Hi there, it's nice to meet you.
I’m Geri, a UI & UX designer from London.
I've designed digital products for the past 17 years. I've worked mainly in-house for big banks; UBS, Bank of America, Lloyds Banking Group (on brands Lloyds, Halifax, Bank of Scotland and MBNA), with a few fintechs and startups in between.
Designing financial products is a curious fit. I don't wear a suit and I'm not that hot on spreadsheets. What gets me excited is creating products that positively affect people's lives. Over the years I've met a lot of humans and listened to their problems. I've designed tools and services to help these folks improve their financial health.
I've recently joined Checkout.com as a Principal Product Designer, to build out a new design system.
These days I’m more interested in a product that is inclusive than a product that looks pretty. My work wouldn't get any likes on Dribbble. But I hope it's helping our customers to make informed financial choices and hopefully in doing so, sleep a little sounder at night.
Be kind and take care of each other ♥️

About this site
- I've enjoyed building and maintaining this little site over the years. It's just straight up HTML/CSS/JS off a Bootstrap grid. A basic understanding front-end code has made me a better designer.
- Typefaces are P22 Underground and Sailec. Please pay for fonts! They take a long time to make.
