Lead UI/UX Designer @ Zapp Mobile Payments

With Zapp’s Pay by Bank app solution, consumers can securely pay retailers using their mobile banking apps. I’ve been designing all the payment flows, covering every use case from an online order to a instore purchase or an NFC point of sale, making sure Zapp’s journey remains consistent and covering every edge case inherent to a solution with such complexity. Zapp has given me a wealth of experience and knowledge of electronic payments and knowledge of the UK payment systems. I’m also responsible to develop all the UX documents to be followed by the banks, retailers and billers when integrating Zapp’s solution as well as designing the new Zapp’s demo apps.
