I make design & code (& other things).
I work a lot in the arts and for small businesses and NGOs. I’ve made websites for artists of all types, literary awards, translation agencies, vehicles manufacturers, and a wide variety of projects in agencies.
My aim is to simplify and demystify the whole process of building, designing, using, and maintaining a website for people, organisations, and companies who want to be responsible for and have full, uncomplicated control over their website.
I provide consulting and advice on all aspects of design and development, performance and security, localisation, and general webserver and hosting support.
- Inclusive design is the first thing.
- Things I care about: Inclusivity, Accessibility, Usability, Performance, Aesthetics.
- I’m good anywhere in the LAMP & CSS/JS/HTML stacks.
Other things I write & use & do:
- HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, ES6, Responsive Design,UX/UI, typography & webfonts, image and video management, structured data (schema.org)
- .htaccess, SSH, caching & performance, opcache, security, HSTS, Let’s Encrypt, GRPR / DSVGO
- Apache server setup, Linux VM setup, webhosting setup & management, consulting, content management
- Also: photography, image editing, & Photoshop (I use Panasonic and Canon); video, camera, editing, & Final Cut Pro X; and pretty much anything in MacOS
WordPress & adjacent stuff I use on the regular:
- functions, plugins, and theme development, Advanced Custom Fields WPML WooCommerce MediaElement.js DataTables Ninja Forms, WP-CLI, NextCloud, Laravel
I live in Berlin. Other cities with the letters ‘b’, ‘r’, ‘e’, and/or ‘l’ also may be attractive to me, as are forests, mountains, big oceans. Most interesting stuff is on my blog, supernaut …
Currently working on a couple of projects, & freelancing for a couple of agencies.
