This is the My personal design blog.
There’s also a range of my web projects design.
I have a passion for all things creative, and as a designer myself, I know how handy online resources such as tutorials can be to sharpen and develop your design skill set.
In April 2008 I setup this site as a personal design related blog, originally to experiment with the WordPress application and to give myself a digitial playground to practice and develop new techniques.
In September 2009 my blogging shenanigans had provided me with some great exposure as a designer, and generated a good base revenue that allowed me to leave my position as a designer at a local studio and begin my career as an independent designer. I’ve seen a mass of opportunities through the increased exposure blogging has provided, such as inclusions in various high profile websites and publications, appearances in magazines and a position as a co-author of an exciting design related book.
In March 2010 I branched out with a online shopping website, named The Cheapest Glasses Frame.Com, where I continue my documentation of all things design, but this time with a solid focus on web design. Topics include showcases of popular trends, design and coding tutorials and a roundup of my favourite web designs each week.
