So far, you've met the head honcho Sean and creative Alex. This week, you meet our Technical Director Adam and Design Manager Kyle..
Adam Wilson - Technical Director
Fresh out of University with coding degree in hand, Adam started his working life in app development. But it wasn’t long before the fast-paced web industry seduced him and he joined us here at Red-Fern.
As our Technical Director, Adam loves nothing more than wallowing in oceans of code. And, because Red-Fern’s on the frontline of web development, he’s constantly learning. Our customers benefit from Adam’s evolving skill set with custom-built websites and innovative workflow software (ask Adam if you want to know what that means).
His current go-to tools are PHPstorm, Sequel Pro, Sublime Text, Sourcetree, Codekit, MYSQL, Workbench and Filezilla.
When Adam’s not surfing the cutting edge, he can be found at home binge-watching Game of Thrones or Netflix box set Daredevil.
Factoid alert: Visit our offices and you’ll recognise Adam from the left glove he wears in homage to King of Pop, Michael Jackson. But with his black belt in Ju Jitsu, we don’t argue about that.
Kyle Craven - Design Manager
A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing but in Kyle’s case, it kick-started a successful career in web design. With a little online help, Kyle taught himself to build websites. Starting with his Dad’s roofing company, he helped friends and family before developing enough experience for his role as Red-Fern’s Design Manager.
An average day starts by answering emails and reviewing project planning tool, Asana, to see what’s on. Afternoons are filled with larger project work, supported by design tool Sketch and Sublime Text for coding.
Despite being an ambitious self-starter, Kyle’s feet are firmly on the ground. In fact, one of Kyle’s favourite pastimes is moving his furniture around every six months. Which means in five years’ time, he expects to be sitting a little to the right of where he is now.
Kyle’s perfect night out would start with a strenuous round of his favourite sport, beer-pong, followed by throwing some shapes on the dance floor at the Warehouse Project.
Factoid alert: Kyle shares a trait with Henry Cavill (aka Superman). They both have heterochromia which means Kyle has one blue eye and one greeny-brown eye.
In next week's Meet The Red-Fern Team article, you will be meeting Studio Manager Emily-Jo and Web Designer Austin.
