About This Site

This site is built with HTML5 and uses CSS for presentation, plus some extra behavioural enhancements using Prototype and Scriptaculous.

Behind the scenes is a custom backend built using the CodeIgniter framework, plus extensions from Jamie Rumbelow and Elliot Haughin.

Headings are typeset in Droid Sans and Droid Serif is used for text snippets (e.g. portfolio testimonials), both licensed through TypeKit.

This site was designed in Fireworks and built in Eclipse.
