Responsive design

Responsive design

Gone are the days when a computer was seen as a luxury. Nowadays there are almost as many mobile phones (6.8 billion) as there are people on this earth (7 billion). So to keep up with the times, all of my websites and blogs are built with a responsive design - in other words they'll work on all devices. And work well.



DAVELOPMENT is the brainchild of Dave Blackmore - a self-taught web developer based in Napier, NZ. Originally from London, Dave moved to Wellington after meeting his now wife - a descendant from the sunny Hawke's Bay. After escaping the hustle and bustle of big city living, Dave settled into life in NZ and picked up a job in IT for a government department. Several years later, DAVELOPMENT was born. Outside of work, Dave has a passion for playing and watching sport - in particular football and hockey, and also enjoys food of any variety, especially if followed by up by a movie. Coffee is also high on the list, but that could be seen as a necessity rather than a hobby...
