Hi there 👋

My name is Kev, during the day I work in the Information Security industry, but I also enjoy web design. So this GitHub account lists the personal projects that I have.

Simple.css

Simple.css is a CSS framework that has been designed to make semantic HTML looks great, right out of the box. You can see a full demo of what Simple.css can accomplish on a site here.

I've also written a very verbose guide on how to setup a Jekyll site using Simple.css. You can find that post right here.

512KB Club

The 512KB Club is a collection of performance-focused web pages from across the Internet. The one and only rule for a web page to qualify as a member is...

The total UNCOMPRESSED web resources on your homepage must not exceed 512KB.

The internet has become a bloated mess. Massive javascript libraries, countless client-side queries and overly complex frontend frameworks are par for the course these days.

When online newspapers like The Guardian are over 4MB in size, you know there's a problem. Why does an online newspaper need to be over 4MB in size? It's crazy.

But we can make a difference - all it takes is some optimisation. Do you really need that extra piece of JavaScript? Does your WordPress site need a theme that adds lots of functionality you're never going to use? Are those huge custom fonts really needed? Are your images optimised for the web?

Buy me a coffee. I love coffee, it keeps me going most days, so buying me a coffee now and then would be really appreciated.
