Ross Interactive

Freelance Web Design & Development

If you’re looking for someone who’s keen on details, meets deadlines, stays within budget and loves creating great work you’ve found your guy.

Over the last four or five years I’ve found a nice niche in the interactive community. I often work as a designer, a front-end developer or sometimes both. I work with my own clients creating websites for small businesses or I work with startups, design agencies and companies who hire me on a per-project basis. I’m equally happy working from my own home office or working onsite with nearby clients, and always look forward to meeting new people and the creative opportunities that come with it.


I’m a designer who happens to know front-end development very well. Until recently there were not many people who could do both well. I was often mistaken for a programmer who, because I could code HTML/CSS, must know all facets of coding. There’s a big difference between web designer (knowing design, front-end, usability aspects) and programmer. I’m glad people are starting to recognize the difference. It’s extremely important for today’s web designer to know and understand front-end development so their work is user friendly, browser-compatible and just generally web-friendly.

Sometimes a company may hire me for design or UI only. They may hire me to design and do the front-end coding. They may have a talented design team and only need me for ultra-clean HTML/CSS templates. In any event, I’m always on the lookout for ways to create great design and can definitely help your company.

Front-end Development

Whatever your site needs, I invite you to take a look at the source code of any site in my portfolio: you’ll find clean, compact, organized code. I keep up with the latest techniques and strive to get leaner and meaner code so your site will always be up-to-date, top-notch and easy to manage.

Take a look at the source code and CSS for this page you're on right now if you like. It’s been built with HTML5 (in early 2009 I might add), uses cufón for text replacement in some areas and utilizes new CSS3 techniques.
