Bio: Mostly ex-WikiFoundry member who has spent the last two and a half years learning web design and application development. I now run Glimmer Studios (website coming soon) and perform web design as a paid service. I also have a series of applications, one of which is a web browser by the name of Serum.

Ex-WikiFoundry Central moderator, WPAds writer and active Golden Paint Cans judge (second year running).

During my two years on WikiFoundry, I have learned the platform top to bottom. Combine that with my experience as a freelance graphics, application and web designer, and you have a judge who knows exactly what to look for when analysing a website.

What I am looking for:

  • A professional logo
  • Fluent, intuitive and friendly layouts & formatting
  • Subtle, fixed colour scheme
  • Up-to-date content
  • Active, friendly and spam-free community
  • Carefully selected staff who know what they're doing
  • An amazing first impression (banner, home page, welcome message)
