Built for humans
Powerful hero woman



We design & build stuff that humans find effortless to use.

//ABOUT built for humans

My name is Carl Lister and I’m Director at Built for humans based in the United Kingdom.

After nearly 10 years working for others in the advertising and digital creative industry, I was frustrated with the lack of focus on creating products for the humans that use them. Instead, focusing on building things to satisfy our own and the clients egos.

I started a business (initially trading under my own name, you can see my consultation site here ) before creating Built for humans - which in its own way is the manifestation of my own ethos.


Designing your business for humans.

Carl worked with us on a project after coming highly recommended. He provided training and guidance on using the mailchimp platform following audience optimisation and creation of a branded template. Carl was super professional at every stage of this project, from providing us with a quote right through to sign off.I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Carl and hope to work together again in the future.
