About Paavan He/him

I’m a designer and design educator. I help a variety of companies create great user experiences for their digital products by combining research with beautiful interface design. And I teach new designers how to do the same.

  • I’m currently the design lead at Ffern, a luxury, small-batch, natural perfume company that ships seasonal fragrances directly to members on their ledger.
  • In May 2023, I was included in the BIMA 100 as a Rising Star. The BIMA 100 is an annual list of the top 100 most influential people in UK Digital and Tech.
  • I teach new designers how to become better at UX & UI, with a focus on Figma, both on YouTube and at Experience Haus, a hands-on product and design training provider.
  • Before Ffern, I was a senior digital product designer at AND Digital, an award-winning digital consultancy.
  • I used to perform magic professionally. I still do, but I used to, too.
  • My first degree was a joint Masters in Computer Science and Philosophy at the University of Oxford. I recently completed a postgraduate diploma in Art History at the Open University.
  • Some of my interests are: illustration, gardening, magic, art, 3d printing, startup culture and writing. I regularly write about these topics and more; you can read my writing here.
