Psssssst! You're still using a really old version of Internet Explorer. It'd be a good idea to download and install Mozilla's Firefox or Google's Chrome web browser. They're both free, quicker, easier and more secure than what you're using at the moment. It'll make all websites look better too. Microsoft has begged users not to use it anymore (and they made it!), the German government has warned all Deutshclanders not to use it, Microsoft doesn't support it... can you see where I'm coming from now? Feel free to ignore this but I wouldn't buy anything from a site while using it, it's just not safe. For more information go and have a look at Browse Happy.

About me

A short history, biography and description of the designer

My name as you've probably gathered by now is Chris Ward. I grew up in the West Midlands and then went to Uni in the East Midlands before being drawn to the bright lights of the London where I currently live and work. I'm equally adept at that whole front-end development malarky and designing for the web so you might call me a web designer/front-end developer.

I also dabble in print work, logo design, branding, icons and SEO too. I've even made a font or two (two exactly if you want to be pernickety) but prefer the UI design and development side of things. I'm well versed in HTML (both X and 5), CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, Flash, ActionScript and all the other standards tools of the trade and have used a ridiculous number of CMS' in my time. From a design point of view I'm highly proficient in all of the relevant Adobe Creative Suite applications (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Flash, Fireworks etc.)

I have produced work for many different folk and have been doing this professionally for a grand total of 0.77 (ish) decades. Before that I attended Nottingham Trent University where I completed a Bsc (Hons.) in Multimedia Production.

I am a big advocate of using web standards to keep the web as healthy and accessible as possible. I'm also a big proponent of open source software.

Feel free to contact me via email or using the details in my 'contact' section (just click on 'contact' in the top nav bar or on any of the content on the right) or if you want to see some examples of my work then go an have a look at my 'work' section (just click on 'work' in the top nav bar or on any of the content on the left).

N.B. Please note the guy in the picture above is not me. I am a British web designer born in the early 80's, he was an American baseball player in the 70's. We are both left handed. He is taller than me. I know very little about baseball except that it involves a lot of statistics and that if you build it they will come.

If you would like to find out more about that Chris Ward please have a look at his page on Wikipedia or at FanGraphs if you're into that sabermetrics kind of thing (yeah I watched Moneyball). If you want a website though, then you probably want to talk to me not him.
