This is the portfolio of Tom Jardine-McNamara, freelance web developer based in Manchester. I bet he promised you coffee and cake. Good luck; he hasn't fed me in years. In return, I haunt his conscience daily and force him to work on socially responsible website and mobile app projects. Strange karma, but there you go. Besides, he enjoys it.
Yours, The Raven
I create websites & mobile apps. Here are some of my latest.
The Belize Zoo began in 1981 when Sharon Matola, out of money and out of a job, painted the words "Belize Zoo" on a piece of wood and rammed it into the dirt on the side of the highway. Her lettering is very distinctive, a sort of cross between the typography you might find on a Jimi Hendrix poster and the hurried scrawl of a written-on-the-day greetings card. Almost thirty-five years after the zoo opened, she still paints the odd sign, although they are mostly done by the maintenance team. All the signs, however, retain her signature lettering; it has become part of the zoo's identity.
I wanted to share the message of the power of the luxury of a couple of weeks free from the demands of clients, money, and reality in general. I didn't lock myself away in a log cabin somewhere; I used the same office I do every day. It was just that freedom to experiment and work at a different pace that allowed me to quickly crack a nut I'd long been hammering away at.
Element queries allow you to write layout rules for components that react to the size of the component's root element, rather than the viewport, meaning you can create components that are truly reusable and can be placed anywhere in a page's layout and "just work".
