Rob's resume

After 15 years wearing the various hats of front-end developer, project manager, content strategist and UX designer, I now work independently as a freelancer with digital agencies on CMS projects that involve structured content.

I'm also passionate about brands and teach a course on brand psychology.

I work with Craft CMS and Craft Commerce because it is a perfect balance between structure and flexibility. I can help clients focus on their content strategy while building highly scalable and modular content editing experiences that delight editors.

I work remotely and can adapt to your time-zone and your team's favorite tools and methodology. If you work with Craft and need help with a project, I'd love to hear from you.

UX & Content Strategy

Designing a CMS project from wireframes without a corresponding content strategy is, at best, ineffective. CMS projects are often delayed because content is an afterthought. I help Clients plan their content architecture and work with UX designers to adapt the design to the content.

My experience of content marketing and UX best practices allows me to develop effective and scalable content models to best fit the client's marketing objectives.

Front-end Development

I develop Craft CMS projects locally on Homestead and use Git for version control and Webpack or Gulp for automation. I focus on DRY code , modularity and performance. I use CCS frameworks like Bootstrap 4, or utility-first frameworks like Tailwind CSS for Agile UI prototyping in TWIG templates.

Once a content model is defined, I develop content builders with Matrix fields to make the editing experience intuitive and effective for the client.
