Hamish Taplin is an interaction designer and developer from Cardiff focused on user–centered design.

What I do

UI design

Specialising in UI design, I turn complex ideas into simple interfaces that human beings can actually use. Whether it's creating mockups in Figma/Sketch or delivering working code ready for production.


With over fifteen years of experience as a front-end developer, from the days of Shockwave and Flash through to jQuery and now React, I build interfaces that are as delightful as they are performant, scalable and accessible.

Prototyping & user testing

I believe in an evidence-based approach to designing and building products. Creating prototypes and testing with real users catches critical usability problems early on, ensuring a product is in the best shape possible.

Design systems

Designs that scale with a growing business are crucial. By taking a systematic approach to design, combined with scalable UI code, a design system helps the product grow without getting in the way.
