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.

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.

Trying a new coffee from a new roaster this morning. Absolutely delicious ok first taste, makes me want to kickstart my coffee blog again.

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.

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

Confession time, I’ve never once snoozed an email. I don’t understand why people want to snooze emails, if it needs acting on I turn it into a task and move on.

After unexpectedly discovering a work contract is coming to an end sooner than expected I made some more progress on my new portfolio site today. A couple of projects up with more to follow. If you know anyone who needs a new website or a designer to join the team let me know.

Anyone able to recommend an alternative to CodeKit for working with Sass locally? I’m fed up of it’s constant hanging and failing to compile after making changes, it makes for a frustrating experience.

I didn’t expect to be doing this on Thursday evening, but after a meeting on Friday I’m now unexpectedly looking for more work. My new CV is now online with . Expect to see a portfolio over the next week. If you know anyone who is looking for a designer let me know!

Despite my distrust of Google, I still find myself using Gmail for work email. It’s new schedule send function is absolutely brilliant, I think Apple Mail needs a native version of it in the next versions of iOS and macOS.

Starting to play around and appreciate the camera on the iPhone XS a bit more. Only had it a couple of weeks, but it’s a big jump from my iPhone 7.
