Typography (or how the words look) will make or break the information it’s trying to display. As a University of Reading graduate, I spent three years learning the fundamentals of this discipline; and – in my opinion – is what makes my designs so clean, information driven, and easy to use.
Responsive, future-proof builds
The biggest thing on the internet at the moment is responsive design. Mobile browsing accounts for over a third of all internet use now-a-days, making it more important than ever that your site looks beautiful, and works flawlessly on mobile devices.
What can I do for you?
Web design, and development
My main forté is my ability to design, and build websites – whether that be around an existing site, or totally from scratch; and I’ll talk you through it, and ensure that you get exactly what you’re looking for.
Why not take a look at the projects below, or get in touch. Remember that they're not all there – I’ve worked on many!
I’ve got lots of strings to my bow though, and throughout my time studying for my First Class Honours degree in Graphic Communication I worked towards mastering the branding, and print design disciplines. This means that even if it’s not a web project, or if it’s an extension of one then I’m also your guy! If that sounds like what your project needs then be sure to get in touch.
I started work in the Digital Development team at the University of Reading in early June, and just over seven months, a lot of hard work, and a few too many coffees we launched the new, and improved reading.ac.uk.
I won't say much more for the timebeing because we're mid-way through a write-up of what we have implemented, why we did it, and why it's much more amazing now than it was before! What we will say is that it's still it it's alpha testing, so expect iterations to come.
I loved my time with the Typo Family, so I jumped at the opportunity to do a bit of work alongside Megan on the Hello hospitality site. Normally I design and build, but with Megan handling the design-side so beautifully, it was over to me to bring it to life on the amazing Anchor CMS.
We were both pleased with how it came out, and will hopefully be the first of many collaborations with the other University of Reading typography graduates!
Having built the previous two sites for the committee while I was a member, and then a president, the new team got me back in to revamp, and refresh it for the new year. I kept a clean, information-first approach using the gorgeous Tisa for the type.
I’ve worked with JJ for a while now, first through YouTube, and then on his website. Earlier this year he came to me about building a shop for his new clothing line, and that's how his online shop was born. If you buy anything on there, use the code Rob5 for a cheeky 5% off.
News can, and is regularly accessed across a wide range of devices. This project focused on how to best display modular, dynamic information across a range of screen sizes, and was my most, and least favourite brief from my entire degree. It kept me up at night, but I poured my heart and soul into it; and ultimately earning an Examiners' Award for the project.
As part of my third year studying Typography & Graphic Communication, Jake Giltsoff and I worked together on a project branding a potential start up aimed at reducing students' costs, and encouraging families to share their spare rooms. It was a great project, and as always when working with Jake it was a brilliant paired experience.
An old school friend of mine – Luke – is the front man of one of the best up and coming bands I’ve heard in a long while. It seemed only right to be the guy to sort them out with a great website to go with their new album.
99.9% of the time I work on project rates, rather than hourly, which means for me to tell you what it'll cost I’ll need to know abit about it. Drop me an email, and try and include as much information as you can about what needs doing, what your budget is, what the time constraints are. The more you can tell me the better! Don’t worry if the project is a secret, all emails are completely confidential, and we'll keep it completely under wraps until it’s ready to be brought to the internet.
I love a natter, especially if it’s about the web, front-end development, or just design in general. If you've got a problem, need some help with some code, or just want to run a few designs past me then feel free to get in touch. I’d probably advise dropping me a tweet first, because you'll get a faster reply. You'll also find posting blog entries, photos, works in progress and videos.
I’m afraid that I don't do YouTube work anymore, but I've written about it so you can go and find out why.
Born and raised in North London, but now I’m based in Reading. I graduated with a First Class Honours degree from the University of Reading, and now work in their Digital Development Team – for information on my current, and past work then give my CV a read.
I love typography (a bit too much), all things design-related, and Tottenham Hotspur; if you fancy chatting about any of them, or just want a natter then drop me a tweet, or get in touch through the site.
