Web development, interaction design and accessibility expert based in Yorkshire, UK

Hello! I’m a friendly front-end developer and interaction designerPlease see footnote[1] who specialises in web accessibility and beautiful, hand-coded online solutions.

Having worked in the digital industry for 15 years, I’ve gained an extensive knowledge of a variety of different programming languagesPlease see footnote[2] and industry best practices. I am able to offer an affordable end-to-end service, whatever your needs.

I’m comfortable using multiple content management systems, static site generators and e-commerce solutionsPlease see footnote[3]. I’m also happy to discuss any custom integrations you may need such as multilingual sites, online donations, social media or newsletters.

Every website I build is hand-coded and accessible. I always strive for WCAG 2.1 AAA but will deliver WCAG 2.1 AA as standardPlease see footnote[4].

I work with local designers and can provide a full end-to-end service, including server and hosting set-up, domain name registration and ongoing website maintenance. I will keep you informed throughout the process and build at several touch points, so you can be as involved in the project as you wish to be.

Footnote [1] Wondering what Interaction Design is? Ever heard industry buzz words like UX, UXD, UI, IA, UR and probably others too? They're all part of a group of skills that focus on working out what, where and how to display 'stuff' in any given web page, app, or smart toaster menu system. It's all the really hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make sure what you end up with is really easy to use for the broadest possible audience. Back to footnote reference Footnote [2] Programming languages I can work in: HTML5, XHTML, vanilla Javascript (including ES6 and newer syntax additions), React, CSS, SCSS, LESS, PostCSS, Twig, Liquid, Handlebars, Nunjucks, a little PHP, Smarty templates, YAML/YML, Markdown, JSON. If you're stuck with some old stuff, I can also work with jQuery - and convert it to something more modern for you in the process! Back to footnote reference Footnote [3] All links in this group open in a new window or tab. Content Management Systems, static site generators and e-commerce solututions I can work with: MODX, Grav, Drupal, Wordpress, Jekyll, Metalsmith, Kirby, Hugo, Shopify. This list isn't exhaustive, and I'm always looking for the Next Best Thing™ to work with. Back to footnote reference Footnote [4] Did you know that if you're a business or public sector body, it’s a legal requirement to ensure your site is accessible? Sound scary? It’s not, but it could be if you don’t do anything about it! You can have legal claims brought against you if you do not meet the minimum requirements - even Beyoncé (This link opens in a new window or tab) isn't immune. All websites should be built to work for everyone. Luckily for you, I’m pretty good at that sort of malarkey too. Everything I build is done with accessibility in mind. Back to footnote reference
