What I do

HTML5 + CSS3

I am proficient within HTML5 and CSS3 with experience developing with Bootstrap and Sass.

JavaScript

I have some experience developing features using vanilla JavaScript whilst currently looking into JavaScript libraries such as jQuery and Vue.js

PHP + SQL

While I love developing for front-end, I have recently gained a huge interest in taking on back-end environments using PHP and SQL to create a more dynamic experience within a website.

What I've done

Solent University's Radio Website

Radio Sonar is Solent University's student run radio station, and they requested a brand new snazzy website ready for the freshers joining the university in September 2019.  This project was an honour to work on, and I found it an incredibly enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Daily Logo Challenge

Throughout 2018 I decided to undertake the daily logo challenge. Although I never completed all 50 logo briefs, I did get a large portion completed and this process allowed me to learn lots of new techniques within Adobe Illustrator. There's a clear improvement of my logo design work shown within my Behance profile as the days progressed.

Queens of the South

A client came to me needing a logo for their new online magazine they were launching for their third year project “Queens of the South”, which featured drag queens and gender identity in and around the south of England. Check out the logo in full quality on my Behance page.

Why I do it

When I was 13 years old, I was obsessed with games and websites and how to make them. I’d watch countless videos about how to create your own games, most of which left me completely bewildered and feeling hopeless. Come age 15, I started a GCSE in Computer Science, before going on to study Computer Science and Web Design at A-Level. My love for code continued to grow, and I took a keen interest within coding websites over gaming. That brings me to now,  studying my final year of BSc in Web Design and Development at Solent University. What’s next?

Let's talk
