Hello, I'm Brett Thurston. I'm a web designer/front end developer.

I work for a living turning passion into pixels.

HTML/CSS

Clean code is important to me. I strive to make my style sheets load as quickly and efficiently as possible.

BTW, class > ID.

JavaScript/jQuery

With JavaScript and jQuery, I can breath new life into layouts. Whether it's a simple fade in or a full blown application - I've got you covered. DRY coding is life!

Twitter Bootstrap

I love using Bootstrap to quickly layout responsive websites. This way we can focus on content and workflow to achieve a wonderful product.

Wordpress

25% of sites on the internet are hosted by Wordpress. It's a CMS that easily empowers clients to maintain their own site after the project is over.

Nicole Quinn Photography

Nicole Quinn is a Mobile born editorial photographer transplanted to Tacoma, WA. She was in need of a refresh for her portfolio website. Large, bold images and ease of use were her main requests. I was happy to deliver and then some. I also installed a blog so the Southern expat could discuss her favorite topic, food.

ASMS

The Alabama School of Math and Science is a highly esteemed residential high school located in the heart of midtown Mobile. Their focus is developing responsible leaders with exceptional students across the state of Alabama. The website was built on Wordpress. I was also fortunate to work on a new logo for them as well.

Bontreat

Bontreat is a personal project of mine. It’s a food blog that has walk through recipes, highlights of eateries along the Gulf Coast and food related news around the internet. I’ve always been a huge fan of cooking, but recently have buckled down on exploring the craft. This site documents that journey. It’s nice to come home from my day job and just work with my hands, while feeding my family and friends. It’s an absolute joy for me and encourage you to check it out.

Mobile Cryotherapy

Mobile Cryotherapy stands alone as the debut cryotherapy service for the Gulf Coast. MC was in need of a professional, chic website. They also needed a logo, but only had a few ideas in mind. We worked together and refined what they had and came up with the snowflake logo. The logo had to translate well to small and extra large applications (i.e. signage, billboards, etc…). Also, a semi-one page website makes it easy to use and accessible on all devices.

He Who Lives In Me

He Who Lives In Me is a personal blog I keep to write down my thoughts and meditations on my faith as a Christian. I wanted to have a place where I could keep a journal, but also encourage a community of discussion with believers and non-believers alike.

I'm Always Learning

Outside of my full time job, freelancing and family, I geek out on learning new Front End programming like JavaScript and jQuery. I'm enrolled at Treehouse and look forward in continuing my studies into Angular and React.
