General tinkerer, web tailor, user-centred design soldier and tall-ship sailor, Luke Chambers is one half of the founding partnership behind UX Mastery – an online resource of tips, tools and training for aspiring UX designers.
He learned his collaborative, visual thinking and storytelling skills while working in the film industry as a cinematographer, and has earned his keep as a designer on the web since 1999.
He came across user-centred design in 2004 when frustrated with the lack of responsible design and customer advocacy in corporate projects, and has since championed user experience design in small guerrilla web projects for not-for-profits through to large projects for clients like Penguin Books, CareFlight, Parks Victoria and the Australian Radio Network.
Throughout his day he listens, sketches, tells stories and explains to people the ‘why’ of the design that happens behind the visuals. He enjoys sailing tall ships and writing quantum fiction, lives in a tumbledown farmhouse in Melbourne’s inner north with his wife, and has three chooks.
