    What is Kieran's SaaS Landing Page?

    This project is a modern landing page that I first designed myself using the design tool Figma before building it with code based off the design. In order to improve my skills as a front-end developer I wanted to start by designing the desktop version of the site so I could practice working from a specific set design.

    It is built for a fictional product that provides SaaS. The highlights of the landing page includes:

    • * Fully responsive design for small and large screens
    • * Across the board 100 scores in Lighthouse
    • * Less than 1s average page load time
    • * Hero, features, pricing, final call-to-action and footer sections

A little about myself

For making it this far

Hi there

I am a self taught front-end web developer who decided to change career paths away from electronic engineering in early 2019. I was looking for something to express my creative side in my work.

My time away

I was taking time out after graduating with my masters degree to travel, leaving the UK to live and work abroad in New Zealand for a year when I found my passion for web development.

Finding web development

After writing my first line of html I knew I was hooked and so set upon spending most of my free time reading, writing and learning all I could about code, specifically front-end web development.

Creative contribution

It's a special feeling when you are able to deploy a site to the web for anyone to see and use. That feeling of being able to contribute something even from the very beginning is unique and keeps me engaged and wanting to improve.
