Howdy

My name is Damien Mason & I’m a freelance web & mobile developer, illustrator and designer.

I live in Bendigo, Australia with my wife Cheryl and two kids Oscar & Lily and our cat Max.

I'm also
  • some kind of ninja maybe
  • probably not in my pyjamas, I promise
  • like a modern day Don Draper but with less alcoholism
  • prepared for the zombie apocalypse
  • not the type of person who would spoil A Game of Thrones
  • a child of the 80s

Web Development

I specialise in front-end development, utilising HTML, CSS and jQuery to bring responsive websites to life.

Clients

I have worked with many design firms, including Good Dog Design, Good Stuff Partners, Green Scribble & Snapfire Design. Through those firms I have been able to work with such groups as the Australian Red Cross Blood Service, IndieGogo, Patagonia Provisions & Tata Communications.

Proficiencies

HTML & HAML, CSS, SASS & SCSS, jQuery & Javascript, Ruby on Rails, Actionscript 3, and structural frameworks such as Bootstrap.

Programs

Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Dreamweaver, and content management systems such as WordPress, Drupal, Wheelhouse, and Shopify

Mobile Development

I have built iOS and Android apps in Adobe Flash with Actionscript 3.

Wireframing

Development starts with wireframing. I love instructional design, and my experiences with this started by designing learning applications at Bendigo Senior Secondary College.

Designing

With a wireframe signed off, we can begin designing the screens and elements such as buttons, type styles and icons.

Building

Thanks to changes to Adobe Flash, I can now develop one file and export it to both iOS and Android, both phone and tablet. This speeds up development time greatly.

A very smart and driven flash developer, excellent problem solving skills and design knowledge, also works on tight deadlines extremely effectively. Highly recommended."

Dress your walls

I have a variety of fine art, canvas and framed prints, posters, cards, calendars, clocks and stickers available to buy.
Couch feeling lonely? How about some matching throw pillows.

Dress your tech

iDevice and Samsung Galaxy cases are available at my RedBubble Store. I've also got some Laptop and iPad skins and iPod and other tech cases at society6.

Dress yourself

Get my art on high quality American Apparel tees and hoodies. Embarrass your kids with matching clothes. I've also got tote bags and mugs.

Stop trying to control me! I am my own person!

Okay, okay, feel free to go and browse through the products at my RedBubble and society6 stores.

Damien is a fast worker, producing quality results which really bring life to a site. He's great to work with, both in a professional manner as well as enjoyable and humorous."

Hokushin Shinoh Ryu Iaido

I have studied Hokushin Shinoh Ryu Iaido for over a decade under Sei Shihan Goho Wonho Chong.

In 2009 I was awarded my Ni Dan and given the art name Go Seki 豪石. I began teaching later that year in Reynella, South Australia.

After we moved to Bendigo in 2013 I opened a Dojo here - Zen Shin Kan 禅神館.

In 2014 I was awarded Go Dan (Fifth Dan).
