Hi. My name is Kam and I’m a front-end developer and designer.
You can find a few examples of my work, my development playground and all of the important stuff (like my twitter address) here. There’s also a link to my blog where I’ll be posting anything that catches my eyes or ears from new music to new technology.
But it’s not all HTML, I’m a creative developer which means I can take you from design concept to code to a fully-responsive website.
If you have a project that needs to be designed and built or if you need some extra help please feel free to contact me via the contact form at the bottom of this page or, alternatively, send me an email: [email protected].
Where did it all begin?
I was heavily influenced by my fathers career in media and his interest in computers. I found my self bringing the two together as I grew up and loved learning how ‘machine code’ could create graphics as well as audio. I went through short episodes in life where I was DJ’ing and creating short stop animation videos as well as manipulating images in Adobe Photoshop. I then chose to study Multimedia at Nottingham Trent University. For the three years I covered all things ‘multimedia’ (photography, audio, animation and web) but I decided to spend two of the three years focused on “the web” as it focused on how to code as well as design – I felt I found what I wanted to do for fun as well as a career!
Where am I now?
I’m now a freelance creative developer as well as a young consultant in London. I work for my own clients as well as contracting within agencies and companies, be they big, small, established or start ups via my Ltd company: Scripted Pixels.
What I do and where it started:
When I graduated I started off working for a young agency outside of London doing simple design and development – HTML4/CSS2 to W3C standards. This opened the doors to the world of ‘handling real life clients’ and managing projects from start-to-finish. I gained invaluable insight in how to manage a project, the client and understand the planning and time it would take to complete projects.
As I progressed through my career in and into London I worked my way from a a permanent ‘junior web developer’ at Foxtons to a ‘mid-weight freelance Creative Developer’ working for various agencies and companies.
Throughout my career I’ve worked on various projects with different technologies, such as:
With the experience of using the above and from working with various companies (listed here); I now focus on making websites accessible to everyone – this means building sites that work across multiple devices. This is classed as responsive web design and for me it’s ensuring the most important content of any site is available for everyone no matter what device they are using.
