Merlin Mason Graphic & Web Designer

About Merlin Mason

I'm a frontend developer with a background as an award winning designer.

I work closely with designers, turning ideas into interactive, responsive and immersive websites and applications.

I love web standards and open source technology, and spend most of my time working with WordPress, jQuery, Git/SVN, PHP, HTML5, CSS3 & LESS. A fan of agile methodologies and working in an object oriented manner, I create and iterate quickly.

A fan of travelling, I can be found cycling, snowboarding and egg scrambling in various cities around the world.

I've worked internationally from:
  • Norwich UK,
  • Leeds UK,
  • Melbourne VIC,
  • Melrose SA,
  • Geraldton WA,
  • Beaufort FRA.
  • Hong Kong CH.
  • London UK.
