M I C H A E L - S T O N E . N E T

I am a graduate of Durham College's Contemporary Web Design program. Programming and coding are my focus, but I also enjoy bringing imagination to life: both in the realm of web design and development and in my free time. I go beyond static design and brain-dead programming coding to create something special. In a team I share my knowledge and expertise with others, tutoring and learning from them.

I am knowledgeable and proficient in HTML5, CSS3, Javascript and all aspects of graphic design supporting web development. As well, I have experience working with CMS solutions such as Joomla, JQuery and other advanced Javascript frameworks, and audio/visual integration. No new technology or innovation holds me back!

In my spare time, I enjoy playing and creating strategy games. Anything that requires thought and planning interests me. As well, I play in the North Durham Concert Band and perform major concerts twice a year, as well as parades and the Sunderland music festival. Any time I can't think, strategise or create feels wasteful.

The client required a website viewable on many platforms and devices, with a clean modern design. Integrated into the design were hints of real 'vintage'-style framed pictures, inter-meshed with the digital elements to create an attractive whole.

The website is built from the ground up to be fully responsive. It scales to any size of display and remains functional and elegant at all points.

The photo gallery is automatically generated using the Zenphoto content management system. This allows the client to quickly and easily update the gallery by themselves, without advanced technical knowledge.

The design for the North Durham Concert Band website needed to pleasant and easy to use from the first glance. A parchment and sheet-music are both thematically appropriate and light colours contrast well with dark text, highlights and visual dividers.

The site is fully responsive and collapses down to a small but easily read form on even the smallest device's screen.
