My skillset is mostly in front-end implementation—HTML, CSS, light JavaScript—and WordPress development.

MetaFilter

After more than a decade with the same design, the venerable MetaFilter needed an update. Using prototypes started in 2008 as a starting point, I created a fully responsive design that leaves the core MetaFilter experience intact, makes the site more inviting to new users, and makes future maintenance easier.

Notes

  • I designed the mobile site myself—the original comps were for desktop only. I was able to extrapolate the design language into a mobile version that users have raved about.
  • The mobile design uses hardware-accelerated CSS animations; it’s fast, and feels like a native app.
  • Bandwidth and speed are a top priority—the site uses an inline SVG sprite for almost all of its images, scripts and CSS are minified and concatenated, and requests are kept to a minimum.
