Hello! I’m Steve, a designer who codes. I built my first website when I was around 12 in a school class using Microsoft Frontpage. I didn’t think too much of it, but it eventually became a hobby for me. Which led me to University, where I graduated in July 2011 and shortly after found a job. That’s me in summary.
I studied web development, which people tend to find strange; as I focus on design. There was two reasons why; I wanted to study in Manchester and there wasn’t a design focused course in Manchester. That’s different now, but I believe the course is what you make of it and “web development” wouldn’t be considered an accurate reflection based on the work I done.
As a designer, I enjoy the whole process, but specialise in user interface and user experience. I think the amount of years I have been doing this have helped me into a more unique position. I’m happy coding and designing equally, and believe it helps make a better end product.
