Legit UX/UI Designer & Front End Developer.

I'm looking to 'degrade gracefully' and work in a team oozing with passion.

Hi, I'm Simon Whittaker

I have a degree in Graphic Design from AAA School of Advertising. I spent time flexing my entrepreneurial muscles growing a digital agency in Cape Town, South Africa. I recently completed a 12 week web development course at Makers Academy.

I'm looking for full time employment in a skilled team, building software that enriches and improves people's lives. I'm currently living in London, United Kingdom

I create stunning, flexible and lightning fast experiences.

HTML, CSS & Javascript

I've recently immersed myself in 'zero's' and 'ones' on my journey to becoming a full stack front end developer.
!important I like to markup my designs in semantic HTML and CSS, whilst progressively enhancing the experience through javascript.

Everything is design. Everything!

Aesthetic style is a non-negotiable. I have immense appreciation for all things beautiful and in divine proportion. Design decisions are made for benefit of the end user. If it's not serving a purpose, it's fluff.
