About Alexander Blackman

Me doing a knife-hand guarding block

I’m a lead designer and front-end developer who loves making digital products.

I work at Blue House Design, where I help clients improve the customer experience of their products and provide essential services.

My work covers the big picture as well as the fine detail:

  • defining requirements
  • design research
  • visual design and prototyping
  • reviewing and testing code
  • managing clients and projects

Before web design

For six years I cut my teeth at a reseller that specialised in automated ID technology.

I worked in all areas of the business including marketing, hardware and software technical support, software development and sales. I also wrote the company’s first Quality Management System.

Prior to that I worked for two years as a Taekwon-Do instructor. I taught classes to children – including early years – and adults across Kent and Sussex.

Outside work

I am a volunteer coach at Codebar helping under-represented people learn web technology.

I have a second degree black belt in Taekwon-Do and am a proud member of the Labour party.
