Darren is the digital designer here at Real Life Digital. He handles our small to medium size projects from their very conception right through to implementing them in code on the final product. He loves pushing the boundaries using new HTML5 and CSS3 technologies. Darren's background is in print design and he has a knack for translating static pixel-perfect designs in to organic, responsive websites and applications. He is known around the office for his prominent beard, his insatiable thirst for decent beer (not in work hours), his passion for obscure hip-hop and his bizarre love affair with chilli sauce.
Julia is a very experienced product manager who has managed products for private sector companies such as Sony Music and Expedia as well as public sector organisations such as Surrey Police and small startups too. Deciding to adopt a more rural lifestyle away from the City, Julia joined Real Life Digital to work more closely with a diverse range of clients and projects, and to minimise her previous 2 hour (both ways!) commute into the smoke! When Julia's not defining, refining, pretotyping, and keeping us tightly focussed on our deadlines, you might find her touring the world in one of the many bands she sings and plays with, or at home in her recording studio bashing out some choons.
Julie is something of a converted technophobe; a passionate creative who has been dragged kicking and screaming in to the digital world!! Julie makes sure our solutions are easy to use and navigate. She has an eye for detail and makes sure we develop sites as clearly as possible for end users and site managers. Julie also maintains content for some of our clients' websites. When Julie isn't fighting off modern technology, she is a dance teacher and singer/songwriter who enjoys a bit of gardening!
