A user experience, creative direction and digital strategy practice

Freelance web designer in Leicester

With over eight years industry experience, Jon Dodd has worked with a range of clients, from government bodies to luxury brands, in the UK, United States and Australia, to create user-centred, accessible and end-to-end web experiences.

Formerly Creative Director at the award winning digital studio Un.titled, Jon Dodd has a passion for making digital systems that work for organisations and users alike. With a spread of experience, he’s worked as the UX Lead for a government software company and designer for music and sports magazines, as well as agencies and studios.

Why Alloneword? Since starting gainful employment (and therefore having to be referred to as something more professional than ‘Doddie’) people have tended to enjoy the phonetics of ‘Jon’ and ‘Dodd’ smushed together, hence Jon Dodd is Alloneword.

Shopify design in Leicester
Katie-Ella

An approachable minimal aesthetic is employed for children's clothing brand Katie-Ella, letting the vibrant colours and finish of the clothes sing for themselves. Typography is carefully considered and weighted to assist the brand in showing its personal and informal tone. Fully responsive and designed mobile first, 60% of traffic is from mobile alone, and it gives users a seamless purchasing experience regardless of device.

With a focus of smoothing the UX and bringing subtle interactions into play, the new site is cutting edge but without losing traditional craftmanship, just like the clothes themselves.

“I was quite scared at the prospect of having my own shop, but I was walked through Shopify and was selling online in no time at all. Alloneword completely got my brand and the look and feel I wanted to go for. Really chuffed with the end result!”
