Front-end development is where designs come to life. It’s also an opportunity for designs to be refined, and user experiences optimized. Implementing designs helps uncover any accessibility and interactivity design issues these components may have.
Front-end development bridges the gap between a designer's vision and the user the designer designed for. A front-end developer is also the bridge between the design and the back-end. It is one of the most important phases of your project—making sure the live and interactive version of the design not only works as expected, but also adapts and responds to different, real-life user contexts with responsiveness, performance and inclusivity.
This is where my skills come in.
If you’re a company that cares about providing great user experiences to all users—regardless of their context or abilities, and are willing to invest in a great user experience established by a fast, inclusive web site or application, and you embrace the ever-changing nature of the Web and are willing to cater for it, then I'd love to help you with it.
I love working directly with designers. I think designers are inspiring. They push me to explore technical solutions out of the box, to come up with creative yet practical and usable techniques for their creative design ideas. I love collaborating and leading discussions with designers to build excellent user experiences that offer both visual eye candy and practical usability.
If that resonates with how you imagine your ideal design and front-end teams would work together, then I’d love to hear from you and join your team to build great products together.
Below is a quick overview of my current and future availability for front-end projects. Please do feel free to hit me up with details about your project even if it’s weeks ahead in time. That will give us extra time to get to know each other and figure out if we're a perfect match before the get go time.
Sara possesses a near-boundless curiosity, a peerless intellect, and some of the best communication skills I’ve seen in our industry. She’s also one of the finest, friendliest people I’ve ever met. I’ve watched her unpack gnarly, technical concepts in countless articles and conference talks, and I’m constantly awed at her ability to make even the most tangled specification more approachable to the rest of us. What’s more, it’s rare to find someone who cares equally deeply about accessibility and cutting-edge code; thankfully, Sara’s able to marry the two in everything she does, and artfully so.
Our industry is better for Sara’s work, her voice, and her passion. Heck, my work is better for her work. I’m proud to consider her a colleague, and would leap at the chance to collaborate with her on a project.—Ethan Marcotte, Designer & Author of “Responsive Web Design”
When you work with Sara, you get her vast knowledge of coding best practices, accessibility expertise, and cutting edge approaches. But you also get someone who cares about the overall health and quality of the work from every angle: user experience, visual design, usability, and much more. Sara’s the real deal.
