My name’s Jonathan (Jon) Reynolds and I’m a 30-something web developer from the UK. I’ve been involved in designing websites for over 15 years. I’m hired by clients for my expertise in CSS 3 and frontend development, and I excel in making compliant, graphics-heavy sites that are efficient, fast and responsive. I have a particular interest in responsive images and making sure sites look just as good on mobile and tablet as they do on desktop.
I pride myself on delivering a first-class product. Some of my client testimonials include:
- “Jonathan was crucial in the success of our website. His flexibility and first-class communication made working with him an absolute pleasure, and I wouldn’t hesitate to hire him again.” (responsive site, CSS, HTML)
- “Beyond impressed with Jon’s ability to develop websites. He had no problem at all with helping me create, fix and add things to my website. He also is very good at communicating.” (WordPress site with extensive CSS development)
- “Fantastic team player, he slotted into the existing dev team easily and produced consistently high-quality work. Definitely recommended.” (Major e-commerce site requiring extensive CSS and MySQL integration)
Away from work I enjoy playing and watching football, cooking, and I’m currently working on restoring the rather tatty 1984 mk1 VW Golf that’s been in my shed for 7 years and counting!
I believe in getting to know you, your business and your project in-depth, as this helps me deliver websites that work seamlessly with your organisation, rather than imposing my own ideologies. I believe that communication between client and developer is key to a project’s success, and I’m always open and transparent about how our project is progressing. I am happy to consider one-off, short-term or long-term projects, and I relish a challenge. If you think something can’t be done, let’s talk – I may well be able to change your mind!
If you are looking for someone to bolster your existing team, or to fill a temporary vacancy, I have plenty of experience of working within teams. I have worked closely with creatives, delivered briefings, taken part in concept development discussions, worked on digital UI and UX briefs from concept to completion, and have met with and presented to clients. I am comfortable both working with projects from inception and also being brought in late to fix or complete the work of others.
I’m used to working in agile environments using Scrum methodology, and I have led development teams in fast-paced, time-critical scenarios. During my time at university I participated successfully in several “game jams”, where small teams had to design, build and deliver a game with an unknown theme in less than 48 hours.
I’m currently based in the south east of the UK. While I usually work remotely, I am able to travel within the UK and Europe in order to spend time at your site, subject to negotiation. I am certainly prepared to consider projects of up 1 month’s duration where I am based at your location subject to travel and accommodation costs being covered.
I have worked for major businesses and tech startups, as well as not-for-profit and charitable organisations, and everything in between. My portfolio includes CSS and frontend development across many industry sectors. I’ve also taken on e-commerce projects involving Magento, Joomla and WordPress. I’m flexible enough to be able to take on any web design challenge you can throw at me.
My rates are negotiable, and I’m happy to work on either an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly rate. I’m certainly not the cheapest CSS developer you will find out there, but I’m a native English speaker with a deep understanding of modern development. I’m also a stickler for communication. This means that I believe that I represent excellent value for money. If you’d like to discuss your latest project then don’t hesitate to get in touch with me via the site.
Still not sure if I’m right for your project? I’m always happy to provide client and previous-employer references. In the meantime, here’s just a small selection of some of the websites I’ve developed, with an emphasis on my CSS 3 work:
