Liam Fiddler

I help organisations engineer and build their next digital product or service.

I'm Liam, a digital designer / developer with over ten years experience engineering, building, and releasing digital products. I've worked with a wide variety of organisations — from small startups to established, multi-national businesses.

The first issue of the Animal Studies Journal

Animal Studies Journal

In 2012 I was invited to help design and publish the first issue of the Animal Studies Journal, a fully-refereed (double-blind peer reviewed) journal highlighting current research in human-animal studies. More recent issues have moved to a digital format and I'm proud to continue my involvement with the publication to this day.

Operating the Tactilis Mensa

Tactilis Mensa

A prototype for an alternative art collection browsing system. In order to fulfil the practical component of a BCA Honours course I built a table-sized touch screen device (using a projector, a webcam, a low-power PC, lots of MDF, and infrared light), then designed a prototype interface for navigating the UoW Art Collection. This work was on display as part of the Digital Natives art exhibition .

Coffee? Beer?

I'd love to catch up and chat about what digital prototyping means to you, which comic superhero is due for a good movie adaptation (spoiler; it's Nightwing), the future of virtual reality, or anything else that takes your fancy!
