Market Factory

FOREX Trading Platform, Corporate ID, Corporate Website
I served as Principal UX Design Strategist and Creative Director. I developed the company’s presentation layer and client facing UX assets for the company’s FOREX trading platform.


In addition, the company’s visual signature, and the single handed development of the company’s public facing web sites.

FOREX is the largest peer-to-peer market in the world – that no one knows about.
I designed a beautiful trading interface and the company’s visual signature.

About MarketFactory
MarketFactory is a company of engineers, software and financial markets engineers. MarketFactory’s code thoughtfully handles the messy differences between the 70+ trading venues in FX. We allow banks, brokers and funds to instantly trade on markets around the world with one touch.

Customers write to MarketFactory’s API and then sit back; we handle the cross-connects, network, hardware, software, latency monitoring and support as part of our software-as-a-service. We take care of the infrastructure so you can focus on trading.

FX is the largest peer-to-peer market in the world – that no one knows about.

Lightly regulated, venues can distribute prices in any way they wish, while banks and funds act like pseudo-ECNs which both consume and provide liquidity.

Unlike futures, there is no central credit hub with broker spokes; rather, a group of big banks provides credit intermediation to customers, which includes smaller banks, funds and “prime of prime” brokers.
