Alan Christie

Dublin, Ireland

Welcome! I'm Alan. I'm currently hoping to get work in the digital sphere as a UX Designer/Developer. I've just completed a Digital Media Production course at the Digital Skills Academy in Dublin.

The course covered User Centred Design and User Experience Design at its core with Digital Media Marketing, Web Communications, Graphics and Animation (Adobe Creative Suite), HTML5 and CSS3 with a focus on responsive design.

I originally come from a Computer Science and Statistics background. I moved into the events industry while studying Music Management at BCFE holding managerial positions at large festivals and events with MCD and Festival Republic including Oxegen, Slane and Electric Picnic. I've also spent time working with IMRO, the Irish Music Rights Organisation.

My love for digital has caught up with me again. The move to UX Design and Development has been an enjoyable and natural one. During my time at DSA I re-embraced my coding experience and was responsible for the design and development of the responsive web app iiiGuide for the Insurance Institute of Ireland.

The web app was built using HTML,CSS, Javascript with the JQuery Mobile framework and AJAX to dynamically populate content from the client's CMS.

I'm hoping to move forward with a well rounded skill set to provide end to end digital solutions from concept, to design, through to the final product.
