profile picture of Lauren Day in black and white

I am a UX Designer at Each&Other, an award winning strategic design firm based in Dublin. I have a varied background from fine art, marketing, visual design, user experience and brand strategy. This has given me a unique perspective, leading me to be investigative and conceptual in my approach.

Throughout my career I’m grateful to have worked with some amazing brands including Apple, Capri-Sun, Strauss, BNP Paribas, Deposify, Betconnect, Lir and Chopped.

My Masters degree explores more sustainable ways to motivate towards pro-environmental behaviour through a considered, design-led approach to gamification and persuasive design
