Hi, I'm Luke Harrison

I'm a UX / Front-End Developer & Article Writer from Sheffield UK, working full time by day & freelance by night.

With over 9 years of experience, I currently work at the UK's leading car finance broker Evolution Funding, where I'm driving (🥁) front-end development and refining the UX of products and services.

I'm also available on a freelance basis. Do you need a top notch website building, or maybe an article for your SEO content strategy? I'm available for hire.

Recent highlights include writing for Web Designer Magazine, contributing to CSS Tricks, and celebrating when a project - Mike Brewer Motors - won 'Best Online Experience' at Autotrader's 2018 Retailer Awards.
