My past and present
I'v been designing and building things for the web for 14 years. I've had periods of specialisation in UI, UX, IxD, and content design, while always doing some form of development work, mostly front-end development.
Over the last few years I've worked on being a more all-encompassing web developer, without any particular specialist area, in order to provide more robust applications to meet different and sometimes competing requirements.
My preferred approach
I work remotely and only come into client offices for short periods if it is really required. I believe in iterative improvement, task transparency and accountability, branch-driven development, and the mantra of stop starting and start finishing.
I like to rely on task management tools and merge requests (for technical collaborators) to form the bulk of communication and feedback. Other collaboration and communication tools can then be used if necessary to fill the gaps that these don't cover. Less overheads for you; more accountable productivity from me.
New working relationships
I recommend a limited-risk trial period or a small parcel of work to see if I'm going to be a good fit. I can provide examples of my work on request.
