Michael Wignall - Web developer

Lead developer for Born Digital and music nerd based in Middlesbrough, UK.

I love Wordpress, Rails, HTML5, CSS & javascript.

Websites should load fast, easy to use and be accessible to everyone. Code should be simple, tested & DRY.


I'm proud of the work I do, here's a selection of some of it – all done through Born Digital unless stated otherwise.
