Award Winning Web Developer

Jack Pritchard

Front-end Web Development

My primary passion in life is front-end website development.

I take pride in the fact I can turn any design put in front of me to functional interfaces that users can interact and navigate with.

I know the fundamentals of HTML, CSS and JavaScript but often use React as part of my tech-stack

Back-end Web Development

As well as front-end development expertise, I have broadened my skill set to include backend languages such as PHP and Node.js

Assisting the front-end of a website with data from bespoke APIs, I am able to take full control of any project and achieve specific requirements that a client may have.

Site Optimisation

Not only do websites that load slow creative negative experiences with digital products, but they also affect bottom line sales, SEO and damage business overall.

I take pride in optimising any and all of my products to load as quickly as possible, no matter the connection or device.

Website Design

With several years of experience in Adobe XD, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro and Lightroom.

It is safe to say I've got the knowledge to design a product that not only aesthetically pleases the eyes, but also a product that is usable to consumers.

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.
