I’ve never been one to care for job titles. One or two words can’t adequately explain the extent of our roles. I try to avoid giving myself a strict title on this website.
On my homepage:
“I design, build & write all things web”
Then I list:
Process & Strategy
These pages are a delicate balance of an intelligent, […]
On Monday I wrote about using SVG for content images. Aside from minor workarounds for a peculiar Internet Explorer bug, it’s a relatively straight forward task.
I was planning to follow up with a technical overview of SVG sprites, but really, I can’t write anything better than Sara Soueidan’s comprehensive guide: “An Overview of SVG Sprite Creation Techniques”.

Now I have an army of tools at my finger tips. When I began to establish my Grunt tasks I wanted something basic for HTML. My biggest gripe was repetition. The simple concept […]
It’s funny what you get used to.
I migrated from an iPhone to a larger Android device many years back. Nowadays, squinting at a smaller mobile screen makes me feel a bit dizzy.
When I started freelancing last year I moved in the opposite direction. At my old workplace I dual-wielded 24” monitors. Since then I’ve adapted to a single 13” MacBook […]
