Nick Day / Freelance web designer & developer based in Manchester, Cheshire & Altrincham specialising in Django
I'm an award-winning freelance web designer and developer based in Manchester. I design and develop simple, user-friendly and effective websites for small and medium sized businesses, offering a complete service from initial planning and research through to hosting and maintenance. I am also available for work at digital agencies throughout the North West.
"A diligent, committed and - most
importantly - highly talented developer...
I would recommend him without question."
"It would not be an understatement to say that Nick
is one of the most talented front-end developers
that I've ever had the pleasure to work with."
"I would recommend Nick to anyone who
needs a high-quality publication or website. He is
both very professional and highly personable."
"Nick was a great colleague to work with. He is
fast, accurate, innovative and solution-driven

UniVote / Interactive
UniVote is a interactive public voting system that I developed in the final year of my BSc Computer Science degree at Lancaster University. The system is designed to be used within universities to elicit student opinions on a wide variety of subjects, as well as keeping students informed of events happening throughout the campus. I presented this work at the British Human-Computer Interaction Conference in 2007 in my paper Breaking the Campus Bubble.
The system uses Java and Bluetooth to communicate between mobile phones and screens, with Director providing the front-end interface and a PHP web service connecting the different components together.
