Graphics & Design


About Me

I have a BSc in Bioanthropology and a diploma of Graphic Design.

An interest in computers and the Internet from an early age has informed my wide range of interests. Growing up in during the golden age of the Internet and being generally curious, I’ve also explored the fields of photography, film & animation, game design, writing & illustrating comics, music and vandalism. Plus others!

When it comes to design, I prefer to think of myself as a full-stack creative; I have experience in branding, copywriting, illustrating, front & back-end web development, type design...and I’m game to learn just about anything.

I’m a concept guy who takes being lazy seriously.

About this Site

I've had some kind of personal website (we used to call ‘em “homepages”) since about 2003—I was about 14. Having a website used to mean something, dammit! Now everybody and their dog (literally) have a website in the form of a Facebook or Instagram page, and we tend to take the whole thing for granted.

Because I have always loved to develop for web, I’m proud to say this site is built almost entirely by hand, using Tania Rascia’s Primitive framework along with my own HTML, CSS, JQuery and PHP. I built it over a few weeks in 2017. It’s responsive and content is mainly generated using a bare bones CMS which I wrote in PHP.

On the surface, this site is my graphic design portfolio—but in the spirit of the weird and labyrinthine homepage, there are plenty of extras to explore.
