About

Rob WakemanFrom a background in the music industry, including a few years as a professional musician, I made a transition into frontend web development.

With over 15 years commercial experience, I’m now an accomplished frontend developer with a specialism in WordPress websites. I sometimes partner with designers, but also have a keen eye for design and how it serves the user experience.

Every project is unique, but in each, I focus on meeting both business and user needs.

I ensure client satisfaction by providing high quality work, delivered on time with excellent communication throughout a project.

“Rob has fantastic attention to detail and thoroughness in his approach, which I greatly appreciate. His technical knowledge and problem-solving abilities have been invaluable in meeting any request or challenge I have put to him, and in delivering a site that meets our needs.”

Client: Central Saint Martins – UAL

Languages and technologies used in projects include HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, WordPress, Bootstrap, Foundation, Sass, PHP, MySQL, npm, Git.

Always passionate and excited to learn new best practice, techniques and technology, I’m currently enjoying a course on Angular.
