I'm Martin Whittaker. Originally from Manchester, UK. Currently based in Hamburg, Germany working as Senior UI/UX Designer at About You.


For over 10 years I have been working as a designer in print, web and software development. The bulk of my work has mainly been within the e-commerce industry, where I worked for Fluid Digital for 9 years, initially as a designer then as Design Lead. While there I helped to build the company from a small team of 4 to over 20 employees, becoming one of the most successful e-commerce specialists in the UK.

I have had the privilege of working with businesses all over the world from USA to Japan. In both 2015 and 2016, I was thrilled to be Lead Designer on two Northern Digital Award winning projects for ‘Best e-Commerce Website’.

In 2017 I moved to Fukuoka, Japan to work as Design Lead for Qurate, a marketing and social platform startup.
