About Pixel Devils. (Vaguely) interesting stuff about us!

Hi, I’m Richard Payne - thanks for dropping in!
I grew up in the Lake District and Isle of Wight before studying degrees in Manchester and Huddersfield.
I have 10 years experience as a web designer and interface developer, with a passion for clean, usable sites that deliver.

A little more about our dastardly deeds to date!

I'm an experienced Web Designer and Front-End Developer who has a passion for user-focused design.
I specialise in creating usable and aesthetically pleasing designs using XHTML, CSS and Javascript libraries.

Having regularly seen many people over-charged for sub-standard web design, I try to keep my prices as competitive as possible whilst maintaining the highest standards of quality and service.

I'm proud of the work I produce. My clients are too!
