Portrait of Jolyon Russ

Hi I'm Jolyon

If you're wondering how to pronounce that, it rhymes with Napoleon.

As for it's origin, sadly my parent's didn't make it up, my mum was reading one of The Forsyte Saga just before I was born. Thanks to the wonders of Facebook there's even a group dedicated to people called Jolyon.

I'm a Creative Technologist

I use my design background and development skills to build great products, sometimes as rapid prototypes, other times to production.

I'm happiest pushing pixels on the front-end but don't mind diving into business logic on the back-end.

I'm always interested in hearing about exciting projects, weather you're an early stage startup, digital agency or a client-side company. Checking availability...

I like working with

The best tool for the job, over the years I've used lots of different frameworks, libraries and languages and that broad experience means I'm very adaptable.

These are a few of my favourites; Sass, Javascript, SVG, CSS3, Backbone.js, Angular.js, Express.js, jQuery, Gulp, Yeoman, Swift, Ruby, Sinatra, Git, Heroku.

I also relish the opportunity to use technologies I've never used before.


Is my most successful side project, it helps travelers tip like a local by working out where in the world they are and then showing them the percentage for that country. On it's busiest day it served 1,000,000+ pages and was featured in O The Oprah Magazine, London Shortlist and Product Hunt.
