Perfection, as standard
Working as a multi-disciplined designer, I strive for perfection, delivering the highest quality design, development & user centred results.
I specialise in creating beautiful responsive websites, tailored to your business. I believe that you can only make something amazing if you have the passion and understanding – as such my expertise covers the full process, from information architecture, wireframes, concepts and prototypes through to pixel perfect designs and everything else in-between.
Interaction & UX design
I design user experiences and interactions that feel fresh, yet keep a strong sense of what’s usable and pragmatic at heart. To achieve this I think as a user for the user, and magically distill complex ideas into building blocks through wireframes, user flows and site maps. I make the complex simple and know the details aren't the details, they are the product. The best interactions aren't even noticed by a user because the design gets out of their way.
HTML & CSS
All my designs are lovingly handcoded from scratch using HTML5 & CSS3 and the latest techniques. I have developed complex pages for large scale sites and as such I understand the importance of making sure my code is predictable, reusable, maintainable and scalable. When I'm done, I optimise 'til the cows come home to make sure everything responds and loads blisteringly quick.
Combined with an in-depth understanding of UX and design means I can take interactivity from start to finish. I create bespoke applications that enhance the user experience ten-fold; maps, booking engines, timelines, sliders, accordions – to name but a few.
I have integrated designs into many leading Content Management Systems (CMS), both large and small, paid and open source. I can consult and provide you with a site that can be fully managed by you or your business. If required I can also help with hosting.
All websites I build are built with the latest search engine optimisation techniques. I am able to offer advice on why existing websites are underperforming across search engines and redesign pages to rectify this.
