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. I graduated from University in May 2011. It really doesn’t seem that long ago! I went on to study web development and finally make a full time career out of it.
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.
I aspire to be as confident in illustration, as I am web design. It’s something I try to devote time to improving outside of web related learning. Illustration adds uniqueness to a website that a photo can’t. It’s quite calming to draw and spend time doing that.
