I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

Building a New Photography Workflow With the iPad Pro ›

Drew Coff­man has some inter­est­ing obser­va­tions in the open­ing para­graphs of his arti­cle about Build­ing a New Pho­tog­ra­phy Work­flow with the iPad Pro.

“I’m just now real­iz­ing that the more and more I embrace each cre­ative process, the less time I want to give to any­thing but the act of creating” 

So often we change things because we think we should, but in actu­al­i­ty we should only real­ly make changes in work­flows and apps we use with moti­va­tion sim­i­lar to the above. To free us up to cre­ate more things.
I like my blog, I enjoy it from many angles, from cre­at­ing the design to post­ing to it reg­u­lar­ly. But on reflec­tion I realise that the thing I dis­like the most is edit­ing and feel­ing the pres­sure to write well. I just enjoy post­ing or my blog, and I enjoy read­ing arti­cles and shar­ing the ones which I think are most inter­est­ing. Hence why my post­ing rate has increased since I made it eas­i­er to share an arti­cle to my blog from my iPad or my iPhone. The change in work­flow has allowed me to do more of the thing I most enjoy about my blog.

The Importance of Sensibility in Designers and Developers ›

Just dip your toe in, you might like the insane rush of build­ing stuff

For a long time I’ve want­ed to do more work on the Inter­net, I’ve always con­sid­ered myself able to design and build some­thing but not had many oppor­tu­ni­ties to put that con­sid­er­a­tion in to prac­tise. Now that I’m work­ing for myself, I’m expe­ri­enc­ing this first hand, my biggest job at the moment is redesign­ing and build­ing a web­site. It’s not sta­t­ic and I’m find­ing more and more the expe­ri­ence is forc­ing me to grow and that rush of build­ing some­thing with­out hard cod­ing it into the theme files is brilliant!
