I've worked with...

Now let's get your brand up there!

Things I'm Pretty Good At

HTML5

HTML5 is the latest iteration of the language which structures web pages. The newest version of HTML allows websites to be more dynamic and interactive at a lower computational cost.

Things I'm Getting Better At

Machine Learning

Machine learning is a branch of artificial intelligence used to analyse data. The results of machine learning can be used to make decisions and automate tasks. Using this feature in websites can allow for extremely intelligent services.

Recent Projects

EdFringeReview

EdFringeReview is a unique reviewing website for the Edinburgh Fringe which focusses on encouraging dialog and conversation between reviewers and readers.

The EdFringeReview site was built from the ground up with a custom content management system and authentication system built on top of Angular with Firebase as the backend. This allowed for lightning quick load times and great reliability.

The client wanted a clean and minimalist design which was responsive but maintained the EdFringeReview branding. The color scheme is consistent and tools such as Adobe XD and SASS were used to help ensure the design's consistency and responsivity.

Lion in Winter Ball

A hybrid app developed for an event with almost 1,000 attendees. The Lion in Winter Ball App was built using the Ionic framework and then deployed to iOS and Android devices via the App Store and Google Play

The app made use of various native APIs such as local storage facilities to store preferences, the mobile camera to scan QR codes and notifications for push and local purposes.

A content management system was also built and powered by Firebase. Running the backend for the app in the cloud enabled scalable infrastructure on the night enabling consistent access to the service.

So what happens next?

Well, we'll start by figuring out exactly what your project needs and from this we can put together a specification.

Once the specification is put together, a quote agreed and contract signed it's time to begin work! Depending on your project, we'll start by designing the user interface and user experience

If your project is a bit more complicated we'll then start planning the backend which makes the logic work.

And finally we'll write the code and then deploy the project! You'll be kept in the loop during the whole procedure and we'll iterate round milestones to make sure the project is exactly what you expect.
