What I Do

I build, maintain and provide support for websites, mostly in Wordpress. I use Bootstrap 4 a lot but I am happy in other frameworks or just working in straight HTML5. I’ve been using Adobe products for 20 years and currently use Xd for most of my UI work.

In addition to Wordpress I have built sites in Perch, customised Shopify themes as well working on numerous custom CMS’s. Back in the day I coded many a HTML email and even the odd Tumblr theme.

HTML5/CSS3/
JAVASCRIPT

It goes without saying that coding is at heart of my day to day work and I’m always looking to refine and improve on every project. Everything is clean, semantic and commented throughout. I make sure anyone can pick up from where I leave off if working in a team.

Wordpress Development

Wordpress is at the core of most of the work I do. I have been building Wordpress themes since around 2008 and it is still most client's first choice for content management. I also provide regular support for clients wanting help with updates and security. See here for more information.

USER INTERFACE (UI) DESIGN

I have been designing sites for the last decade, for clients selling online, promoting their ideas or products or for the cultural sector. I focus mainly on UI design now, adding to or refining existing designs or creating icons when required.

BOOTSTRAP DEVELOPMENT

I started using Bootstrap 3 soon after it's launch and continue to use Bootstrap 4 today as it can be taken over by any developer in the future. I’m happy working on other frameworks though if required.

SHOPIFY DEVELOPMENT

Over the past few years I have worked on modifying a number of Shopify themes to create bespoke ecommerce sites. Shopify's ease of use is ideal for many clients wishing to get started on ecommerce. I have a number of years experience working on this platform.

Cross Browser/Device Testing

At the end of any project comes testing. I generally use a mix of physical hardware and simulated testing via Browser Stack to ensure a seamless cross browser/device experience.

Testimonials

Pete did a beautiful job of our website. Build by hand without any WordPress or CMS system was our brief and he delivered a lean, slick site that makes the most of our photography and really helps the building shine. It also ranked 99/100 on the speed tests :)

Chris Tebb, The Blacksmiths

We've used Pete for a number of jobs that we needed outside expertise to complete. Pete planned, communicated and executed all of the requests without a hitch, and debugged any issues we were having. The results are exactly what we were looking for, and I've been recommending Every Last Pixel since our first job was completed.

About
Pete

I have spent the last 10 years designing and building websites for clients across the UK, both directly or when brought in to work as part of a larger team. These clients range widely from bespoke ecommerce builds to white label services for design agencies. In the past I have built web applications for The Lowry and National Football Museum as well as websites for numerous online retailers, design agencies and SME’s. In this time I also taught 20 days per year at the University of Salford teaching web design to students on the Graphic Design Degree course.

My key skills are centred around providing bespoke Wordpress sites, building themes or features that do not currently exist 'out-of-the-box'. I am able to use my UI Design skills to either work alongside designers on full website builds or develop new sections or functionality based on existing designs. Most of all I speak plain English and appreciate that not everyone lives in a web development bubble!
