More about me.

David Brookes

I'm a British freelance web developer based in the heart of London's tech hub, Shoreditch.

Over the last 10 years I've developed websites and web applications for a range of clients from startups to multi-national corporations all over the world.

Prior to freelancing, I worked at Blue State Digital in London & New York building web projects for governments, political campaigns, and corporations.

This website is built with React, GraphQL and AWS Serverless, it's open source and available on GitHub.

I'm available for either freelance or contract roles on-site in central London or I'm experienced with working as part of a remote distributed team.

Have a client who needs a complex project built on time? Looking for a technical co founder? Contact me and let me know what you're up to and I'll see how I can help.

If you’re starting a new web venture or have an existing project then get in touch to discuss your requirements and timelines.


What clients say.

David is a very talented and knowledgeable individual, I would hire him without a second thought and he will be a hugely effective addition to any team/business.

Chris Hutchings - Head of SEO, Compare the Market

David is a first class developer. I've worked with him on a number of high profile projects with quick turnarounds and he gets it right first time, every time.

Gregor Poynton - Partner, Portland Communications

David did a great job for us when I was at the RCN - he built us a couple of micro sites very quickly in ExpressionEngine. Would definitely use him again.

Michael Ingram - Digital Manager, The Royal College of Nursing

I would recommend David for anyone who is looking for a smart and creative developer who can quickly deconstruct complex problems and develop tangible solutions for delivery.

Safa Boga - Snr Product Manager, eFinancial Careers

I have yet to see a UI / development issue that David has not been able to solve. David is super creative, up to date with the current trends, and he enjoys a challenge - a real pleasure to work with.

Silke Stienen-Durand - Senior UX Architect, DHI Group

David is a great example of what I'd call a 'creative technologist'. He would be a very worthy addition to any team, full time or freelance. I'd hire him back in a second.
