About me...

Who are you?

Erm...have you not been paying attention at all? I'm Kerry Jackman, a Brighton based designer working with graphics, photography and the internet.

How long have you done this?

I've been involved with art and design for ten years now, in one form or another. I've explored many avenues including fine art, architecture, furniture design and graphic design. I find web design an inspiring mix of creativity and technical skills.

What else do you do?

As I've said I'm quite partial to a spot of photography, mainly places and landscapes but I'm beginning to edge towards photographing people. I make the odd piece of furniture as and when needed and I enjoy a break by riding around the streets of Brighton on my bike.

...and the site

What is this site?

This site is a place to display my portfolio, an advert for myself, a dairy of my life from here onwards and finally it's a bit of fun for me.

How does it all work?

The site is hand coded in XTHML strict 1.0 and CSS, with a sprinkling of PHP and just a pinch of JavaScript. I will knock up a separate, heavily commented XHTML/CSS file for any curious people out there.

Dude, something's not right...

If the site doesn't look right then you are probably using an older or non-standards compliant browser (ahem, Microsoft's Internet Explorer maybe?). Please stop what you're doing now and download Mozilla Firefox, it's free and only takes seconds to start using.

Pointless Trivia

I don't like having my picture taken.

I've a feeling my girlfriend thinks I'm a bit of a geek.

I used to have a scary, semi-beard and long pony-tailed hair...

I've spent hours making mix tapes for parties.

My first memorable pet was called Gizmo, I wonder what year that was then!
