I’m Tim Archer, an award-winning product designer, and former web designer and developer, based in Auckland, New Zealand.

Sep 2022 update: I'm currently looking for a remote or Auckland-based Product / UX / UI design role and am available to start immediately. Added the PlaceMakers case study.

Selected work

BetterSaver KiwiSaver finder refresh

Design and copy improvements to BetterSaver’s online KiwiSaver finder tool, which asks participants a series of simple questions then offers to switch them to a more suitable KiwiSaver fund.

BetterSaver brand & UI refresh

Conducted a visual audit to explore potential brand and UI crossover, then elevate both in this sophisticated and security-driven space. This included icons, other graphical brand elements, a fixed colour palette and a new typeface.

PlaceMakers Trade service design and app prototype

Designed the digitisation of services including an all-new mobile app for the trade division of hardware retailer PlaceMakers. This was a textbook design process addressing longstanding industry-wide problems that went far beyond basic e-commerce.

Powershop website

Powershop's website was designed with considerable UX testing in order to demystify pay-as-you-go power for consumers, and was responsive to encourage them to sign up on impulse from anywhere.
