Front-end Development Skills
I write clean, semantic and accessible HTML which can easily be read by screen readers and search engines (and other developers!).
CSS (including SASS)
I use modern methods (like CSS Grid and Flexbox) with a wide knowledge of cross browser compatibility fixes for legacy browsers.
I can write custom functions as well as integrate trusted plugin libraries (such as Fancybox 3 and Slick Slider).
I'm also currently learning
Wordpress & ACF
I have an extensive knowledge of building lightweight, bespoke Wordpress websites with tailored page editors using Advanced Custom Fields.
For more complex server-side functionality like saving data to the database, triggering emails or generating PDFs.
Responsive Web Design
I have a solid understanding of Responsive Web Design concepts, mobile device usability and mobile browser quirks.
Page Speed Optimisation
I ensure all websites I build as lightweight and load fast, testing with Google Page Speed Insights and GTMetrix.
I can implement your designs from Illustrator, Photoshop or Sketch (using Invision) files.
It’s not only about technical skills. If you’re bringing a freelance web developer in on a project, then you want to make sure they will do what they say they will do and that they are an excellent communicator.
Of course I’d say I am a man of integrity who is great at communicating, but it sounds better if it comes from someone else.
