I'm passionate about quality interfaces.

I feel that the best UI and front-end experiences are clear, concise, and easy to understand. There should be no guesswork on the user's end; a workflow should feel natural.

My talent is harnessing the power of modern web standards, along with a variety of Javascript toolkits and frameworks, to produce usable, intriguing, powerful front-ends. I have expertise in:

  • Hand-written vanilla Javascript and jQuery
  • JS frameworks, including Knockout, Backbone, and Dojo
  • From-scratch HTML(5) and CSS(3)
  • PSD/AI-to-HTML/CSS conversions

If you've got a front-end or UI task that needs tackled, chances are I can handle it. Drop me a line!

working prototypes

Sketching and prototyping are necessary steps in the process of working towards a beautiful UI.

By collaborating in order to determine the most logical, streamlined workflow for your users, we can establish a baseline from where the UI's construction can begin.

These first steps can save you time and man-hours, as well as lead you towards the creation of a fantastic front-end that users will embrace.

Let me assist you in creating a gorgeous, easy-to-use interface that will wow your users.

about me &
contact information

My name is Josh, and I'm a front-end developer/UI designer currently living in Chicago.

I'm a huge Javascript fanatic and love dreaming up ways to solve user interface problems in an elegant, well-designed and -executed manner.

I also love trying to coax Javascript into doing things it wasn't originally designed to do; desktop and mobile application development always fascinates me.

In my personal life, I love heavy music, tattoos, horror movies, and the never-ending process of learning.

At this point in time, I am available for new projects. Whether it's a contract position or freelance project, local or remote, I am available for work (and love to travel!).

Shoot me an email at jkymarsh[at]gmail.com, contact me on any of my social networks, or use the widget below to call via Google Voice.
