Designer and Web Monkey
John founded Your Media Friend in 2008 after leaving his previous job developing Interactive TV services. He wanted to move away from the closed and slow pace of iTV and has embraced the exciting world of web development, a place where he believes anything is possible.
Having studied both engineering and graphic design, John is in the unusual position of not only being able to design beautiful and functional websites, he can also build them. This gives him an edge, allowing him to foresee possible designs issues early on in a project, understanding technical limitations whilst looking for alternative and innovative solutions.
His previous roles within the BBC New Media department, gave him a insight into audience/user behaviour. John created maquetes of interactive TV applications, which were then used to test functionality and usability. He is enthusiastic about the web and digital technology and passionate building websites and online applications that are functional and of real benefit to others.
As well as his interests in technology, John enjoys an analogue and rural lifestyle, photography and cooking.
