About

I’m Luke Mitchell, A designer and developer. I’ve been doing both professionally since 2011. I’m currently living and working in Ipswich, UK.

Me

When I was at school I had no idea what I wanted to ‘do’ when I grew up. One day when sitting in another dull and uninspiring IT lesson I came across an old, compressed JPEG of a scan from a single page of a book.

Watching Words Move

The contents of ‘Watching Words Move’ had a strange effect on me. I was confused by the simplicity of the concept; basic manipulations on a neutral typeface somehow brought words to life. I spent the next year researching what this was, how I could learn to do it and how I could start a career doing the same.

Meanwhile I began scouring the internet for tutorials, snippets and examples of web development. I spent many weekends learning about and building crude table-based layouts in Dreamweaver. I slowly teaching myself to contribute to the web rather than just consume it.

After further years of study, failure, success and everything else. I find myself cursed with the ability to spot poor kerning from half a mile away. I also can’t help but delve into the source code of any site that catches my eye.
