About

Web Designer & Front End Developer

Skills

As a graduate of Platt College, and over 8 years commercial experience working in various web related roles, I have a wide range of skills; front end development, web site design, and back end development.

I’m constantly trying to find better, more efficient ways to build websites, utilizing the latest web technologies. For many of my projects, I rely on tools and open-source libraries such as jQuery, Sass, Git, Grunt, Bower, Yeoman, Bootstrap, Zurb Foundation, and Modernizr.

Front End Development


CSS3

HTML5

JavaScript

My goal is to create a website that allows users to experience the website in the best and most appropriate way suited to the device they are using. By using progressive enhancement, a website is delivered with a responsive layout that can best make use of the space available on the smallest to largest devices.

Cross browser compatibility is ensured by using feature detection so older browsers still in use today have a solid experience, while enhancing the experience for the modern browsers.

Writing clean semantic markup that is well documented and easy to read means it can be maintained and scaled in the future, and allows co-workers to quickly jump in and pick it up.

Web Design


Photoshop

Fireworks

I'm always striving to create fresh, clean, inspiring designs, while paying close attention adhering to the best principles of website design.

Back End Development


Wordpress

PHP

I have a good understanding of back end development and have found that to be very beneficial in my career.

I often make use of PHP and use WordPress to allow for content management of many of the sites I create.



Summary

Since the web is constantly changing, I feel adaptability is key. Making sure new standards are always adhered to, new technologies are not used for the sake of it, but embraced when they will enhance a project and offer an advantage.
