Ricky Synnot

Hello, Im Ricky Synnot, a senior product designer at realestate.com.au. Located in Melbourne, Australia.

Re-imagining home buying through world class product design.

I lead a team of designers at realestate.com.au who fiercely push the boundaries of our cross disciplinary, inclusive product design practice.

Over four years I’ve uplifted all core products and systems, across native and web platforms. Highlights include bringing a vision to life, transitioning a billion-hits-a-month site into a highly performant responsive web app, and producing our global UI design system.

Currently leading the design of a world first integrated property finance experience, soon to be released.

14 years on the tools 🎨

From rock posters to poster-child of Australia’s tech industry, I’ve worked with a vast array of clients. Time engaged with big name brands and small business startups has taught valuable lessons, refined my skill set, and built cumulative insight.

My teams and I have won a few 🏆 too, including a Webby Honouree, Australian App Design award, and a Mobile Design award.

Led product design at LifeLounge.

I loved the two-and-a-half years I spent at LifeLounge agency, working across client and in-house briefs. I led the design, delivery and national rollout of Everguide, a consumer facing event guide with industry facing paid event listing service.

Long time friend of brands you trust.

I ❤️ working with Made group, from brand & POS strategy, the group website, to fun responsive FMCG product sites.

Freelance and agency clients include Latrobe Uni, Medibank, Crown, The Wiggles, Disney, Adelaide Airport and the Australian Government.
