Liam Forsyth

Senior Product Designer

Tell us about yourself!

I am a proud Scot who always knew I’d work in the design industry. As a kid I would always draw interfaces for computer games, build Point and Click adventures in Microsoft FrontPage and in fairness that hasn’t changed too much since then!

I have a massive love of coffee, and luckily I live close to some lovely local coffee shops that give me a chance to enjoy the lovely Scottish weather during the day.

To have any resemblance of fitness in my life I have a 3 year old Springer Spaniel that keeps me from staring at a computer screen all day! 

What’s your role at Legl? 

In May of 2023, I joined as a Senior Product Designer. I work alongside product managers and product engineers to build solutions to tackle problems that our users face. 

A large part of this is understanding the problem we are looking to solve, and this starts with talking directly with our users. 

These key findings are brought into our team’s ideation sessions, which I can then translate into mockups and prototypes. These visuals allow us to start validating our solution as soon as we can, both within our team and with our users. This feedback helps me refine our concept further, ensuring the experience we are delivering solves the problems we identified, in a beautiful and easy to use way. 

What made you join Legl? 

I love products that set out to solve important problems that people face. In the interview process I learnt so much about how technology can play an important role in the legal industry, and how Legl was spearheading this. Of course I wanted to be part of that journey! 

It also has to be said that everyone at Legl is so passionate, and I got a taste of that while I was interviewing. It is very infectious and another reason why I wanted to be working with them.

What have been the most enjoyable aspects of your life at Legl? 

Legl is such a collaborative place to work, full of personality. Everyone is so open and willing to share ideas, insights, feedback, and to me this helps us all grow as both professionals and as individuals. I have made such strong friendships with the people I work alongside, and that is just the cherry on the cake.

What advice would you give anyone looking to follow in your footsteps? 

Allow yourself to try new things for the sheer fun of it. I have grown skills as a designer in part by experimenting with things I was curious about, and not because I felt I needed that skill to fit in with the industry. 

That’s why collaboration can be so important and rewarding - we learn new things from each other and can celebrate what makes us all unique.
