I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

I started a blog on my portfolio site today. The first post is about some of the utility sites I use to find a starting point at the beginning of a project.

Please to get the first of my new service pages on up on my design website. Anyone in need of a marketing website for their small business or project, get in touch!

Testing Quill out since my websites have all just moved to a new server.

Watching the Play Off final and cheering on Aston Villa, seems like they are on the way the premier league meaning Derby aren’t. Can’t be having the Rams promoted.

There’s probably some wonkiness that needs to fix, so if you see anything please let me know.

Updated the design of my blog so that it’s more in line with my new portfolio site. I’ve ended up switching to use more Indie Web post kinds to categorise content instead of the WordPress post formats.

Began to play around with the theme for my blog tonight, updating the colours etc so that things match my portfolio site. Sass really is awesome for that. Change a colour variable and it changes everywhere. Love it.

I forgot what the whole applying for jobs process was like, having to update profiles all over the web on various different websites which advertise jobs in the creative industries. Started to breathe some new life into my Dribbble account and actually start making use of Behance.

Discovered that an old folder action on my Mac has been running for ages and is in a loop creating new folders inside new folders! Trying to work out how to kill it!

Made some more progress on my portfolio site this weekend. I now have an about page and a contact page. New home page and some more projects should be coming in the next day or so.

Watched Avengers: Endgame (2019) – IMDb from IMDb

Directed by Anthony Russo, Joe Russo. With Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth. After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018), the universe is in ruins. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers assemble once more in order to undo Thanos’ actions and restore order to the universe.

Really enjoyed going to see Endgame tonight. I didn’t expect it to be so funny or so sad… definitely worth a watch if you haven’t seen it yet.

Adjusted my sass screen sizes to match Bootstrap 4 on a project. Couldn’t work out why on screen size everything was drastically broken… a screen size of 5768px would be the reason… 🤣

Decided to make the switch to Starling Bank today, for both my personal and business account. Linking and automating with YNAB and FreeAgent should hopefully help my aversion to admin…

The pain of being self-employed when there are public holidays and you have a couple of days off is never more apparent than when you do your monthly invoices.

Watched Avengers: Infinity War (2018) – IMDb from IMDb

Directed by Anthony Russo, Joe Russo. With Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans. The Avengers and their allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.

Finished watching Infinity War in preparation for going to see Endgame with a friend tomorrow night.
