I'm a front end developer with over 10 years experience. I've worked in various industries such as advertising, editorial, financial and start-ups. I'm interested in design systems, JAMstack, good DX/UX and under engineering.
Helping close the gap between designers and developers. How?
At Fathom I helped build and lead projects in the financial industry. These projects vary from stock trading applications to business consultancy software.
I was hired by News UK to lead the rebuild of the new The Times website. I worked alongside VD and UX designers, delivery managers, journalists and stakeholders to collaboratively come up with the new design and development process. I built the website using a component-driven approach. For more information, check out the case study I wrote about this project.
I was approached by Facebook to help them build a landing page for an Instagram campaign called Summer Toolkit. I worked directly with the delivery manager and their internal designer. My task was to take the design and build it in a mobile first approach. Additionally I also applied some other good practices such as progressive enhancement.
I was taken aboard to help facilitate the onboarding process for new business clients of Lloyds Bank. I was responsible for the user experience, UI design and development. My task was to implement a better UI/UX and use front end technologies to help the sign up process become much easier and faster for the users.
I was responsible for the front end architecture of the new Warp Records website, making sure the website is fully responsive, accessible, optimised and scalable. I focused on building a clean, re-usable and well documented framework so any future developers will have no problem picking it up if they need to.
During my time at R/GA, I worked on a large variety of their clients. I built simple static sites using tools such as Jekyll to scalable object-oriented platforms using frameworks such as AngularJS. I have also architectured and delivered detailed styleguides to clients, the latest one was for Google, where I led the front end development.
Being at Pod1 challenged my ability to be creative while dealing with all the constraints of the web platform and the client's brand. I am mainly working on fashion e-commerce websites powered by Magento and WordPress CMS websites. I have developed a better understanding of web design and digital thinking, as well as the opportunity to work alongside other creatives, the UX team, project managers and developers ensuring that all projects are of the highest standards throughout.
Working at Lighthouse Media Group broadened my knowledge in various departments, from web design to development which required skills in Adobe Photoshop, XHTML, CSS, jQuery, WordPress and multiple e-commerce platforms.
