I am a Wellington based Web and User Experienced Designer.

Outside of Yoobee I am also a freelance designer. I have worked with a wide range of clients, all asking for different types of websites as well as different types of programming langauges and software. I have worked as a Design Intern and Contract Developer for Little Yellow Bird. They are a company which manufactures ethically made work attire. I was taked with creating their online store using a custom Shopify Theme as well as adding in additional functionality to their site.
The Medicial Research Institute of New Zealand is another client of mine, having redesigned their website by creating them a custom Wordpress Theme, helps them show off the work which they are doing as well as keeping people up to date with new medical research tests which they recruiting for.
Other companies I have done some work for include, Creative HQ, Grow Wellington, The Wellington Boys and Girls Institute, Breadcrumbs and I am currently working with the Wellington Health Tech Network in developing a website to help show their networking events which they are holding.

Stopwatch

As a class project, I tasked the students to create their own stopwatch app using ReactJS. I decided to also do one myself but use a different design than a normal stopwatch. As well as the timer going up, there is a minutes and seconds radial clock around it which goes with the time. It was a fun little project which I really enjoyed using ReactJS for.
