Welcome to my website! My aim is to produce stylish websites that are functional, creative and great for usability. I have designed and built over 100 websites from online shops, to portfolio and brochure websites for clients ranging from large corporate companies to small local businesses.
My experience in graphic design stretches to 12 years - upon graduating from university I discovered my passion was working with screen based design as it never fails to provide challenges and is constantly evolving so you never get bored! I also like reinforcing my practices in print which I occasionally dabble in.
Although I am a bit of a self-confessed geek I have the ability to communicate directly with the client in plain english, without confusing them with tech-talk. I also have a quick turnaround on my work without compromising on quality and work to strict deadlines.
Generally known as Bhups amongst friends and colleagues, I'm also known to have a range of nicknames, going as far as being called Burrito?!
I like listening to a variety of music, going to gigs, and use music as an inspiration in my creative work. In my spare time I enjoy doing canvas paintings - they make an interesting choice of gift when I've run out of ideas from the Argos catalogue!
My preference of movie genres can occasionally make me referred to as a geek (but we've already covered that), however I can't help using the force to open doors - regardless of the fact they're automatic.
In addition to that I enjoy banter with friends over a hot chocolate or beer (usually followed by a kebab), and also exercising my vocal chords by screaming at the television during an intense match of football.
Here's a selection of websites I have designed and built over the past few years. Clients range from Blue Chip B2B Organisations to companies who prefer a more creative approach direct to consumers.
Websites created under the employ of Edge of the Web Ltd.
Working as a web designer for close to 10 years, my skills primarily involve designing using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and building sites by hand-coding HTML and CSS. My coding skills extend to the basic use of PHP with MySQL and also jQuery.
I occasionally work with Wordpress and have developed various themes for blog use or simply utilising Wordpress as a content management system.
Outside web design I quite often also deal with branding for various companies. My experience includes magazine layouts, illustration, computer manipulation, typography, leaflets, posters, photography, animation, and basic video editing.
Aside from Photoshop and Illustrator, I also have knowledge of using Dreamweaver and Flash for web work, and Indesign for print work.
