UX / UI Design

I approach interface design from a user's perspective. I like to understand the business, the audience and the purpose.

I have been an website / UX / UI designer for over 19 years, 13 of those as a full-time freelancer. I have worked on a great variety of sites and web applications. It's standard practise to create a responsive layout for all projects.

But wait...

There are so many other web design projects – but they're getting a bit old now.

Notable projects from 2006 to 2011: Department of Education, Syncplicity.com, Slader.com, Somedays, Emotum, NSW Nurses' Association, NSW Teacher's Federation, Corality and a whole bunch of NRL projects (+ many others of course).
