Designing and front-end developing since 1998 – having picked up my first HTML book in late 1997, and writing a few lines to output a basic page with "Hello World" as the title and H1, I began to put my self taught (1996) Photoshop skills to use. The first job as an assistant & art–worker morphed into a role as web designer where a small vector package (then called Future Splash) made a big impact as it evolved into Flash.
With a diverse skillset covering: concepts; wireframes; design; production; front-end developing and consulting (not a programmer) I have a wealth of experience and continually keep abreast of developments in web design theory and practice.
I've seen “Skip Intros” come and go alongside many other interweb fashions (both good and bad) while always keeping an awareness of The User and their requirements and advocating a design process that strives to meets those needs. After all without your visitors your site has no real purpose.
Having worked on mobile I now am fully behind and advocate a Responsive Design approach as a way of reaching the widest audience on their terms. Apps look great and can be a wonderful experience but designing, building, testing and managing your properties content across so many diverse OS's can quickly become a time consuming & costly nightmare. Responsive web design can simplify that process and offers many answers to the questions thrown out by a growing web enabled device landscape.
This site uses Iconic web fonts by Some Random Dude which are pretty damn wonderful – IMHO.
