I’m passionate about design and the web, specifically responsive web design, user interface design, typography and editorial design. I currently work for the amazing Vox Media as a front-end developer and designer. Previously, I founded Zohf Design, a small Philadelphia area design agency specializing in small business websites.
With all of the Flappy Bird success, a buddy and myself spent a weekend working on a variation of our own. We called it Ready Bird.
I put together a scalable iPhone 4/4s and iPhone 5 vector PSD, and figured I'd share it. Grab a copy below, and if you like it, please share (:
A simple animated CSS page loader, source code included.
The other day I did something I don't often do, and that's to browse the popular page on dribbble. I could tell a distinct difference between those designers with front-end knowledge, and those without. It got me thinking about my own experience over the last few years, and I took a look back at some of my previous work. I came to the conclusion that as my knowledge of front-end development and it's capabilities increased, my design skill in photoshop also increased. These two things, front-end development, and the ability to build pixel perfect mock-ups in photoshop, are wonderful skills to have individually, but when combined they become exponentially more powerful.
I set out this weekend to watch as much playoff football as possible, and I ended up watching none. I instead did something that I've wanted to do for a long time, and that's to build my personal site, for real this time. I wanted a place, moreso than a landing page, that I felt was a better representation of my style and my abilities as a designer and a front-end developer, and most importantly, a place I could gather my thoughts and jot them down.
