Barry Briggs

Thanks for dropping by...

My name is Barry Briggs. I'm a Senior User Experience Architect with the BBC UX&D team.

I began my career with some of best regarded agencies in Leeds over 15 years ago, before moving to William Hill to help shape their hugely successful online betting website. I moved back to agency-land in 2008 when I joined the very wonderful Code Computerlove, where I worked for 4 years before moving to Amaze for a further 3 years. During my time as a UX practitioner I have been lucky enough to work on numerous high profile projects across a wide variety of sectors.

In addition to being a usability obsessive and a would-be evil scientist, I spend far too much time in my quest for the perfect quiff.
