Andrew is one of our Web Developers, and this week marks his two year anniversary with HyperWeb. Andrew’s hard work, dedication, and commitment shines has contributed greatly to our growth and results over the last two years. He has worked on some of our larger projects, some of which he mentions below.
We asked Andrew a few questions about his time here at HyperWeb, what a typical workday looks like, and what he enjoys doing in his spare time.
What have you enjoyed most about your time at HyperWeb so far?
My own parking space! But seriously, the variety of tasks has been great, the mix of designing, coding & problem solving is very fulfilling.
What do you do at HyperWeb?
A typical day can range from designing a site from scratch, working from another designer’s vision to make their site a reality, coding custom functionality for a site, supporting clients, optimising sites, design work in PhotoShop & content entry.
What is something that people from work might not know about you?
I’m a big fan of talking parrots & unsolved mysteries.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
When I’m not procrastinating on things around the house, you’ll find me running at the park, playing video games, tinkering with electronics & hanging out with friends & family.
If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
Salvador Dalí, famous for creating the Surrealist art style (among other things) at a time when his contemporaries were painting realistic subjects, he dared to do something very unusual.
What have been some of your standout projects while working here at HyperWeb?
- Hunter Care Group:
A great custom design that fits their brand, looks super clean/ modern & has some fun custom functionary around their Supported Independent Living Properties listing page.
- Sydney University Sport & Fitness – a huge project that looks great, it came as a result from another project I worked on – Sydney University Athletics Club.
– https://suac.org and https://susf.com.au
- METS Thrive:
A questionnaire with a design based on their current site with a lot of custom functionality. After the questionnaire is finished the participate is shown a chart of how they did & is emailed a PDF report containing an in-depth response to each of the questions asked with charts visualising how they did.
- Tyrrell’s Wines – Membership forms:
These forms are for members to order a subscription for the delivery of wine & needed custom functionality to enforce quantities.
What is the biggest misconception people have about your job?
Probably that it’s ‘easy’, the web has changed so much in the last 10 years & will continue to get more & more intricate as new technology & our infatuation with the web gets stronger & stronger.
