Details

It started with an interest in 2010 whilst living in Germany. That interest, lead to training with front-end design, HTML, CSS and JavaScript at City College Brighton with Kevin Halsall (also of the Farm) for a period of two years followed by back-end development, Java and PHP at post graduate level at the University of Sussex.

I work for individual clients as well as large organisations. I also teach small groups of long-term unemployed JavaScript (JS). However with ever changing code developments I have returned to university to read UX (user experience) and even more JS.

Clients say that my work is expert. I specialise in getting a business seen. For example, the correct behind the scenes code. The correct colour scheme and SEO (search engine optimisation). I am trained in Argil , therefore keeping all in the loop!

Front-end design:
I re-design pre-built frameworks such as WordPress, Bootstrap and Foundation. I also use ‘raw code’ and design on request, websites from HTML5 and CSS3 and JavaScript for interactivity. Ecommerce websites are a speciality allowing your business to buy and sell on-line.

Back-end design:
I have developed simple game frameworks using Java and also an interactive probability game use PHP. I am expert in JS.

Responsive:
I have designed a tool to allow a website to function on all devices. At this stage of development, some responsive pre-built packages do not allow truly responsiveness.

SEO and marketing:
Without good and proper SEO and marketing your website will sit amongst the 1000’s of unseen websites. I will apply appropriate SEO and when necessary, advise other appropriate SEO organisations.

Teaching:
I have taught in Germany ‘begabte Kinder’ (gifted children) front-end design. I teach long-term unemployed how to make a website from scratch with HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

Sharing:
If I do not know ‘how to’ then I will refer you to someone that does! …

Some recent examples of my work:

Glyndebourne Opera actor – This is a front-end website designed with raw code. It is responsive with additional JavaScript and PHP. The website was designed with SEO in mind and receives an incredible amount of visits each day.

Physiotherapy – Re-design – This is a front-end design in WordPress. It is again responsive with additional JavaScript and PHP. The SEO is specific to a post code of 30 miles.

National Bee Charity – This is front-end design in ‘raw code’. It is again responsive with additional JavaScript and PHP.

Probability game – A mathematics professor at the University of Sussex asked me to create an on-line probability tool. This is linked to my personal website keith-smith.co.uk. The game is used by undergraduates as an example of probability theory.

What else!
I believe strongly that to develop good skills that we need to share ideas combined with fitness. An unusual combination – you might say – I enjoy keeping myself in trim by walking and cycling. I also enjoy discussing ideas, concepts and new opportunities.
