Erik Gelderblom

I’m a freelance user interface designer & front end developer from Rotterdam (The Netherlands).

I love working on interactive projects for brands and individuals. If you are looking for a freelance interactive designer or front end developer who specializes in interface design for websites and apps:

Thanks to my design and code skills, I’m able to lead teams and communicate with designers and developers. Like a translator I understand the goals of a designer and the underlying technical implications for developers.

I’m also for hire as a freelance front end developer. I’m an expert in WordPress. I wrote my own framework that combines WordPress’ ease of use with a modern git driven deployment workflow.

I use tools like Git and Textmate to write valid HTML, PHP, SASS (CSS), Coffeescript (Javascript) and HAML (Ruby). And I make sure everything performs smoothly and is mobile first and retina ready by default. I know my way around Linux servers and MySQL databases to get everything up and running.

In 2006 founded online magazine Fontanel and in 2011 I founded it’s offspring Fontanel Jobs, the job board for the Dutch creative industry together with Thomas Moes and Willem van Roosmalen.

I have worked for the following brands and companies: HBO, Vitra, Studio Dumbar, Tam Tam, Argos, Team Argos-Shimano, Het Spoorwegmuseum, De Consumentenbond, D-reizen, Heineken, The Red Cross, The Graphic Design Festival, Artsen Zonder Grenzen, Blend Magazine, Delta Lloyd Group, Hogeschool Rotterdam, Waternet and others.
