After taking the decision to embark on a freelance career back in 2007, this portfolio has undergone a few name changes along the way and moved away from Creature to Pixel Stylist in October 2013.
Code and scripts
In an effort to cater for multiple web browsers and devices (it’s only fair that I practice what I preach), this site has been designed and built using responsive web design techniques.
Main resources and libraries include jQuery, Modernizr, Unveil.js, Isotope, CSS3 media queries, and cherry-picked elements from the Responsive Grid System and HTML5 Boilerplate (which includes bags of useful code from a rather splendid community of developers).
With a little help from IE8.js, I also deliver a functional, fixed-width version of this site for users of Internet Explorer 8 and above.
For the record, if you are using Internet Explorer 8… what the Hell are you? A dinosaur?! You should really consider upgrading to a modern web browser.
This site is powered by the self-hosted version of WordPress using my own custom-built WordPress theme (well… it’s what I do).
Typography and icons
The icon set used throughout this site is my own bespoke icon font, which I’ll be releasing as an open source download in the very near future. Body type is Noticia Text, an open source font served by Google Fonts.
Graphics were generated using my brain, pens, paper, crayons and Adobe CS6 (namely Photoshop and Illustrator).
All of the above softwares resides on my MacBook Pro, which sits on a knackered, old desk purchased from Ikea.
I am powered by Marmite on toast and coffee.
