Neil Rudd Q&A
What makes a great website?
A great website isn't just about design, it's about a well thought out user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) which comprises of good iconography and typography. A good website also needs to be cleanly coded with care and attention given to any assets to help with performance and page load times, this is why I don't use Wordpress but instead hand code from scratch.

The website design stage is critical to deliver the desired story and is made up many elements from a well designed user interface (UI) to a rich user experience (UX) using well designed iconography and typography to provide a clean and easily navigable responsive website that looks good for all devices. As part of this design process I work with design software including Adobe Illustrator and Adobe XD to focus on adopting the latest in web design techniques and trends and utilising them to design a clean modern website that looks and performs well on large devices down to smaller mobile devices.
Single page applications
A single page application or SPA for short generally use a framework such as Angular, Vue or React to seamlessly deliver a collection of pages without the usual page reload when navigating from one page to the next like traditional websites. Although SPA’s can be used to build traditional websites, due to their more complex build they tend to be reserved for online services and applications. With both ASP.NET and the MEAN stack frameworks I have the required skills to design, develop and deliver a robust single page application.
Ecommerce / online stores
I have over two decades of ecommerce experience and have worked for many successful online stores ranging from boutique clothing and entertainment to gifts and jewellery. Although I can hand code online stores with full integration of a payment gateway I prefer to now utilise the Shopify ecommerce platform which provides a clean safe and secure shopping environment that can be tailored to suit any design.
