Award Winning Web Developer

Jack Pritchard

New CV, Who dis?

Good Evening, I'm Jack Pritchard, a passionate front-end website developer.

I want to improve how businesses present themselves in the form of brand development and design.

Born and raised in Swansea, I came to the South of England to complete studies in Website Design and Development where I graduated with a 1:1 on my undergraduate course.

I’ve now returned to my studies with a focus on growing my business, continuning my studies on a post-graduate MA Creative Enterprise course.

It's a fancy way of saying advanced business studies.

My primary focus is website development, specifically front-end web technologies and implementing the latest frameworks to create bespoke solutions to solve business problems.

I have experience in HTML, CSS, SCSS, JavaScript, jQuery, React, PHP, WordPress, Gatsby.

Heck this site is built with most of those!

Although I have experience creating bespoke backend systems, my true passion lies in the front-end development. Turning designs into functional pages that represent brands or enable users to make use of web applications.
