Darren joins Drayson Technologies following a 7-year tenure running his own app design development studio, where he headed up the creative output, helping clients realise their ideas, from concept to wireframes / UX, UI design, branding, and the web.
During that time, clients included brands such as Scalextric, Rolls-Royce, AVON, Wolfgang Puck, Virgin, Electronic Arts, Haynes Publishing, EVO Magazine & Audi. He is extremely proud of what was achieved, a number of 1 million+ downloaded, award-winning apps, 5-star reviews, recognition from Apple and for the record, a very tasty steak cooked by Wolfgang Puck himself at his annual company BBQ in Las Vegas!
Prior to starting his own company, Darren cut his teeth in the online advertising industry, working for a start-up in Windsor, completely rebranding the company before it was acquired by FOX. During this time, he started to experiment with designing apps on the newly released iPhone.
Darren studied Graphic Design and Communication at the University for the Creative Arts and developed a keen interest in the new (at the time) field of web design. This was followed by 10 years working with a variety of companies in Graphic Design, Web & Branding.
The opportunity to push himself creatively in a new industry is something he's looking forward to and is pleased to be joining the team; working together to improve the user experience of both existing and future products.
Darren lives in Maidenhead with his wife and Lego obsessed 7yr old son.
