So far, ABBA confidently Voyage into the twenty-first century. The new tracks are a weighty continuation of sound, and I’m excited about the new album.

Bleak. Beautiful. Sad. I’ll mentally slot this in the list of films “I’ll probably never watch again”; a slow and draining mirror of humanity.

About Me

Hi, I’m Jay—a designer who codes, a coder who designs, or a gamer with no time to game anymore. I have 12 years of experience, and I really enjoy developing custom marketing websites that don’t look like boring templates. This is my happy place.

I take pride in art direction, attention to detail, typography, front-end design, and client communication. I’m originally from Wales, but I’ve lived in London for 15 years—so I can design like a hipster and drink coffee like a snob, but you can still talk to me on a human level, boyo.

Since I come from a design background, I also enjoy working with visual designers. Give me a PDF, Adobe XD file, or whatever format you like, and I’ll translate it into a beautiful website. Don’t need a content management system? I’ll happily design it in pure HTML / CSS to save you some money. We can move it to a Content Management System later if needed.

Talking of Content Management Systems, I’ve chosen to specialise in Statamic. Because I focus on one particular CMS, I can custom-develop your site quickly and confidently. I can build you a website without any third-party dependencies and give you access to the most beautiful editing experience I’ve ever seen.

The sites I build are high-quality, performant, secure, and SEO-friendly. I effectively build on top of Laravel, widely regarded as the most secure and well-maintained PHP framework today.

This wouldn’t be an “About Me” section if I didn’t mention hobbies. I have a zippy road bike ebike to take me into London a couple of days a week. Cycling 11 miles takes the same amount of time less time than travelling by train. This still blows my mind! I arrive at the office feeling smug that I’ve just cheated time with a cardio workout.

My spare time is split between cycling, racket sports, playing video games with childhood friends who live in different countries, and tinkering with side projects. As part of that, I run a Design Critique community – feel free to join our Discord channel.
