he is an invaluable asset to any team and an absolute pleasure to work with on any project.

Jae Subramoney
Senior Web Developer at Discovery

I've had the pleasure of working with Wayne for two and half years. And in that time I've found him to be hardworking and versatile when tackling and completing projects.

This commitment to getting the job done under tough pressures makes him a great and valuable team player. I've often found designers in general to be unwillingly to step beyond their boundaries, but Wayne breaks the mold and actively embraces industry developments over and above that of a creative. This dedicated attitude always leads to better quality work, more robust solutions and huge gains for the team and the company.

I can highly recommend Wayne.
