Raised in Cumbria. Made in Manchester.

My name is Paul Welsh (also known as Spacedawwwg to the Internet). I'm Director of Nonbreakingspace, a small digital agency specialising in interaction design and UI development, based in Manchester, UK. I've been designing and developing digital solutions since 2005.

As a hands-on Director, I oversee all aspects of design and development within the company. From in-house identity and interaction design consultancy to coding standards and UI builds. Working directly with clients allows me to understand their goals and user requirements, helping them to deliver a successful project.

I work best when armed with a pencil and paper, sketching out UI and interactions to visually articulate my ideas quickly. I find this works well with clients as they can understand my direction and thinking early on.

Taking my ideas from sketches to the browser is what I love best. HTML, CSS and Javascript have been the major weapons in my arsenal, but I like to dabble with other technologies when an opportunity arises. My understanding of these technologies allows me to work with clients in designing more beautiful, usable and effective solutions that people will enjoy using.

I feel lucky that my work allows me to surround myself with creative, intelligent and hard working individuals. Over the years I have had the pleasure of working with some great brands and some wonderful people that include: Universal Studios Orlando, PerkinElmer, Cambridge Assessment, Lazard, Lloyd's Register, Butlins, Ricoh, BT, RNCM, YARA, RSPB, Liverpool Hope University, Warner Leisure, Regus, Royal Caribbean International, The Premex Group, Bermans Specialist Lawyers, Chetham's School of Music, BDA.
