Notes from a content designer

Making the case for simplicity and inclusion, one word at a time

Hi, I'm Amy. I'm a content designer working at the Government Digital Service on the GOV.‌UK Design System.

Before that, 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.

I also make food and take photographs of it.
