Hey, I'm Adam Collier

A designer and developer from Manchester, UK. Instead of the traditional portfolio site that never gets updated I wanted to make something functional, practical and useful in my day to day. It will exist as an ever growing repository of ideas, productivity helpers and things I enjoy. Something noteworthy I should add? DM me on Twitter.
