Phil Thompson is a freelance front-end (UI) developer living & working in London.

Services

A front-end developer (or a UI developer) takes website designs (artwork) usually created with Photoshop or Illustrator and converts that artwork into HTML templates using CSS and JavaScript. Front-end development work is just one part of the process; other parts include Back-end development, UX, Planning and Project Management and that’s just for starters.

Development process

Phil Thompson builds HTML templates along with CSS and JavaScript making use of Sass and Grunt; using BEM syntax for his CSS as well as alphabetising his attributes and making sure his JavaScript passes JSLint.

Phil is an excellent communicator. I am always confident that he will deliver what I’ve asked (and then some) on time and at the agreed price. He’s a clever developer who cares about usability both from a front end and back office point of view. Oh, and he builds websites exactly how they’ve been designed!
