“Good design is as little as possible. Less, but better, because it concentrates on the essential aspects, and the products are not burdened with non-essentials. Back to purity, back to simplicity.”
Hi! I’m Rofikul Shahin. Welcome to my portfolio.
I’m a web developer / UI/UX engineer who is currently based in Huddersfield, England. I’m also one of the lead front-end developer at Pixel Kicks, a Manchester creative digital agency.
As a self-proclaimed, self-taught web designer and developer, I have accumulated over 10 years of experience designing and developing for the web. I’d like to think that I’m a WordPress specialist but given what WordPress can do, I’m still learning and making new things with WordPress everyday!
Although my core expertise lie in web design and development, I have extensive experience in designing logos and identities as well – mostly using Adobe products, e.g. Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, and After Effects.
I have an immense love for designing simple and functional websites that use strong typography and clean structure, which probably evident by this website. I believe in first impressions which is what drives me to design striking landing pages that encourage people to explore the rest of a website.
“I strive for two things in design: simplicity and clarity. Great design is born of those two things.”― Lindon Leader
My passion for building websites comes from the early days of internet that primarily made the person who I am today. Every bit of expertise that I have today was shaped by tutorials and documentation, fun portals found on the internet of the early 2000s. My attept at diving into web development came from the yearning to build something better than what was available, what was current. Which is something I still hold onto to this day.
In my spare time, I enjoy experimenting with new languages, libraries, and frameworks. Ocassionally, I document these experiments, and blog about other musings. My current favourites are AngularJS, Magento and Python.
