Hi, I'm Gareth, I'm a Mobile / Web Interaction Designer & Ruby on Rails Developer, currently based in Chicago, IL.
I find beauty in simplicity, as a result I love to design & build elegant & sophisticated brands that will stand the test of time.
My designs start from a sketch on paper and finish as a clean, responsive website.
I develop using Rails, a super fast, super powerful framework for the Ruby programming language.
All of the websites that I build will adapt to the screen size of device that they're viewed on (responsive).
Clarity - by focusing on the core goal(s) of a website, we can achieve a higher level of communication with the visitor.
I design to create patterns & pathways through content aimed at improving visitors ease of navigation.
