Tēnā koe, welcome to my portfolio.

I’m a UI/UX designer & developer, originally from a traditional Graphic Design background and transitioned into Digital and Web Design

I support digital accessibility, am curious and enjoy working with creative and integration teams delivering digital solutions.

With professionalism, integrity, and care. I work in a collaborative manner to plan, design and deliver crafted solutions

  • Implementation of the UI/UX design process
  • Iterative wire-framing & prototypes
  • HTML components, React & Headless CMS's

Are you thinking about a new — or looking to upgrade an existing website?

I design and build optimised websites that are secure, cost-effective and fast. Performance. Integrations. Accessibility. SEO. Previews. Security. If you're looking for a new website or to upgrade, I’ve got it covered for you. Furthermore, I make the hardest parts of creating and great digital experience simple, leaving you more time focusing on your business.

Performance

I design and build websites that use; next-generation image formats and optimisation, styled components, lazy-loading, prefetching resources, and more to improve the performance and page loading speed of your website.

Only 4% of websites meet Google's Core Web Vitals. Does your website meet the Core Web Vitals? More importantly, has your website provider talked to you about their strategy on how they plan to meet the Core Web Vitals? As of June 2021, Google will start to consider “Page Experience” as part of search ranking, as measured by a set of metrics called Core Web Vitals.

An optimised website that loads quickly helps achieve the Core Web Vitals and also contributes to better user experience and positive page rankings.

Accessibility

I support digital accessibility, and it is considered into my design and build from the start. It is not an afterthought or something to test for later. 24% of New Zealanders identify themselves as having a disability. It does not make sense to ignore these users. An accessible website is inclusive. Is your website accessible?

The framework I use is recognised by WebAIM as the most accessible web framework with built-in best practices like accessible routing, progressive page enhancement and a built-in linting tool to find accessibility errors. Help make the web work for everyone.

Content & Previews

2021 offers a wide range of content systems. DatoCMS, Sanity, WordPress, Contentful and Agility are a selection of the products I have worked with.

I have created a demonstration template of what Prismic can accomplish with just one single, simple and manageable template. In fact, this website is built with Prismic CMS. Prismic It is cost-effective and has a great user onboarding and experience for content creators, designers and developers. Prismic empowers content creators to build and publish websites without constraints in locales of your choice. Create a schedule for releases, preview and share your content changes.

Don't let your website design and content be funnelled into restrictive and uncompromising templates. Build and publish what and when you want to.

Security

I use React to generate static HTML at build time. No server and no reachable database equals no malicious requests, DDOS attacks or accidental exposure. Your website attack surface will be low to non-existent.

Cost

The static websites I build are hosted on a global CDN that don’t require complex scaling operations or expensive plans. They scale when needed, but when traffic drops so does your usage — and your costs. Host your website for less (cheaper than Wix, WordPress and Squarespace) and use less energy. If you plan to administer your website on your own, and you have low traffic, you could be hosting for free. It's a smarter choice for the concious whom are considering responsible hosting with lower costs and carbon footprint!

Support

In my hands, your next website will be blazing fast, accessible, secure and customised. You will get personal support and I will answer your calls because I just simply ❤️ what I do.
