Who am I?

Hey there, I'm Amy Rogers.

I've been working as a product designer for nearly a decade, both in established tech companies and smaller agencies. In 2020 I started freelancing so I could learn more about running my own business.

Over the years I've found that I love being a generalist. My broad skillset means I get to do something different every day, and help people that otherwise wouldn't know where to start.

So that's why I created Gubbins; a one-stop shop for people who need some help from a creative problem solver like me!

Why did you choose the word gubbins?

Gubbins is a British slang word. It means assorted stuff, a collection of things, bits and bobs.

I use the word gubbins often to describe... well, anything. It's a nice comfortable word. It's good at conveying what I mean, even if it's vague and sounds a bit silly.

It also fits my style of work pretty well. One day I'll be creating new brand guidelines. The next I'll be sorting out someone's Notion workspace. And then I'll be 3D modelling earrings for an upcoming conference. It's a bit all-over-the-place, but it's all helpful to the right people.

My Values

What is it like to work with me?

I solve problems.

I'll take the time to understand your problems before making anything. Design without direction is just decoration.

I am adaptable.

Smaller teams are flexible, and so am I. We can find ways of working that suit both of our schedules.

I am creative.

My skillset means I can spot answers where others can't. I love trying out new things and tackling unique challenges.

I am your friend!

Working with like-minded folks makes me happy. I want to support people who are on the same wavelength as me.

Let's work together.

I'd love to talk to you if:

  • You're a small business or solo worker

  • You love what you're working on

  • You're looking to polish things up but don't know where to start

Feel free to reach out if you think we could be a good fit!
