Thanks for stopping by! You've found my portfolio and project site. Join me on a journey to discover what “good” design really means, browse some of my work, watch me fail (then try again) and get in touch if you have any questions, or would like to work together.
I am currently a product designer at Automattic — the folks behind WordPress.com, Jetpack, WooCommerce and Tumblr. Automattic is a distributed company with friends and colleagues in 79 countries. Gemma and I took that as an opportunity to relocate to our favourite city, Stockholm in 🇸🇪 Sweden.
I’m interested in how planetary boundaries will impact the longevity and durability of the web. I am happiest when my work intersects design, open source and sustainability. When I am writing code you will find me on the front-end tackling issues of accessibility and performance.
I am known for being thoughtful, candid, organised, inquisitive and owning a few too many Raspberry Pi computers.
It’s time to create better, not more.
About this site
The site is self hosted on a solar powered Raspberry Pi Zero and has network responsive images that will be optimised to your device, your network connection and the health of the solar battery. I am also planting trees to help offset everything I do or make. The site is built with Nuxt.js and Nuxt content, replacing the previous site that used a decoupled WordPress backend. There are no trackers, cookies or ads to worry about which hopefully means improved performance and less noise.
The body copy is set in Atkinson Hyperlegible which was created by the Braille Institute and is aimed to improve legibility for low vision readers. I am still evaluating if the additional page weight is a trade off worth making, so let me know if you find the site a pleasure or challenge for your eyes.
