Nov 2011 - Dec 2012www.bravenewtalent.com
My initial responsibility was for the redesign and build of the Enterprise section of the site. Working from BDD’s and wireframes I coded the HTML and CSS.
I then worked across the whole site ensuring that our HTML and CSS was clean, concise and well structured, utilising Less to make our CSS as modular and re-useable as possible and model it on the 'OO' methodology of CSS. From a design perspective I regularly created wireframes using Balsamiq and designs using Photoshop for new features being added to the site.
