Sam Stephenson is a product designer and UX researcher. Helping startups build effective products through informed decisions.

Accepting new work. Got a project?



Hello! I’m a designer based in the UK. Working with startups to build humane, user-friendly products. I work across the design end of the product development process. Research, UX, UI, prototyping, user testing, branding, and front-end development (HTML/CSS, Javascript, and React).

Prior to going independent, I cofounded Sow – a startup building an easier way to buy groceries from your local farmer. Before that, I led field studies and experiments in education with Applied Cognitive Science in Laos, Zambia, Ethiopia and Nepal. Prior to that, I was part of the experience design team at NewDealDesign, in San Francisco. I graduated in Graphic Design from Falmouth, UK.

Talk to me about design, tech, travel, behavioral sciences, surfing, whitewater kayaking, hitchiking, or anything else that takes your fancy.
