About

Designing and building websites since Flash intros were cool

Ally is a digital designer that has worked with a host of companies from multi-nationals to start-ups creating products ranging from responsive websites to digital marketing material.

He was inspired ever since seeing Flash intros and the days of animated under construction banners in the late 90s/early00s and began designing websites and playing with Front Page and Dreamweaver in his spare time.

As Ally started his career in print and graphic design he has a clear passion for typography alongside clean and minimal design which is showcased in his work. User experience is core to the work Ally produces and he has a solid understanding that the product he designs needs to be useable and meet both user and stakeholder goals as well as being visually pleasing.

In his spare time Ally stays-up-date with the latest design trends as well as practicing the latest coding techniques which he reguarly posts along with his design ideas on his social media channels to gain feedback from the community. A strong interest in typography and letterpress along with music, art, reading, and street food consume the rest of his free time.

From startups to multinationals, I have had the pleasure of working with some amazing people.

Currently working at WLT Ally produces a collection of digital products for Bank of America Merrill Lynch based onsite at the in-house creative studio of their London headquarters. Ranging from landing pages, microsites, responsive websites, digital marketing material, software UIs, social media graphics and display screens.

He has worked with the likes of Barclays, Secret Sales, Nuffield Health, MBNA, and Bank of America. Unfortunately working within the financial sector poses a problem as all of the work he produces on a day–to–day basis is under an NDA.

Due to this Ally has shown a proactive approach by taking on side projects, contributing to Mozilla, as well as participating in online design briefs to increase the number and type of project he can showcase.

Below is a selection of recent work he has created providing an insight in to his design process as well as showcasing layouts that respond to the multitude of todays devices.
