Welcome to the online portfolio of Steven Roberts (BA)

Web and Digital Media Designer

I have a passion for technology and web design in particular, I have been making websites for about 13 years now, professionally for 5. It all started when I was around 14, I was in a band and decided we needed a website, I started researching web design tools and inevitably stumbled upon Fireworks and Dreamweaver.

Dreamweaver scared me at first so I stuck to using the slice method and had fireworks generate the code for me. I remember spending hours trying to figure out how to get a scroll bar onto a section of text and the amazing sense of accomplishment when I (finally) managed to do it.

I studied IT through out all of my education achieving a GNVQ in school, an AVCE in college and then graduating from university with a BA (2:1) in Creative Digital Media. Along the way I lost my fear of Dreamweaver and begun to enjoy the challenges of coding.

During my time at 360fusion I refined my skills in design, having created many public and private sector websites. While gaining knowledge of Mobile First and Responsive web design principles, as well as many other aspects of the web design industry.

Working as a Front End Web Developer over the last few months I have learned to refine my coding techniques. This has allowed me to expand my knowledge of; applying the BEM Methodology to HTML and CSS, Pre-Processors for CSS and Automation Tooling for production code (I prefer Gulp).

Since learning these techniques I have not had chance to update my portfolio website to reflect my new skills, I plan to do this as soon as possible, along with a new design and also a blog, within which I will be posting code, articles and other materials that other designers and developers may find useful.

I have a good understanding of User Experience(UX) and User Interface(UI) design and the challenges associated with both. I love designing web sites, creating the design and then making it come to life in the browser. I have recently started posting to codepen which you can find here.

I have also been in bands and played music for most of my adult life and I am currently working on some new recordings which will be posted soon. There is a link to my sound cloud page along with all of the other relevant social media pages below.


The following is a small sample of the work I have created over the last couple of years.
