I love working with inspiring people looking to disrupt industries and improve experiences.

I’m Paul Mackenzie, a 32 year old designer currently residing in Leeds, UK.

Over the years I have curated a passion for clear User Interface design, enjoyable User Experiences, and clean modern Front-End development.

I’ve worked with a variety of startups, both in the UK and USA. Working closely with teams to help realise their vision.

“Paul is absolutely amazing at turning ideas and problems into effective solutions. His designs are elegantly simple. Not only does he make things look beautiful, but he primarily makes things that are easy to understand, simple to use, and effective at helping customers feel successful.”
Thomas Knoll Primeloop / 500 Startups

I do what I do because I love it, the fact that I get to work with amazing people on awesome products is just a bonus.

For nearly 10 years I've harbored a love for designing simple, clean and enjoyable interfaces.

I’ve had experience working in a large scale agency, a small startup in the North of England, and multiple distributed teams throughout the world.

In 2015 I was fortunate enough to be part of the team at Primeloop (acquired) that was accepted to 500 Startups.

I’ve worked with companies that are trying to disrupt many industries including: construction, capital investment, advertising, marketing, finance, and education.

I’ve mostly enjoyed working with small/medium startup companies looking to make a difference to a particular market or industry.


I was part of the wonderful team at Primeloop for a little over 7 months. During my stay the product went through several pivots.

Each time I was required to re-think the User Interface, and User Experience, to fit the new problems that were being solved.

Primeloop was successfully acquired in December 2015.


I was hired by ReContext to help create concepts for their Artificial Intelligence Ad software.

Using a conceptual MVP as a baseline, I was able to create a more robust and polished interface to further improve on an already proven idea.

I later continued to support ReContext by providing the Front-End resources required to build the final product.


I worked with Kapuno during an early re-design of an existing product.

I provided both high fidelity wireframes, and more polished designs (including style guides).

Kapuno were able to take these concepts, which not only helped craft the direction of the product, but were used to successfully raise a round of funding.

Tiny Themes.

Currently in development, TinyThem.es will be the place for the numerous Tumblr themes that I have designed.

Clocking up over 6000+ installs combined, I am looking to have a place to both showcase and support them.

You can check out my themes over on Tumblr.

Want to discuss working together? Let's do that!

I am always on the lookout for opportunities to work with talented, inspiring teams and individuals.

So…if you like my work, and want to strike up a relationship to help create something great, don’t hesitate to send me an email, and we’ll work something out!
