I am an experienced*, professional, multidisciplinary designer / developer with a passion for digital and a thorough understanding of UI and UX principles, front end digital design and back end development.
I believe passionately in providing top quality online experiences and delivering solutions which meet the needs of both businesses and consumers alike. A business must not only consider the quality of the work but the quality of the people doing the work. When addressing your website and branding needs you must find the best people to work with. And this is were I come in.
I have a proven track record in conceiving and implementing online solutions, ranging from mobile and tablet friendly responsive websites and email templates to fully-fledged CMS driven ecommerce systems.
My experience in both front and back end development allows me to understand how they both work together to create the best possible results. I am at ease with getting my hands dirty with either role, although my preference does lean towards front end digital design. My core skills are PHP, Wordpress, jQuery, HTML5 and CSS with the usual Illustrator, Fireworks, Photoshop, Dreamweaver thrown in for good measure. I work on macintosh OSX for all design and development work.
Bespoke Wordpress solutions are my speciality.
My attention to detail is second to none. Outside of work, I love going to the gym. I apply the same hardwork and effort that I do when I work out as I do when I am creating websites. Everything has to be perfect with maximum effort applied - there is no room for fluffiness! I strongly believe than you only get out what you put in and if a job is worth doing, its to be done right.
...life, the universe and everything
Im a big 'Python and Hitchhikers fan (who isnt?). No, I dont mean snakes or flagging lifts on the highway, but the sketch comedy by John Cleese, Michael Palin et al and the comedy science fiction series by Douglas Adams. Silly walks are cool. Babel fish are even cooler. Such brilliant, silly humour and two perfect ways to wind down after a long day at work :)
