Freelance Web Design & Development

My name is Kirsty, I built my first website in 2005 and set up Tangled Frog Web Design in 2008. I'm based in Edinburgh and for the most part I work with SMEs, sole traders and charities, both in the UK and overseas.

I've spent recent years seeking out challenging and unusual projects wherever possible which has given me the opportunity to develop a wide range of skills, but to expand on these further I've enrolled on a degree course at Napier University and hope to graduate in 2019.

My core skills include HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, Javascript and Mootools, but since 2013 I've also been gaining experience working with jQuery, D3, C#, Java, Android development, GIT, Bootstrap, matte painting, video editing and online marketing.

All my websites are hand coded, accessible, search engine friendly and work consistently across all major browsers. More recently they are also mobile friendly and can be built with Bootstrap on request.
