Freelance Website Designer

Experience

I began experimenting with website design and development in the late 90s. Back then, I primarily used Macromedia Flash, which later became Adobe Flash. In 2009, Flash was beginning to be phased out on the web, so I started focusing on websites built entirely with HTML and CSS.

In 2012 I began to make responsive websites as more users started to browse the internet on tablets and smartphones.

Shortly after, I began specialising in WordPress as the demand for content management systems increased.

Software / Languages

I am proficient in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP

I do most of my coding in Adobe Brackets and VS Code.

Web Skills

WordPress Specialist

In recent years I have begun to specialise in WordPress design and development. While not perfect, the flexibility and scope to rapidly add and change features have made it a solid choice for many projects.

Adding Value

When working directly for clients, being able to unite the design and development adds value.

Similarly, when working freelance with an inhouse developer, I usually submit designs in HTML and CSS. This allows for quick iterations and saves the developer time when they add the functionality.
