Folk Labs co-founder
His enthusiasm for creating engaging user experiences combines technical excellence and a user-centred creative approach. He is passionate about supporting local communities, non-profits, charities and the social enterprise sector with appropriate, high quality digital technology and genuinely excellent brand design.
For many years Chris worked for IPPF – a global sexual health NGO during which he contributed to the design and development of large-scale digital projects, researching and developing enterprise-level information architectures. This work on both internal extranets and public-facing sites for a global organisation with over 150 local affiliates offered an opportunity to gain deep insights into the challenges presented by federated charities and distributed networks, particularly to large-scale digital knowledge hub projects.
Additionally, working alongside monitoring and evaluation colleagues, he developed innovative approaches to annual reporting documentation using data visualisations and was also involved in developing many accreditation, quality assurance and auditing toolkits to support the organisation’s affiliates.
