About the Waiting Room Design Development

My name's Ali Lane, and I'm the man behind the waiting room. This site is my way of sharing a bit about me [Section 1.0], my work [Section 2.0], whilst occassionaly barfing on about design, development, music and whatever else takes my fancy [Section 3.0]. All the while, you can be shaking your hips to some top notch rock [Section 4.0].

I am a 26 year old web and graphic designer based in Edinburgh, Scotland, in charge of the digital output at H&A. I live with my girlfriend and dawgy in a lovely little 1 bed flat close to town, and I play rock and roll in To Catch a Thief.

If you'd like to get in touch check out Section 5.0, or follow me on twitter.

    Tenacious D - To Be the Best

    What's on the wireless

    Over the last 13 years I’ve played in more than 10 different bands and I thought it would be fun to list the main ones, and share every recording I’ve done in chronological order. Some were good, some were bad, and some were pretty funny - but I’ve had fun in all of them.

    • [1997 - 1998] - Wallflower
    • [2000 - 2001] - Detrepus
    • [2001 - 2002] - Coincide
    • [2003] - Misnoma
    • [2004 - 2006] - The Silent Revolution

    I know what you’re thinking. That looks more like a mouse, and I’m not sure I want to trust a mouse with my precious words. Rest assured, he’s a reliable chap and anything you give him will find its way to me.
