Why trust my brand with a random girl
I met on the internet?
Here you are, have a stalk…
Favourite TV programme: Road Wars / The Island with Bear Grylls
Education history: I studied ‘Business & Marketing Communications’ at Oxford Brookes University, from 2008-2012. I finished with a 2:1
Employment: I’m currently employed by Friday Media Group, as a Marketing Manager. Building websites is a side-job which funds my ASOS habit, (and which I really enjoy)!
A typical weekend: A long, pretty dog walk, a nice egg and bread based brunch, a clear mind, some prosecco
Favourite web design features: I’m a big fan of full-width websites, with an integrated text header that sits on top of a really sharp photography image. I’m starting to get more into using gradients and experimenting with bold, parallax imagery too!
Website pet hates: Poor spelling or grammar, low-quality images, obviously stocky images, titles that are boring and uninventive, words for the sake of them, meta-data that’s not optimised. The list could go on…
Favourite homepage: It changes every time I see a new homepage I prefer. But my most recently bookmarked homepage is this one, by 4 Rivers Smokehouse, although it conjures up scary page load speed nightmares with all the imagery of that mouth-watering food!
Favourite font: A long time fav’ of mine is Lato, in thin. Which, naturally, is the font I’ve chosen to use on this website! I also really like Abril Fatface, but it needs the right kind of brand to pull it off.
Least favourite font: I hate fonts where the letters are too close together – I find them so hard to read, and I think it’s super important to put usability over design in this scenario. As well as comic sans, of course!
