We'd like to welcome Dan to our ever growing team. Dan is our new Senior UX/UI Designer.

Now that he has settled in I can ask the important questions...

Hey Dan, how are you finding life at Climb so far?

It’s class… I’ve really enjoyed working with the team, who are clearly passionate about what they do. There’s a great balance of working hard while still finding time to have a laugh and bit of banter.

Topper! It’s great to have you on board. What are you passionate about, other than design of course?

Thanks. At the risk of sounding like a stereotypical ‘designer’ I love bikes, books, beers and really good coffee. And if the missus is reading this, I should mention that I’m passionate about spending time with the wife and kids…

Ah we all love a good beer but what’s your favourite food?

Ah man, this is tough! It’s like asking which is your favourite child… Pizza, it covers all the major food groups.

If you could have one superpower what would it be and why?

Super Speed! Being able to respond to problems with instant solutions would be pretty cool and getting from A to B in super-lightning-quick time has it’s benefits.

That would be handy! What websites do you find yourself on most often?

Other than google? www.designobserver.com always has good content and sites like uimovement.com and Instagram are great for inspiration.

A controversial one now. In a fight to the death, who would be victorious between Windows, Linux and MacOS?

MacOS kicks ass! Obviously, a tad bias as I’m an iMac fan-boy, I’ve never used Linux but I’m still putting it ahead of windows…

Ooh gloves are off now, but I guess this is a debate that’ll never be settled.

We go through a lot of coffee in the office and it’s a love of yours but how do you take it?

Black.

Do you have any party tricks?

I can make beer disappear…

What is your favourite TV boxset of all time?

Ooof! another tough one! I loved The Wire and Breaking Bad was class but my all-time-favourite has to The Sopranos. Brilliantly written with amazing characters, absolute quality from the opening theme to the final episode.

Classic. Well, I’ll let you get back to colouring in. Stay in-between the lines.

Thanks Dan
