Hi, I’m Luke Harrison

I’m a web designer & front-end developer from Sheffield, UK with over 5 years of experience.

I have key skills which stretch across the project life cycle; from designing UX driven wireframes and mockups through to developing high quality code focusing on performance, responsiveness and usability.

I’ve always been interested in web design, first as a hobby and now as a career. I currently work at car finance broker Evolution Funding, where I'm driving front-end development and refining the usability of products and services.
