What they said

I had a blast working with Dan while he was at Clarks. He delivered great quality work and brought together a number of key stakeholders to ensure the process went smoothly.

Dan brought a wealth of usability research methods, prototyping and ideation techniques that positively showcased the value of UX and was instrumental in some of our latest deployments and A/B tests which have shown extremely positive results. I hope Dan comes back to work at Clarks one day, but until then he'd be an asset to any team.
