About


Hello!

My name is Andrew Hercules and I am a multidisciplinary product and service designer with extensive industry experience across a range of sectors. And yes, in case you are wondering, my last name really is Hercules!

Currently, I am a Lead User Experience Designer at the Money and Pensions Service (MaPS). As a key member of the multidisciplinary team assigned to support MoneyHelper, I offer full, end-to-end product and service design expertise. This includes facilitating discovery and design thinking workshops, conducting qualitative and quantitative user research, generating insights and artefacts, designing low- and high-fidelity solutions that respect technical and data constraints, and coordinating usability testing sessions with external commercial partners.

Prior to joining the MaPS design team, I was the Product Design & Strategy Lead for Open Targets and supported the development of open-source digital tools and services that empower researchers to identify and prioritise potential drug targets. I have also worked in design and digital strategy roles for various organisations in Canada and the United Kingdom. Additionally, I have delivered lectures and interactive workshops for conferences in the UK, Switzerland, Spain, and Brazil, and have also contributed content for online design courses.

Please feel free to check out my portfolio for selected samples of my work and read my blog for my thoughts on design. If you want to see additional samples of my work or to request a copy of my latest CV, please get in touch.

Cheers,

Andrew
