Product designer and UX developer.

👋 Hi, I'm Chris Sealey and I'm based in Queenstown, New Zealand. 51bits is the moniker for my design outfit, where I've been shipping small- and large-scale projects in the form of UI design and front-end web development for 17 years with discerning folks all over the world.

I've consulted to over 140 startups, agencies, entrepreneurs, and indie developers internationally, resulting in millions of people interacting with my work. My passions span health, technology, nature, and miniature painting.
