Inez Patel

Independent UX Consultant


Inez’s passion for UX was instilled in her as she completed her Honours degree at the University of Cape Town in Media Theory and Practice.

Since then she worked at Liquorice in Cape Town, lectured at the University of Stellenbosch and then fully entrenched herself into corporate UX at EOH Microsoft Coastal, focusing on the finance and investment industries. Inez moved to Johannesburg in 2017 where she worked as a UX designer for Freethinking Business Consultants, once again focusing on the finance industries.

Feeling unchallenged by corporate and finance, Inez is now an independent UX designer, who has discovered her passion for communities and non-profit organisations and aims to do work that fulfils these values. She is the Director of Ladies that UX Johannesburg, Co-organiser for The Goodwork Society and an Organisation designer for The Tutroom Foundation.
