I'm Amy. I'm a content design and design systems consultant, making the case for simplicity and inclusion in the face of complexity.

Right now, I'm working on design systems at Springer Nature.

I've worked as product owner for design systems at BT and Babylon Health and I spent 3 years at the Government Digital Service as content lead for the GOV.‌UK Design System.

Prior to GDS, I worked at Which? writing about everything from compost to conveyancing.

I care about making services accessible and inclusive, starting with the basics – the words we use to talk about them.
