John Lewis & Partners
Great working with John, on a couple of websites now. He writes some very nice clean html/css/js to deliver the design as code that was easy to hook into the cms and programming code. Very quick and nice guy to work with, so you can rely on good code being passed your way.
Tristan Bailey, Freelance Web Developer
John is one of the most open minded Developers I have ever worked with. His appreciation of great creative work, his enthusiasm and 'anything is possible' attitude is always a breath of fresh air. I worked with him on several successful projects in our days at McCann Worldgroup. Since then we have collaborated on many freelance projects and he's always been super efficient and effective, combining a great work ethic with immense talent. If I ever had a creative digital project which needed bringing to life, John would be the first Developer I'd call on.
Mike Etheridge, Digital Art Director / Designer (Freelance)
I worked with John on a high profile fast paced project. John always approached the work with fresh eyes and enthusiasm. He was always seeking to improve his work in the face of a daily changing spec. Generally a great person to have on your team.
Andrew Lambert, PhD Candidate at City University London
John is extremely talented individual who I had the pleasure of working with at TMB. He has great technical skills coupled with an acute attention to detail. Furthermore John has very solid design skills too which meant you could expect pixel perfect translations of the designs you completed. Always helpful and willing to share knowledge regarding web trends and technologies, John is most importantly a great guy and one of the best ( and most accurate! ) developers I've had the pleasure of working with.
Jay Chan, Visual and User Interface Designer at ustwo™
John is a talented front-end developer with a broad-skillset. Wouldn't hesitate to work with him again.
Will McGugan, Python and Web Specialist
John. Easily one of the most talented front end developers I've worked with in my time. What makes him stand out it not just his enthusiasm and passion, nor his unflappable efficiency, but his knowledge and understanding on other software platforms, UX design, and elements of back-end development that ultimately makes him one of the most versatile, dynamic and forward-thinking developers in the industry to date. (A great laugh too, but that's just by-the-by)
David Mann, UX Strategist at Wilson Cooke
John's knowledge of front end technologies and of the pitfalls of the user journey make him a great resource to have around. Using John's jQuery, CSS, HTML, HTML5 skills (amongst others!) allowed us to develop great, interactive sites and applications with the creative flair that appeals to our clients and keeps them happy! John always managed to keep us informed of the latest technology shifts as well as new ways of reusing old technologies to the best effect.
Mike Percival, Technical Manager at Building Blocks (UK) Ltd
John is the best front end developer I've worked with. His knowledge on HTML and CSS is impeccable and he's always happy to help out and share his knowledge when his expertise is required. John's a great guy to work with and I have and will continue to recommend him to people who need someone who really knows what there doing.
Jo Portus, Interactive Developer at McCann Manchester
John was an excellent member of our team. Always ready with a solution to difficult problems and capable of following instructions our working without detailed guidance.
Nik Lever, Owner, Catalyst Pictures Ltd
Christian Duncan, Senior Front End Developer at HAVAS LYNX
John truly is a pleasure to work with, with a vast knowledge and good understanding he was able to help direct my design work so we could complete a project to the best of its ability. He is not only quick, efficient and multi-talented, he's a really good person with loads of potential for the future. Highly recommended.
Isaac Stott, Senior Designer at Hope for Justice
John is a real pleasure to work with, incredibly fast and has a great attention for detail. He has helped me out on numerous web projects with no effort at all. I would highly recommend him.
Rachel Barker, Independent Graphic Design Professional
John is a highly intelligent and truly senior front-end web developer, who's surprisingly well versed in the arcana of CSS. For Macmillan he was initially churning out static templates on an SCSS BEM architecture, but soon moved on to managing the team (three developers), assigning and tracking tasks using a Trello board he introduced, and helping me nudge the team towards an integrated, Web Components based production pipeline. I enjoyed John's productivity and attitude, and I very much look forward to working together again.
