My name is Justin Bird and I am a web developer. In my years of design and production work I have been fortunate to have been employed by SightSpeed, Native Instinct, Streamline Social and Propane Studio. My web work gravitates around Drupal and Wordpress CMS, mostly because of their flexibility and power and also their amazing community of developers.
In recent years the mobile and tablet market has dramatically exploded, forcing us designers to rethink our workflow entirely. Add to that the super fast development of browsers supporting the latest in CSS3 and HTML5. The result- responsive and adaptive design is becoming a must if you want to reach your users optimally across screens and devices. These techniques ensure the user receives the best experience for their device.
My current work focuses on these technologies where possible. While not all projects are appropriate for responsive and mobile first approaches, all can benefit from a degree of treatment in these areas. Reach out if you have any questions.Linkedin profile
