I’m Ben Hudson, a front end web developer living and working in Fleet, Hampshire. I’ve been in the game for about five years, working with multi-national corporations, SMEs, charities and all things in between. I specialise in building completely bespoke responsive WordPress backed websites, hand coded from the ground up. I tweet as @BennyHudson, and I take pictures of my dinner and my cat on Instagram.
So, thanks for stopping by. Make sure that you go and check out my portfolio, and if you want to work together, get in contact – it could be the start of something beautiful.
When it comes to development, I’m completely self taught. I came out of uni knowing next to nothing about coding, and managed to land a job at GAME, where my colleagues were kind enough to get me started. Having caught the coding bug, I threw myself into learning as much as I could about HTML, CSS and jQuery. I started out as an assistant online designer, and after a nice promotion, I left my position as the lead online designer to go and work for Electronic Arts in Guildford. Here, I taught myself more advanced techniques, working with more in depth jQuery and AJAX to develop completely dynamic custom landing pages on the Origin download platform.
Now a fully fledged freelancer, I work with Brandtastic, building completely bespoke WordPress backed websites, hand coded from the ground up. I also do loads of work with Argos, building their landing pages for brands like PlayStation, Hoover, Power Rangers and Xbox One. I’ve also worked with Mattel to build their Argos stores for Barbie, Hot Wheels, Monster High, WWE, Scrabble and Max Steel.
