Date:

Overview:

A simple and easy to use website to showcase the work of author and speaker John Higgins

Designed by myself and made from scratch in around two weeks using pure HTML and CSS (with one tiny bit of Javascript for a text effect). This was my first commission around six weeks after I started to learn how to code

Original Design of this Website

Date:

December 2021

Overview:

The first design of my portfolio website

Process:

The original design of this website that I put together after finishing my course and applying for my first web dev job. It was made around Christmas (hence the snowy theme) and I tried to show off as many different bits of JS and snazzy CSS effects as I could think of. For the second design (this one) I wanted something a lot simpler

What I'm up to

For the past 9 months I've been working full time at Active Consultancy in Esher

On an average day at work I can be:

Before and Beyond Web Dev

In my previous lives I worked as a carpenter and furniture maker, a restaurant manager and more. In 2021 I decided to retrain and teach myself how to code and I’ve never looked back. I love cooking and video games (most devs do I think you'll agree)

My aspirations for the future are to work my way up to being a senior developer, whether front or back end (or both!) I’m yet to decide. I also hope to get a cat!
