Jacob Coy

24 - Digital Designer - Southampton

A brief introduction

Hey there! I am a digital designer from the South Coast of England. During the day I currently work for Kingdom London based out of Shoreditch.

I like to think of myself as a well rounded designer with alot to learn, I have a huge passion for digital mediums and a forward thinking attitude to design. I'm often trying out the latest prototyping tool or looking to learn my next programming language. Straddling the line between designer and developer I like to get stuck in with any and all tasks of a project. This can lead from ideation and design to testing and development.
