Hello, my name is Justin Norton; a web developer and designer based in Bristol (UK) providing freelance design and development services to start-ups, national charities, and businesses of various sizes in Bristol, Bath, London, China and North America.
I have over 10 years commercial experience gained through a variety of professional design and development roles, a Bachelors Degree (BSc) in Multimedia and a Masters Degree (MA) in Interactive Multimedia.
Visit my resume page for more information about my skills and experience.
We have employed Justin's highly accomplished web development and Drupal skills for a range of initiatives on a number of occassions. He is highly-professional at handling issues and developing sites in tandem with our in-house design and development teams. What really stood out was his conscientiousness and eye for detail, I can strongly recommend him.
There are few better web developers or IT problem solvers than Justin, he is also a skilled creative designer. He took a failing project over and turned it into a successful one within three months. The previous developers had taken six months to create a poorly developed mess. Justin had to unravel it all and find fixes for so many things. He has good knowledge of business and will provide you with a solution that fits your needs. Once he knows where you want to go and what you want to achieve he will find you the best path forward.
As a new enterprise operating in the competitive international education sector, we wanted to add specific technical direction and consultancy services from an experienced web designer / developer who had knowledge of online marketing and SEO.
Justin helped us plan and develop the portfolio of websites and associated digital products that form the core of our online service offering. He used his expert WordPress knowledge to great effect by building a range of complex/responsive search engine-optimised websites - not least our main student website - now used (and we hear appreciated!) on a daily basis by clients and customers alike.
With time in short supply and with relationships being key to supplier success, Justin wins by offering great objective advice and by being a pleasure to work with - not least because he's quick to respond to queries - not always the case with suppliers!
I'd be very happy to recommend Justin to anyone looking for a Rapid Response Team to add value to their web development resources.
Having worked with Justin on a number of projects his work has always been of the highest standard. His skills are versatile and flexible, and his consistent understanding of the details as well as the bigger picture really makes him a valuable addition to the team. From a technical and creative perspective I would gladly recommend him to anyone.
Justin worked on the development of Future Publishing's internal training site during 2011. During the process Justin was instrumental in making the site work, designing the key stages and layout, and ensuring that when delivered to me, the customer, that it functioned properly and was easy to update. Justin has been the most brilliant support to me during the time he has been working on the site and I am extremely grateful. Justin made something very complicated seem easy. He is a true asset and I have no hesitation in recommending Justin.
Justin led Fast Car Magazine's move and tricky migration from a complicated bespoke website to our current WordPress website / CMS. We found him articulate, highly-skilled and a great communicator. He delivered the project on time and fully fulfilled our expectations and more.
The quality of Justin's work has always been exceptional, exceeding every brief given to him. His knowledge of a wide variety of platforms and programming languages makes him one of the most versatile web designer/developers I know and an incredible asset to any organisation.
Justin is a diligent, creative and professional digital designer and programmer who can quickly master any technology or platform. He has particular strengths in PHP, WordPress, Drupal and complex ecommerce platforms such as Magento Commerce. In short, Justin is very good at understanding the commercial implications of design and translating that into distinctive and effective solutions.
Justin initially worked for me on a re-design of parts of our magic5 web application. I was very impressed with his work and subsequently engaged him to work on a full re-design. When it came to creating a new product web site, Justin was the obvious person to turn to. He has good technical knowledge and is particularly skilled in the business and commercial aspects of web technologies.
Justin Norton made an important contribution to Space Signpost, a science communication project I developed in collaboration with Futurelab. He created a sophisticated interface that incorporated all the learning from user research we had conducted. The project was under time pressure when Justin came onboard and Justin's role carried a lot of responsibility, but this did not prevent him approaching the job creatively. He worked well with the whole team and was an asset to the project as much for his imagination as for his technical skills.
Justin led the migration of the Startups.co.uk portfolio from a custom CMS onto a more easily scaleable Wordpress platform, ably assisting us on the strategy for doing so and providing valuable insight on how to structure the new technical set-up.
More recently, as the portfolio has scaled, Justin has been adept at turning his hand to the many and varied web development queries that have been directed at him, taking our (often very!) rough ideas, recommending approaches and converting them into a well-thought out solution. Added to that, his quick response and quick turnaround are always greatly appreciated.
