About rpm

rpm is the creative space of John Politowski. I first used the name in 1997 as an outlet to make flyers for nightclub events. Over time it evolved into design, photography and web development services.

I am a strong supporter of web standards and hand coding. This site was created in textmate using HTML5, CSS, JavaScript and PHP.

I design and develop iPhone app under the name Liquid Syntax.

This is rpm version 10.0
rpm is located in Brooklyn, New York City.


I have had designs featured in several books, most recently: Web Design in Easy Steps: 5th Edition by Sean McManus.

My work is also featured on the front page of csszengarden.com.

At the 2008 Event Apart conference, I had the honor (and surprise) of having my work in Jeffery Zeldman's (Happy Cog/Web Standards Project/A List Apart) presentation under the title "Creative Possibilities".
