Designing in the open

This page like much of this website is currently a work in progress. For anyone stumbling across this portfolio, they will likely see a largely complete design. But may find bugs and a lot incomplete bits of content.

It’s not a great reflection—but a busy life leads to slow but steady progress. Over the coming months, I hope to complete more portfolio & content pages, refine the poorer parts of the design and layouts.

Overall leading to a complete portfolio, with messaging that reflects my skill & ability to deliver you a wonderful website, that serves your customers.
