I have a day job. I am a freelance designer and I trade at www.andrewbackhouse.design. I work with graphics and on websites – it is a good trade and keeps me busy. I seem to be working all of the hours I am allowed to work at the minute.

This Blog is kind of what taught me my trade – I have studied Graphic Design as an undergraduate and I can convert it to websites.

I also write up a bit about my music (career). That just keeps me in beer money. It is yet to cover costs and will probably never cover costs.

Still, web design – right laugh – I admit I am not too hot on approaching clients. I prefer to work on a site and see where it leads me. A user-centred approach is my strong point when it comes to design.

I am a fan of complex minimalism – hyper expressionist when it comes to copywriting. I have a maxim on this Blog to “Write Drunk, Edit Sober.”
