Hi, I’m Luke Farrugia, a Melbourne-based UX/UI designer. I specialise in creating seamless experiences while crafting usable and sleek interfaces.

Digital systems such as websites and web applications are becoming progressively more sophisticated as technologies advance. As a UX/UI designer, I need to adapt to these advancements, always ensuring that my skills and knowledge are on point. I study and evaluate how users feel about a system, focusing specifically on ease of use, user perception and efficiency. To deliver a successful project, both the user experience (UX) and the user interface (UI) need to be embraced as a whole. While information gathering and analysis is an essential component, having the ability to create a usable UI maximises the outcome. Throughout my process, I take full advantage of both UX and UI principals, allowing me to identify and solve complex problems.

Throughout my career, I have worked with many small to medium-sized agencies as a UX/UI designer, while also working as a freelancer. I have had the opportunity to work on exciting and challenging projects, that have ranged from promotional to eCommerce websites, web applications and digital product design.

While working with these agencies, I have had the privilege of collaborating with some incredibly talented creatives across multiple disciplines, allowing me to deepen my knowledge of design, marketing, project/product management and development. Collaboration is a fundamental component in my career development and is crucial in delivering a successful project.

Currently, I work at Envato, leading the UI design on the Envato Elements product.

I completed a Bachelor of Communication Design at The University of Swinburne (Honours). My degree helped me gain a solid foundation in design principles, and this is where my passion for problem-solving through design began. I enjoyed creating new and exciting concepts to challenge briefs, always welcoming constructive feedback so as to hone my conceptual and technical skills.

This passion drove me to earn an industry-based learning (IBL) year. Which gave me the opportunity to experience working with two separate agencies, exposing me to digital design and allowing me to become the confident UX/UI designer I am today.
