Senior designer and developer

A Senior designer & developer with over 15 years experience in digital media & technologies. Currently working at KidDotCo. Previously as part of the Digital Design, Apps & UX team within the Digital Media department at MTV/Viacom.

Designing and developing is what I do best!

Currently working at my own company KidDotCo on personal and freelance projects. Previously as part of the Digital Design, Apps & UX team within the Digital Media department at MTV/Viacom. I’m a friendly approachable northerner who’s extremely motivated, adaptable & ambitious. I have big ideas but believe it’s all in down to execution, which I’d like to think is my forte.

Design

My background has always been in design, I’ve worked across print, websites, apps, tv and more. I’m interested in all aspects from creating visuals to these user experience.

Development

Although my roots are firmly planted in design I’m also very comfortable writing code too! In my previous roles at Channel 7 Media and MTV I’ve worked as a Flash designer and began writing applications in actionscript. From this my role at MTV became more mobile focused after building the first MTV News application for iOS devices. Since then I’ve never looked back and now I’m fully converse in objective-c and swift, but can find my way around css, html, php and more.

Specialties

Visual Communication, Web & Mobile UX, Design & Development.

What people say about me...

“Mike is an incredible iOS developer and all round great designer. Working with Mike for the past two years it is evident that his knowledge and expertise in current technological trends in the industry has benefit the MTV UK business a great deal as he has designed and single handedly built a number of apps.

From getting to know Mike over the last few years I have been amazed at how he has developed his career at MTV – he joined as a Flash Designer, then began to build new products in Xcode and became the Senior iOS Developer for MTV UK.

He has taught me a lot while at MTV, his calm and patient personality has made it easy to learn from him – to work with a developer who is willing to acknowledge the fact that not everyone understands technical jargon is something very difficult to come by.

I know Mike will be making some wonderful products in the near future and I hope to keep in touch with him to keep track of all his successes!”
