I am an award-winning 25 year old web designer & developer working for a small but perfectly formed digital agency with three years industry experience. I am multi-disciplinary however I mainly work with WordPress using HTML5, CSS3 and PHP. I am also a strong advocate of “in-browser design” – this means I prototype my designs straight into a web browser rather than designing in Photoshop, which I prefer to use as a tool to aid. I tend to produce designs that focus on simplicity, typography and colour – rather than strong gradients, bevels or anything skeuomorphic.
I am in favour of the “flat design” trend which was largely kick-started by Microsoft with Windows 8. Other examples would include the recent release of iOS7. However I prefer to think of this methodology in terms of being focused on typography.
