def greeting():
return "Hello there!"

My name is Ben Wilkes. I’m web designer and developer based in Edinburgh, Scotland.

I’m currently working full-time for Apropos (by D.J. Alexander) – a property management solution designed to exceed the expectation of both landlords and tenants.

Additionally, I have been freelancing part-time since February 2018 and have supported a variety of clients nationwide. 

About me.

I’m a web & media professional who graduated from the Edinburgh Napier University in June 2018 with a BSC in Web Design & Development (with distinction).

I have experience working (and supporting clients) in multiple industry sectors, such as Property management, Finance and Learning & Development. 

Competent with common web technologies including: HTML, CSS, Javascript, jQuery, Relational databases (SQL), BitBucket/Github and WordPress.

Also skilled with multiple design tools: Sketch, Adobe XD, InVision, Abstract and Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator + much more).

Comfortable working in Agile working environments, I have experience with Project management tools such as JIRA, ClickUp and Monday.com.

Outside of work, you can usually find me… exploring my local mountain bike trails (in the summer) or snowboarding (in the winter).

Availability.

My freelancing services will end on 1st May 2021. I will continue to support existing clients until then.

I am not taking on any new clients. 

What’s next?

I’ve already began work on my next exciting project, which you can check out here – MotorHunters.co.uk

Motor Hunters will eventually become an online motoring community with classified ad functionality. 

Stay tuned for updates. I’m kicking off the next round of development this Summer (2021).
