Head of Design and UX, Auto Trader 

Nikki is a Design & UX leader who has been working in digital since the beginning – consistently pushing boundaries by understanding the technology but not being dictated to by its limitations.

She has worked across a wide range of platforms and technologies and on numerous award winning products including Lumia Camera at Nokia/Microsoft, Tate website and handheld tour, Malcolm McLaren’s Casino of Authenticity & Karaoke art installation, as well as feature films including Mission Impossible. Early in her career Nikki worked on the seminal TV documentary Hyperland, written by Douglas Adams and her subsequent role at the BBC’s Interactive Television Unit cemented her understanding of the language of film and television, where she contributed to some of the UK’s first interactive projects.

Nikki is currently Head of Design at Auto Trader UK and an external examiner at the Royal College of Art. She combines an entrepreneurial streak from founding a successful digital design agency, to VP roles in the global corporates Nokia and Microsoft.
