Front-end Development Skills

HTML

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.

jQuery

I can write custom functions as well as integrate trusted plugin libraries (such as Fancybox 3 and Slick Slider).
I'm also currently learning
Javascript ES6.

Wordpress & ACF

I have an extensive knowledge of building lightweight, bespoke Wordpress websites with tailored page editors using Advanced Custom Fields.

PHP

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.

Design Flexibility

I can implement your designs from Illustrator, Photoshop or Sketch (using Invision) files.
