Skills & Expertise

Bespoke Design

I design new websites, applications and system interfaces from the ground up.

Branding & Identity Icon

Branding & Identity

I create identities for companies with logo design, custom colour palettes, font usage and general brand guidelines. Once the brand is established, the design work for the website can start based on the styles and rules set.

User Experience (UX) Design Icon

User Experience (UX) Design

Every design I do starts off as a wireframe or sketch, allowing me to define and highlight certain user journeys. The level of depth and detail covered in the UX design process is relative to the size of the project.

User Interface (UI) Design Icon

User Interface (UI) Design

Once the UX design is complete I start designing the interface in Photoshop. This allows me to create rich visuals for the client so they can see an accurate portrayal of what the website will look like once built.

Responsive Web Development

I build responsive websites and applications based on signed off designs.

HTML5

I create identities for companies with logo design, custom colour palettes, font usage and general brand guidelines. Once the brand is established, the design work for the website can start based on the styles and rules set.

{}

CSS3

Using CSS3 I style interfaces to match designs and keep the website as light-weight as possible. I’m a great believer in graceful degradation so I ensure websites and applications are still visually engaging in older browsers even if there are less rounded corners, shadows and transitions.

$()

Javascript

Keeping websites dynamic and functional is made possible by javascript. Using the jQuery library I ensure websites have form validation and any number of trigger events for custom functionality across the website.

Server Side Build

I integrate databases and server-side functionality with the UI.

PHP

PHP is how I integrate more complicated functionality onto a website. This ranges from simple database manipulation in a CMS (Content Management System) to bespoke login systems and E-commerce.

SQL

MySQL

I use databases to store essential information for the website, for example, login details, page content or online bookings. I use this in partnership with PHP in an LAMP environment.

WordPress Icon

WordPress

I use WordPress on a regular basis as a core for public-facing websites. I create bespoke WordPress websites from scratch to meet clients’ requirements and avoid any bulky options they do not need.
