Hi there, I’m Harry; I am an award-winning Consultant Front-end Architect, writer, and speaker from the UK. I help companies all over the world write better quality, more manageable, more scalable user interfaces. I am available for work.
A Google Developer Expert, and named Young Developer of the Year (2014) by net magazine, I was previously a Senior Developer at BSkyB. I have consulted internationally with clients including the United Nations, the BBC, the NHS, Google, and the Financial Times. I specialise in CSS architecture and front-end performance for large and long-lived sites and applications.
I write, work, speak, and run workshops across the globe covering pragmatic, product-led approaches to building and scaling large front-ends for long-running projects and products. I specialise in CSS architecture, scalability, front-end performance, and design process and strategy.
I am a member of Smashing Magazine’s Experts Panel, co-author of a book on new approaches to web development, and lead developer of the increasingly popular, open-source, OOCSS framework inuitcss. For a more comprehensive overview, you can find me on LinkedIn.
Most importantly, I am available for hire to help people build great products. Workshops, consultancy, training, advice, development, and more are all available to clients of all shapes and sizes, all over the world.
CSS Wizardry makes use of many great tools and services; tools and services that make my life as a developer much, much simpler.
The CSS is written in Sass, and built on top of inuitcss. inuitcss is a free, open-source, Sass-based, OOCSS framework with a strong focus on performance, scalability, and a small footprint. This is then built into ITCSS, a CSS architecture of mine which is designed to aid the growth and maintainability of CSS projects.
Your system font is used wherever possible to give a familiar feel and to help improve performance. The photograph used on the homepage’s masthead is of me speaking at DotYork, and was taken by Jim Poyner.
Responsive testing was made possible by Finch, an incredible tool for exposing local dev sites to the open internet.
I chose the name CSS Wizardry when I was 17 years old. It’s a decision that I’m having to live with…
