I’m currently serving as Strong’s Chief Design Officer where I’m responsible for all design, including the look and feel of the user interface, branding, new ideas and future initiatives. My current focus is on our Android app where I’m helping to apply our design language that we’ve built for our next major releas for iOS—Strong 5.
Outside of my design responsibilities, I help maintain our
StyleHelper.swift file that enables our iOS engineers to easily implement our style guide. I’m also working on an internal admin tool and Strong for web using Mongo, Express, Vue, and Node.
I built product features with the React framework for UI implementation, Redux to control data flow, and a mixture of back-end technologies such as Mongo, PHP, and Python.

Spence—an app for iOS—is a financial product that serves a singular purpose. When we purchase an item that holds a percentage of its use for work purposes, we can claim a tax deduction here in the U.K. The deduction in tax is money that we save and as such, that saving is tied directly to the item we have bought. While the full cost of the item will effectively come out of our own pocket—or business’ pocket—at the time of purchase, we know that because of our tax deduction, the items true cost to us is something different.
Through an algorithm that I designed within Apple’s Numbers software, Spence applies that saving calculation and gives you an immediate cost of the tax-deductible item.
Knowing how much I save on tax-deductible items is crucial in making an informed business purchase. It also helps me plan both my business and personal finances more effectively.
