Helping healthcare startups understand their users and design digital products they'll want, use and love.


Hey there, I’m Marta! As a researcher as well as a UX designer, I’m able to turn research findings into an actionable design and product opportunities — striking the perfect balance between your business goals and user needs.

Using a mix of design and research methods I help healthcare startups answer three critical questions:

  • What to build?
  • How to build it?
  • How to improve what’s already built?

What to build?

You have an idea for a healthcare startup but you want to make sure you’re heading in the right direction before spending time and money on developing the solution.

I can help you understand your users, make sure you’re solving the right problem and refine your value proposition.

How to build it?

You have a clear vision and the confidence that it solves the right problem. Now you have to turn that vision into tangible product requirements – where do you start?

I can help you get from the idea to detailed design specification you can hand in to your developer.

How to improve what’s already built?

You’ve launched your app and you’re getting traction. In order to get where you are, you had to make choices and leave some things for later. Perhaps UX design and user testing didn’t get as much attention as they should have?

That’s totally fine – now it’s the time to step back and give it a proper thought.

New digital service for prescription management

The Co-op Group, the largest British co-operative society, wanted to test new digital service idea in prescription management area. Through iterative prototyping and regular user testing, I helped The Co-op validate their concept, reduce the risk of launching a new product and create insight-driven product strategy.

Marta’s insights and knowledge have enabled me to make informed product decisions quickly, always keeping the user in focus, and to make changes that make a real difference to how people use, and perceive, the product.

Marta’s ability to synthesise findings and develop insight useful for the design and product teams has been used as an example of best practice.

Behaviour Change Techniques in UX/UI Design

[Infographic] 6 Steps to Developing Healthcare Apps
