Hi, I’m Ciaran. I offer a mix of research, strategy and practical support services to brands, and agencies, that are transforming websites, content and digital customer experience.

Case studies

Examples of my work. L-R: Chalkboard from a mapping workshop, user-testing mobile sites and a website audit document

How I help: I ensure that digital projects succeed. I identify and research the necessary evidence, uncover and communicate actionable insights, and help with strategy and production where appropriate. Digital projects (and agency pitches) are more likely to be successful when they’re based on evidence and user-need.

About me: I’m a digital consultant with 16 years experience as a user researcher, seo analyst, content strategist, digital strategist, advertising planner, digital manager, product manager and web-build project manager. I also hire and lead production teams. I was also a BBC online journalist and senior digital producer.

Location: London UK and have worked worldwide, often remotely.
