About

My name is Liam.

I’m a versatile and experienced front-end developer specialising in graphics, web and UX/UI, having worked in both corporate and creative industries. In my spare time, I am a musician with a keen interest in videography.

Design Philosophy

Grounded in Front-End Development, Human-Centred Design and UX/UI Design, my intention as a creator is to build playful interactive artefacts based on researched user requirements that are easily accessible, visually pleasing, and beneficial to users.

I am an advocate in designing for change. User needs are constantly changing, and technology is constantly evolving to respond to them. My approach to design is to critically analyse today’s problem to build tomorrow’s solution.

Personal Strategy

Over the last four years I have worked as a freelance graphic designer helping small businesses establish their brand and identity, and have worked collaboratively with marketing teams of larger businesses and mobile startups. While studying at university over those years, I have upskilled into the design realms of User Experience and Front-End Development.

I am keen to grow in this skillset with other like-minded designers and developers, to keep building valuable products that help benefit clients as user needs continue to change.
