Learning Design


Skills summary

  • I’m the glue that can bind a talented group of artists and engineers together to define a project’s berth—then lead it to its birth.
  • I love working with people and making great products for happy clients by being the bridge of communication between the creators and the consumers.
  • I pan for the gold of matching the usability, accessibility and discovering the end-user’s actual demand, to the means and needs of the stakeholders.
  • I can take arcane technical concepts and translate them to plain english in the form of user documentation and technical manuals.
  • I delight in pushing pixels/vectors around and experimenting with liquid/responsive designs or just rapidly prototype wireframes that a graphic design team turns into beautiful creations.
  • My code is clean, well-structured and clearly documented.
  • Not one to stand still, I am a constant self and project motivated learner – but I’m never too proud to seek help with my peers or through online communities.
  • I consider myself a Full-stack developer by the definition of being able to single-handedly (or with a team) rollout a site from:
    • server setup and administration
    • hand-code a static or customise a framework/CMS
    • build WordPress and other platform themes from scratch
    • turn a mockup or full-realised design into a pixel-perfect responsively working site
