Designer, Developer, Maker of things...

I have a background in interaction design, and several years’ experience in news and editorial, working for organisations such as The Times, BBC, The Telegraph and Channel 4 News. Currently I offer creative front-end development and design consultancy for branding and digital studios, both in the UK and internationally.

My specialisms are styling/layout systems, patterns and component libraries, navigation, animation and responsive layout. Favourite tools include: Craft, Wordpress, SASS, Tailwind, jQuery, Vue JS, Git, Gulp, and Webpack. I’m intrigued by the intersection of design and engineering and I’m always working to bridge that gap between disciplines.

Sounds like a good fit? Drop me an email

Music Ontology

Identity, Web

The Music Ontology is a community-driven API and vocabulary for publishing a wide range of music-related data on the web.

I designed the identity and built a website to represent the project, providing summary and technical support for users and developers wishing to contribute to the project.
