Code Should be Beautiful

Ian Svoboda

Hi, my name is Ian. I'm a frontend developer. I love making websites that load fast and work well on any device.




I’m a frontend developer from Chicago, IL and based in Jacksonville, FL. While I primarily create WordPress sites, I can also create static prototypes, user interfaces, or provide help on frontend tasks for your project. I have an extensive background in customer support and pride myself in being a responsive and effective communicator. I really enjoy my work and I love channeling that passion into making a great result for my clients.


I'm comfortable working with frontend frameworks as well as writing completely bespoke code. I write high quality HTML, CSS/SCSS, JavaScript, and PHP that is clean, organized, and easily maintained. This allows the code I write to be easily read and understood by the next person who works with it.

I write well organized CSS/Sass in an object-oriented structure, which allows components to be very easily reused. I’m familiar with task runners such as Gulp and Grunt, but generally prefer to use CodeKit. Don't use pre-processors, task-runners, or other fancy stuff? I can work with vanilla HTML/CSS/JS just fine.

The websites I create are responsive, so you don’t have to worry about how your site will work on a phone or tablet. Even if your design doesn’t include a separate mockup for different screen sizes, I can help translate your beautiful design to work on any mobile device.

When I code WordPress themes, I write them in a way that is clean, easy to understand, and maintainable. I use the right plugins for the job when they are necessary, not just install the first thing I find in the plugin repository. If you or your organization have a specific way you like sites coded, just let me know and we can discuss your needs.
