James Bateson Personal Site: Homepage

Hello, I'm James. A Front End Designer working in Manchester at Code Computerlove.

Welcome to my digital notebook. Somewhere I can post the occasional thought or learning, and a place to practice my writing. I'm very much 'front-of-front-end' and have a passion for HTML, CSS, UX, accessibility, and performance. Outside of work I love to run, hike, and cook.
