Odette & Stu co-founded Super User Studio in 2008.
Stu Collett Partner, Product & Design Strategy
Stu started his design career 20 years ago and since then he has gained experience in a very broad range of design disciplines. Stu has worked on cutting-edge products, including an early AI game called Jamie Kane for the BBC which won a D&AD award. After working in various London agencies, Stu decided to set-up his own UX consultancy at a time when there were only a handful of agencies in the UK that offered this approach. As Design Director at SUS, he especially enjoys service design and implementing design systems for enterprise SaaS solutions. He also started UX Jobs board in 2013 in order to connect fellow UX professionals with great opportunities.
Odette Colyer Partner, Experience & Research Strategy Odette started her digital career 20 years ago as an online journalist and then producer in news and programming.

She went on to head-up a large production team at a design agency in Spain, before returning to the UK to co-found Super User Studio. As Director of Research & Product Strategy at SUS, Odette has been able to support the transformation of many businesses and their products for organisations such as CEB, Thomsons Online Benefits, Channel 4, Alstom, Zynstra and Apteco.
Introducing the SUS Associate Network
The team at Super User Studio is small, diverse, highly experienced and, you might say, perfectly formed. Like a film crew, we build expert teams for our clients, tailored to the needs of their project. This is when we use the SUS Associate Network, an extension of our internal team, with whom we've worked on many projects over the past 10 years. If you're interested in joining our team, please get in touch.
