How I work

Future friendly

Today’s web can be viewed in browsers on smartphones, tablets, phablets, netbooks, notebooks, desktops or even fridges. What’s next is unknown, so I aim to design appropriately and build solidly. Device agnostic, as much as I can. In everything I do, I aim to think future friendly.

Structure first

I’m serious about mark-up, the structure that lies underneath what websites look like. Well-thought structure can do a lot of good to a website and is helpful for things like responsive web design, findability in search engines, accessibility and maintainability.
