Interface design for digital services.

LHV is the portfolio of Adam Little, an independent designer whose work focuses on the experiences that people have with digital products and services. Working internationally, Adam collaborates with mission-driven organizations that are addressing people's everyday needs through meaningful applications of technology.

I collaborate with entrepreneurs, agencies and in-house design teams to craft people-friendly products and services.
