John Visser

UI Developer. Writer. Ukulele strummer. Coffee roaster. Family man. Easily amused.

Throughout my career of over 20 years, I’ve built a reputation for being an approachable professional and a tenacious problem solver. A front-end web developer with a knack for design, I strive for simple and intuitive user interfaces, clean code, and thoroughly tested and optimized websites. I have a keen interest in how people use the web, and really love getting involved in innovative ventures that help improve people’s lives.

When I’m not working in my slippers or spending time with my family, I can be seen strumming my baritone ukulele, roasting coffee, taking pictures, and inventing new ways to include bacon in my cooking (though not all at the same time). I also have interests in forensic anthropology, music, travel, and psychology.

A Seattle native, I had the opportunity to live in Portugal for four years. I’m currently in Poulsbo, WA.

You have succeeded in translating my inchoate ideas into an attractive and robust website that I can easily update myself.
John makes my life easier. His work is excellent, he answers questions, explains options clearly, and he understands and respects deadlines.
It's such peace of mind for me to hand off a project to you and know it will be done right, within budget, and on time. Thank you!

Show and tell...

It’s not always easy showing off a developer’s work, since much of the razzle-dazzle is hidden beneath the surface. Part of being a good developer means taking the wireframes, mockups, and assets you’re given, and using them to craft a well-designed and functional website.

Here are some examples of projects I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating on.
