Hey, I’m Max. A london-based designer from New Zealand and lead user interface designer on MarketHub at Shell. I work on technical user interface design and design systems from a less-but-better approach.
Currently, I’m learning interface design; writing digital copy, information architecture, complex app design for specialised domains and what’s next in interface design.
Outside of work I enjoy the sauna, minimalism, Japanese design influence, Europe during summer (or winter), speaking too fast, unboxing things, speciality coffee at home, and sustainability.
Shell · eCommerce · Figma · 2020
I lead user interface design on Shell MarketHub 2.0 — an eCommerce portal allowing Shell partners to manage their day to day business with Shell including order management, account activities and reporting, and exploration of valuable training tools.
Global Traceability Platform
Shell · iOS · Figma · 2019
User interface design lead for an iOS app to work in a barcode-scanner gun to log movements of bottles, cartons and pallets of lubricants in warehouses of Spain, Germany and Hong Kong for one of Shell’s most well-known global key accounts.
Shell · iOS · Sketch · 2019
Field-based technical advisors from Shell often visit a customer’s site to help identify areas for improvement and potential cost savings by improving lubrication and maintenance practices. With the LubePro Global app, they capture structured data from these visits with an iPhone or iPad.
I led user interface design ensuring the technical advisors were able to capture the data they needed to without neglecting the conversation with the client as they toured a plant, for example.
Hexagon Design System
Hive · eCommerce · Sketch · 2018
I pitched, launched and actively contributed to a design system in Hive. When I joined for a contract in 2018, my onboarding was fragmented and involved looking at former Sketch files for design guidance. It became clear a system was needed, and I managed to work closely with the lead UI developer to get one off the ground.
Dorset Heart Clinic · WordPress · 2018
Working entirely remotely I redesigned the existing Dorset Heart Clinic to put a focus on the user and improve findability, discoverability, SEO, and optimisation. The website and accompanying social components now drive more organic leads to the clinic.
Emirates · Adobe Photoshop · 2017–2018
I art directed digital marketing campaigns within the strict guidelines of the Travelbag website and adhering to often-conflicting guidelines from airlines, hoteliers and partner travel agencies. Typically I’d supply imagery for the website and Facebook ads, and create landing pages which I hand-coded in HTML and CSS.
Letters to My Kids
Gap · Adobe Photoshop · 2016
Before kids headed back to school in late 2016 Gap launched ‘Letters to My Kids’ campaign so parents can let their children know how much they care and remind them just how capable they are. Simply write down some words of encouragement and admiration for your schoolchild, upload it to letterstomykids.gap.uk (gone now!) and Gap Kids posted out the first 500 letters received.
COD: MW Remastered
Activision · Adobe Photoshop · 2016
Working in Five by Five agency I was enlisted to help deliver thousands of displays ads for both pre-order and launch of Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered. We worked in a tightly-knit team from a 23GB PSD file of source artwork from Activision. Challenges included time constraints and the strict guidelines of PlayStation 4 via Sony.
