I've finally got around to designing a new version of my website, and this is it. It is still a work in progress, but is hopefully now a much more functional way to showcase my work and information.
Since the last version of my site I've been lucky enough to work on lots of different design projects, not least working with start-ups like Coderwall and Pitchbox which have expanded my horizons quite a bit.
This site is now responsive and should work nicely at different browser sizes and on various devices. I built it using the very awesome Mixture, which makes life as a designer / front-end dev so much easier.
I have a fair bit of new work to add, along with a number of older pieces that were hidden away on the hard-drive, and hinted at on various occasions on my Dribbble profile.
I also intend to blog a lot more, discussing technical process stuff (design, CSS, HTML5, etc) as well as my experiences working as a designer and front end developer.
Let me know what you think, or if you spot any bugs I would be really grateful if you would get in touch.

I recently had the great opportunity to design the new Mixture.io desktop app. Mixture is a great development tool aimed at designers and developers, it makes life working with front-end code so much easier.Mixture MAC app
I used the branding and took influence from the look & feel already put in place by the very awesome Mr Mike Kus, who also gave overall art direction. The design needed to be simple and required a sidebar to house the various options on the left. The app sits on you desktop while you work and gives status updates on errors and to-do's.
I now use Mixutre all the time when working with code. If like me you are a designer and front-end dev, you should definitely give Mixture a try, it's an amazing tool for rapid prototyping with loads of cool features.
I also created a landing page to show off the new design and highlight some of Mixture's features when the new version of the app was released. You can see more screens from this project in my portfolio.
