i built my debut website at the age of 13, combining various bits of HTML , seasoned with animated fire gifs, clip-art & a dash of freeware JS scripts. It was baked in MS Frontpage, and thankfully, never deployed to the web.

In 2009 I decided to try again, and have been designing and building websites ever since.

Edublogs.org

Back in 2012, working at Incsub I was asked to re-design Edublogs.org to provide it with a more modern, yet fun aesthetic that would appeal primarily to female educator target audience. I designed the website to have a fun, crafty feeling to it, with blackboard background, a fun typeface and pen & ink illustrations.

WPMU DEV

One of my 1st projects at Incsub was to finish the re-design of WPMU DEV website. Initial designs were done by Dan Mall, my role was to modify those designs to meet the business goals and to assist with front-end development of the website. Images below are of the pages that I designed.

Simple folio – WordPress theme

With the rise of megathemes like Avada, The7 or X, the theme market (in my opinion) is becomming plagued by feature-driven approach, that tries to bundle as much functioonality as possible into the theme, often with no regard to the user expereince. Simple folio is a theme that tries to dial that down. It ships with only a limited number of clean layouts allowing and no forced plugins, allowing user to focus on their content, and not spend hours configuring the theme.

Drammy — A Whisky Review Theme

Drammy is a theme designed for whisky review sites. As a person who reads quite a number of whsiky reviews, I am often disappointed by the designs aesthetic and at times readability of the themes used by the reviewers. So I designed a theme to solve that.
