Welcome to Sara Soueidan’s FED studio.

Hello, I’m Sara. I’m an awards-winning freelance front-end Web developer and speaker based in Lebanon, working with companies across the globe. I partner with design teams to execute and build beautiful, progressive Web user interfaces and design systems, with a strong focus on responsive design, performance, and accessibility, using the latest front-end design techniques.

Sara doesn’t come without a price tag. But it's worth it.Up to date I have not worked with a freelancer so open-minded, innovative and not afraid to challenge client’s work as Sara. And best of all, it’s not just “talk”… but also “walk”.

Smashing Book 5: Real-Life Responsive Web Design

I co-authored a book on Responsive Web Design.

Smashing Book 5: Real-Life Responsive Web Design is a book that covers time-saving, practical techniques for crafting fast, maintainable and scalable responsive websites. I wrote an 80-pages long chapter about using SVG images in a Responsive Web Design workflow, including everything you need to know to get you up and running using SVG.

I also wrote 300+ entry-level articles in the Codrops CSS Reference—an extensive list of CSS articles—alphabetisized, categorized, structured and detailed. This is an extensive reference to the most important CSS properties and concepts, available for free, for all skills levels—beginner to advanced.

I also write about CSS, SVG and front-end development in general on my blog.

I speak and run workshops on front-end development at international events worldwide.

I run public workshops at international conferences, and provide custom workshops for clients on demand, currently focused on CSS and SVG. Learn more about these workshops in the Workshops page.

I've spoken and shared my experience at more than 25 international events in the last three years. Want to know where I’m speaking next? Check out my Speaking page.
