Ugly Duck

Who is Ugly Duck

If you’re reading this page, that means you want to know a little more than what I mention on the homepage. Thanks for your interest and curiosity!

I’m Bradley Taunt, a web designer/developer hybrid with over 10 years of professional experience across large enterprise application software, all the way down to mom-and-pop shops. I have a strong emphasis on building maintainable CSS, with a passion for accessibility and web performance. Ugly Duck is the name of my one-man web shop.

When I’m not pushing pixels or hacking up some code, you can find me experimenting with the latest CSS, splitting batches of firewood, cheering on the Ottawa Senators, or hanging out with my wife and our two sons. Feel free to also check out my reading list.

I’m a huge fan of video games in general but tend to get sucked into looter shooters and in-depth RPGs. Whenever I manage to get any “free time” (that’s a difficult thing to obtain with two kids under 3) you’ll find me grinding out power levels in Destiny 2 or being summoned for some jolly co-op in the Dark Souls trilogy.
