Hello, I am Susan Patterson, I am a Freelance Product Designer previously I worked in the Netherlands with Artificial Industry where I worked on projects dealing with healthcare monitoring, special needs games platform and CX for call centres.
Before that I was with Learnovate where I designed for H2020 education research projects, pushing technology in education, such as a teacher-focused composer for pedagogy, an analytics dashboard for employees, and a Edu API marketplace.
I have a passion for projects that advocate for the social good in design. I personally enjoy working on projects that require both business as well as design thinking.
I am currently available with Toptal.com as a Senior Digital Designer, or if you’re interested in enquiring about a direct work opportunity, reach me via email or LinkedIn.

Darklight Digital Festival
One of the formative events in my career has been my involvement in the Darklight Festival. As one of the founders I helped Darklight become an exciting and community platform for the showcasing of indi work. Darklight would be called a maker festival today as it was for creatives by creatives. I was involved with all aspects of the running and organisation, till 2007 when I took a step back from the event organisation and moved to a more advisory role on the Board of Directors (while still helping out on the digital brand assets). The Darklight remit was in providing a screening platform for new work, art exhibitions, workshops, network opportunities, running a national and international touring programme plus producing a biannual symposium.
An amazing community, and an amazing journey!
