UX Engineer Chris Gibbons

Hello hello.

I’m Chris Gibbons, an experienced frontend developer based in Lancashire, UK. I help build fast, user friendly and accessible websites for the automotive industry, with a particular passion/mild obsession for well written & clean code.

I’ve got over a decades experience as a front end developer and have recently found a passion for UX and accessibility. My career has been spent working for some of the top businesses—both agency and in-house—in Manchester. During this time I have been fortunate to have the chance to work on large scale, content-managed platforms for some of the largest companies in the UK.

I also like to write and take pictures amongst other things.
