Paul Love

Front-end technical lead and developer


I have over 15 years experience leading the successful delivery of solid front-end solutions for complex e-commerce, CMS and application builds, including Waitrose, Boots, Debenhams, The British Heart Foundation, The Home Office and Royal Shakespeare Company.

I sit very firmly on the visual and user-centric end of the front-end spectrum, rather than the JavaScript side.

I'm currently focusing on projects that involve some or all of the following: component-led CSS, living style guides, SSGs, PostCSS, SUIT CSS, Grunt, Gulp, npm scripts and web performance.
