originally went to art college to study fine art and graphic design, and became a web designer around 2000.
I was freelance for myself for a few years and now work as a contractor with Digital agencies in London.
I build websites using handcoded semantic (X)Html, CSS, Html5 and CSS3 (W3C / WAI), improving accessibility, naming conventions and workflow as I go. Each project will dictate a different strategy but in general I will aim to use Html5 and CSS3 wherever I can.
I believe in responsive design and progressive enhancement, and think that a mobile-first design strategy is increasingly relevant.
I’m quite comfortable working with JQuery at a basic level, which includes implementing and configuring any plugins needed, and I’m using SASS/LESS and Compass for most projects.
I also work with PHP and MySQL and have a team of awesome people that I trust to produce excellent code when I project manage.
I can design as well as build and offer a full website service including backend and marketing integration.
User Experience matters to me, and together we can work to make online content more sophisticated and enjoyable.
I don’t work with companies that promote gambling 🙂
