Hi, I'm Richard. I make websites.
My primary expertise is in web design, front-end development, web standards, usability, SEO and content editing, and my preferred tools are Photoshop, HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, PHP and WordPress. I have a background in both design and development, which allows me to easily work alongside developers on large scale projects.
I firmly believe that if something's worth doing then it's worth doing right. Each of my websites is finely crafted to ensure they are of the utmost quality. Before a single pixel is published, it must pass an exacting series of tests. First, I polish every design in Photoshop until it shines with an unholy burning light. Then I hand-code the site using only the finest HTML ingredients, sprinkling it with a garnish of cutting-edge CSS and jQuery. Finally, each pixel must undergo a gruelling fitness regimen to shave off those unwanted bytes, saving precious seconds of download time. Only then is the site ready to be served piping hot to your browser.
Originally from earthquake-stricken Christchurch in New Zealand, I'm currently in the UK armed with a two year work visa and a desire to see as much of Europe as humanly possible.
When I'm not being a web geek I can be found skiing, unicycling, and occasionally attempting to juggle.Get in touch Download my CV
