Why should you hire me?

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want... But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career.Liam Neeson


Using HTML5, CSS3, SASS & jQuery I build clean functional websites that serve you and your audience.


Using latest web technologies, I create websites that work beautiful across multiple devices.


Building a website is more than just code and pictures. Understanding the user experience is crucial.

Who am I?

My Name is Richard Roberts BSc (Hons) but you can call me Richy. I am from Swansea, South Wales currently residing in Milton keynes where I have been contracting as a front-end UX/UI developer for ICAEW.

In brief I love to build and design websites that are semantically clean and are just plain awesome. In recent years I have become passionate about Responsive development, HTML5, CSS3, SASS and Grunt.

Back in 2003 while working for a small web design agency based in Newbury, England, I built my first commercial website. Those were the days well before ‘DIVS’ and ‘CSS’ were used to structure a website.

I am sure by mentioning ‘Tables’ and ‘Spacer Gifs’ in the same sentence will either bring back fond memories of yester-year or send a cold dark shiver down your spine. It was from those early days I became hooked and still develop and design today.

As well as playing on the web 24/7, I am a avid guitarist who loves to rock out to Jimi Hendrix and numerous back catalogue of Pink Floyd records. Gilmour is God.
