My Skills

Working as a Web Developer & Designer calls for a broad knowledge set.
This list serves as an overview of my technical, creative and analytical skills.
Website Development
Website Development

A website is an essential way of reaching your customers and prospective clients. With almost a decade of experience, I'm an expert at building, managing and optimising websites.

Web Apps (PWA)
Web Apps (PWAs)

Whilst website's should always be designed to work well on mobiles; sometimes a 'Progressive Web App' is the ideal solution. PWAs are small websites that are designed to act like a typical app - they also have the added benefit of working well across devices, can be downloaded directly from websites (without the need of an app store) and take up very little space on a user's phone.

Server & Database Management

Most digital systems and tools (not just websites) require a robust server and an efficient database. I have a lot of experience working with a range of Windows and Linux based servers.

This overlaps with server management - but setup, configuration and maintenance of a server for hosting websites is a popular need. It's essential to select and configure your web hosting platform to support your website without it slowing down, performing badly in other countries or crashing all together.

Design & UX

I initially started as a website developer (building website based on expisting designs) - but this quickly taught me how to efficiently design digital tools. Also, through constant and regular research into design trends and UX principles, I've become an expert at assessing user journeys and designing tools that users can use efficiently and without frustration.

Traditional graphic design doesn't tend to include the ability to create 3D models and environments - these are essential for use in Virtual and Augmented Reality applications/websites and animations.

SEO, SEM and Analytics
SEO, SEM &
Analytics

Many developers build a great tool but neglect its visibility - It's so important to ensure a website is built with cutting edge Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) principles in mind. Beyond this, I have many years of experience advising clients on content improvements (to better cater to search engines) and can also provide regular statistics on traffic/usage/conversions - allowing you to define goals and measure success.
