New site (WIP)

I spent a little time last night working up a refresh of my portfolio site. It’s certainly a work-in-progress, you’ll notice I haven’t completed all of my project archive so far, but as time permits I’ll look to add more screenshots and detail to projects I’ve worked on in the past.

I’ve not only re-designed the site, but I’ve also rolled it up into a template for WordPress, so all being well I will write more on here – around topics such as Mobile Strategy, Mobile Development, iOS & Android programming and the frameworks PhoneGap and Appcelerator.

This site re-fresh makes use of HTML 5 Boilerplate and Twitter Bootstrap.

Over the coming days I will make improvements to the Responsive layouts, particularly within the Projects section and when I’m happy with it I will rebuild the site using the build process of html5bp.
