Andy Parker

Unicorn wrangler

Andy’s first site went live in 1999. Thanks to Tripod, the abomination is lost in the ether.

A believer in accessible web design, Andy is an evangelist for progressive enhancement and designing with content-first. He is passionate about developing prototypes for just about anything including furniture and is often found with a hacksaw rather than a keyboard.

At the end of 2014, Andy began speaking at conferences on designing with content-first and why progressive enahncement doesn’t start with front-end code, but in fact with the start of the project cycle.

Away from the office

Andy was a guitarist in Here There Be Monsters, they released two EPs and toured the UK and Central Europe before going into cryostasis in 2013. His passions revolve around live music, and motorbikes.
