I'm a contract front-end developer and interface designer.
I work directly with businesses or with agencies.
You can hire me to design and build web sites, or functional interactive prototypes. If your site, widget or form requires a little bit of animation then that sounds like my cup of tea.
I'm based near Manchester, England.
Wordpress?... If your need a small CMS then it's Perch for the win :)
I've worked on several high profile websites in various sectors (eCommerce, University, Public Transport, Corporate) either as a designer or as a front-end dev. Below is feedback from some recent clients. Contact me for examples / URLs.
Working with Nick was an excellent experience - his combined creativity and attention to detail turned our initial ideas into an interactive site that exceeded our expectations. Every element had been well thought out - the colour palette, layout etc. In particular, he developed an algorithm to select the relevant feedback from our interactive quiz. Nick is very easy to work with and came up with lots of ideas to drive the project forwards.
Lindsey Munro - MMU
Nick is one of those rare and valuable examples of a freelancer you can completely rely upon. Technically he does things right and on-time, but for me his real skill comes in faithfully and painstakingly translating designs into working websites. One of the best experiences I have had working with a freelance developer.
David Bowers - Evolutia
Nick's interpretation of our requirements was spot on - he worked through all the technical aspects of the site, including a number of quite complex interfaces with other client systems. He got right under the skin of the project, building the site from the ground up to deliver the highest levels of accessibility and ensuring the site worked seamlessly across a range of devices.
Sue Vanden - Hemisphere
Nick was a one stop shop for wire-framing, design, user experience, right the way through to producing high fidelity designs and functional prototypes. His work was excellent, as was his ability to articulate the rationale used in the different approaches and his relentless consideration for the customer.
Peter Gibbs - Iceland Foods
Nick demonstrated excellent problem-solving skills, and was able to align user needs and business requirements in the form of viable solutions for many technical areas of our websites such as checkout and payments. Nick tackled many of the less conventional edge cases, and understood and developed the principals or persuasion architecture.
Simon Poole - Littlewoods / Shop Direct
Having previously worked with Nick at Autotrader, I invited him to help us build a site for a client's new tyre brand. We were very pleased with his work and support. Not only did Nick fulfill the creative brief we gave him, but he came back with his own ideas that helped enhance the end product.
