Tech direction

Good tech direction during a project helps manage technical risks and identify opportunities, as well as supporting scheduling and budgeting decisions.

Every project needs some tech direction, even if it's just a few hours at the beginning. I have 15+ years of web experience - designing, developing, supporting and advising clients across a wide variety of industries. So I have an excellent knowledge of what's out there, what's possible, where it's relevant, how to use it and when to avoid it.

UI design

I've worked on websites/web applications for 15+ years, inc:
- booking systems
- learning platforms
- ecommerce
- complex user dashboards

While generally working alongside specialist designers, I have a lot of experience designing user interfaces myself, particularly with more complex web applications.

But... UI design is only a complementary skill of mine. It's not my primary focus. Hire me as a developer with UI design expertise, not as a UI designer.
