Eriol Fox

Eriol has been working as a designer for 10+ years working in for-profits and then NGO's and open-source software organisations, working on complex problems like sustainable food systems, peace-building and crisis response technology. Eriol now works at Simply Secure on design, research, open-source and technology projects.

Eriol is a part-time funded PhD researcher at Newcastle University's Open Lab looking at how designers participate in humanitarian and human rights focussed open-source software projects.

Kelsey’s design practice is informed by a background in art, business, and teaching, as well as her time living in Kenya, Korea, Spain, and now Germany. Since starting at Simply Secure in 2020, Kelsey has drawn on these experiences to inform her work exploring institutional trust with data collection, simplifying digital security practices, and serving diverse communities through participatory user research. Kelsey’s toolkit as a UX designer encompasses information architecture, wireframing, workshop facilitation, need-finding research, usability testing, interactive prototyping, and user interface design. Her work has ranged from browser extensions protecting against phishing to tools that help human rights defenders safeguard their security. In her time with Simply Secure, she has worked with organizations such as Amnesty International and Mozilla. A native of Michigan, she has called Berlin home since 2018. They are also part of the core teams at Open Source Design (http://opensourcedesign.net/) and Human Rights Centred Design working group (https://hrcd.pubpub.org/) and Sustain UX & Design working group (https://sustainoss.org/working-groups/design-and-ux/) and help hosts podcast about open source and design (https://sosdesign.sustainoss.org/)

Eriol is a non-binary, queer person who uses they/them pronouns.
