I am 21 years old and have recently graduated from the University of Winchester with a 1st Class Honours; having studied Digital Media Development. This has inspired myself to seek a position, within an agency or company, that specialises in Front-end Website Development because I believe currently, this is my strongest asset as well as an area I have the most passion for.
From my time studying Digital Media Development, I was able to undertake a range of different projects which challenged myself in various ways. To view my work please visit my work page.
Interests and Hobbies
Other than having a strong enthusiasm for website development, I also love playing the drums. I have been drumming for approximately 8 years and have studied up to Grade 5 Rockschool drums, achieving qualifications in grades 1-4. Furthermore, during my time at the University of Winchester, I was a drummer for both a jazz band and a concert band, performing in different types of concerts for the university.
Another aspect I have an interest in is football. Despite not playing for a team, I am a huge Manchester United fan. I love to visit matches at least once a season and when not, I make sure I watch them on the TV.
Industry Work Experience
'OJO Solutions', Bradford-on-Avon
28th October - 29th November 2019
12-23 November 2018
I undertook many tasks which included making front-end page edits through the use of 'HTML' and 'CSS' and producing a fictitious clients partner page, allowing for filtering of clients by category via the use of 'WordPress'. I also undertook the task of creating a fictitious register and login system, allowing users to create an account as well as being able to log into their account and reset their password if forgotten. The technologies utilised for this were 'PHP', 'WordPress' and 'MySQL'. The final task that I undertook at ‘Coullweb’ was to create a landing page, utilising 'HTML' and 'CSS' to achieve this.
'The ICE Agency', Winchester
8-12 October 2018
Following designs provided by the company and demonstrating my approach, I undertook the task of creating both a home page and about page of an existing website. Utilised technologies included 'HTML' and 'CSS' with 'Flexbox' being adopted to help structure sections of each page. Furthermore, 'WordPress' was used to create ‘Page Templates’, allowing for custom-built web pages. The 'WordPress' plugin ‘Advanced Custom Fields’ was also utilised, enabling editing of certain fields on each page. In addition to this, I was introduced to other new areas including 'Gulp JS', 'Bitbucket', 'Sourcetree' and 'Emmet'.
