About— Let's get personal
This is the digital portfolio of Liam Morgan, a front-end developer and UI/UX designer from Hertford. Hello! I focus on designing engaging experiences for the responsive, accessible web.
I've previously worked with Elvis Communications, improving brand performance via websites and email for a variety of clients, including Corona, The Open and Honda. I'm currently freelancing, but looking to get back into full-time.
I've worked on responsive wireframes and prototyping for UI elements. Working closely with a UX team has provided me further opportunities to learn more about user research and journeys. I enjoy the process of UI/UX design. My current weapon of choice is Sketch!
How did you get here?
I could provide you with a metaphorical answer involving stars, evolution, and the number 42. But I won't.
I was introduced to coding through a home-grown, after school science club. Shown the basics by a friend, my interest took off and soon I was making 'choose you own adventure' games with code - albeit very short ones! I stuck with it over the years, slowly learning more, and watching the internet change as trends came and went. I ended up furthering my skills in university, got my BA in Digital Media Design, and leapt straight into the industry from there.
It was during this time that UX was really taking off. I realised all my technical doodles on the backs of envelopes and the corners of notebooks had a name and purpose, so that seemed the next natural step in my personal development!
Any other fun stuff?
Sure! When I'm not coding or designing, I can usually be found gaming. Games were a big part of my childhood, and that hasn't exactly changed now! Heck, I even managed to focus my dissertation around them.
I enjoy reading science fiction and fantasy novels, as well as comics. A big part of my love for drawing stems from comic books, alongside animation (both the film and television varieties!). Perhaps most importantly, I love a pie.
