User interface designer, developer and hardware tinkerer

Hello, my name is Bradley Taunt and this is my little piece of the internet. I’m a UI/UX designer obsessed with performance and accessibility. I also enjoy playing with (read: breaking) computer hardware – specifically single board computers and vintage electronics.

I believe in a free and open web, which is why I try to contribute as much as possible to the open source community and create my own libre software products. Every little bit helps.

This blog is a place for me to just dump my thoughts, ranging from design patterns, CSS hacks/demos, custom SBC builds, linux distros and even video games.

Articles written here are more or less for my own reference in the future – don’t take them so seriously. Some of my more popular and “customized” essays are listed below, if that’s your cup of tea.

Enjoy your stay!
