how do you do?
Getting to know the client or company I am working for allows me to deliver a great user interface which matches their personality as well as meeting their customer's requirements. Specialising in responsive website design, I love adapting designs to fit perfectly on a range of screen sizes such as desktop, tablet and mobile.
Working with PHP based content management systems such as Wordpress and Drupal, and using the latest web standards, I am able to efficiently develop websites which meet the needs of the client whilst providing the flexibility required to stay on top in such a fast-paced and constantly changing world.
I completed a bachelor's degree in Media Production & Technology at UCLAN before venturing out into the big wide world and working in a variety of IT roles. In 2011 I started working as a front-end web developer at The Safe Shop before moving to Australia and working for Juggler Design, where I created small business websites, and Shareable Apps, where I helped to develop a mobile app building platform.
I have helped to create and redesign many websites with Juggler Design, the majority of which are WordPress based. I am usually provided with a Photoshop or Illustrator template which I use as a guide to develop a responsive theme. I also help to maintain and update websites, and convert fixed-width themes into responsive themes.
I worked for The Safe Shop for one year during which time I helped to redesigned the whole website using a grid-based system to make the website more modular and flexible. The CSS was re-written from scratch and the PHP was heavily modified. I was also regularly using Photoshop and Fireworks to re-touch product images.
This e-commerce store was built using WordPress and the WooCommerce plugin. I added a number of plugins and theme customisations to increase usability and enhance the design. The website uses a simple and clean style to complement the product photography and the jewellery being sold.
This website was created with Wordpress using a responsive child-theme. I created the jQuery slider and carousel plugins, new home and recipe templates and custom widgets. The CSS has had a large number of changes and the existing rich snippets were replaced with Schema.org markup.
I developed Flip Footwear using Drupal and the Amazon Store module. All of the page templates were redesigned to give a new look to the store as well as making it responsive to the screen size the page was being viewed on. A number of rules were created to allow custom URLs for each page.
At the moment you can find me in Alsace, France!
