About

Rob Wakeman

From a background in the music industry, including a few years as a professional musician, I made a transition into front-end web development.

With over 15 years commercial experience, I have worked with designers to produce websites for clients such as Tate, Central Saint Martins – UAL and Norwich University of the Arts.

Every project is unique and I love to solve problems that meet both business and user needs.

I help clients 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, Gulp, Git.

Always passionate and excited to learn new best practice, techniques and technology, I’ve recently enjoyed courses on Angular and Vue.
