UI & UX Design

Although not my natural preference, very early on in my studies I discovered the importance of design, and sought to develop skills and knowledge in this area.

Without a clear and purposeful interface, it can be highly frustrating or even impossible to understand and make use of even the most well-constructed system. And, without attention to the user experience, a website will fail to make an emotional impact on the user, minimising returning traffic.

Although I'm no expert on these topics, I can certainly hold my own when the need to turn my hand to design arises. Here's the type of thing I've found myself working on.

  - Browser-based games
  - E-commerce websites
