Interactive Director
& Front End Developer

Erik Gelderblom

I’m an interactive director & 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, get in touch.

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, 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.
