I'm a multimedia designer and front-end web developer who specializes in creating cohesive and unified eye-catching interfaces and media. I have experience as a designer, developer and project manager in the media, publishing, advertising, IT & HR Research and fitness industries.
My passion lies in creating highly intuitive and eye-catching websites and applications. My favourite methodology is modular design. I create highly detailed and reusable assets for consistent and unified applications. I love crafting beautiful front-end code. I believe that really scaleable css (scss is my weapon of choice) is the foundation for a strong brand identity. The front-end and the design cannot exist independently. I create modular and reusable asset libraries from the front-end. I'm a sucker for efficiency and have spent hours researching how to create the perfect front-end architecture. In May 2016, I was invited to speak at ExplodeConf about creating reusable brand assets and patterns via your front-end architecture.
WHAT CAN I DO
Emily is a strong role model for the whole IT team to look up to. She has taken it upon herself to begin training in a Ruby Bootcamp course. By doing this, she is ensuring she can continue to “Deliver Extraordinary Value” to the company and our customers. Through this training she is putting the “dev” in “devsigner”, which will make it easier to design solutions and bring them to life.
She has recently displayed our core value of “Get Things Done” by working late many nights brainstorming, researching and mocking up a really impressive UI for an important project. She makes herself available to give detailed and helpful peer reviews on GitHub and is always looking to improve our project workflow.
Even after working late nights on projects and working through the Ruby course, she somehow found more time to donate to the Fundraisers. She volunteered to be the lead organizer for the Children’s Christmas party and did a great job pulling everything together; the event was a huge success. For all of these reasons, Emily was named Info-Tech’s “IT Person of the Month” for September 2014. I'll also note she was given the title February 2014 and December 2014, she's a hard worker and wonderful person to work with!
Emily’s in-depth knowledge of front-end development and best practices makes her an incredibly valuable member of our team at Info-Tech. When asked to complete tasks, she always dedicates whatever time necessary to complete design and front-end projects to a high degree. She is up to date with industry code standards and always writes beautiful, clean code. Aside from her dedication to her work, Emily also a great mentor for her peers, as she is always willing and eager to share her knowledge with others and help bring new people up to speed with company standards.
