Independent Front-End Developer & CSS Consultant.

I build fast, accessible, scalable websites & design systems that deliver results.

Hi! I’m Mariano Miguel. Since 2012, I've collaborated with internationally recognized brands, multi-million dollar startups and numerous web agencies. Projects I’ve worked on have been featured on HackerNews, TechCrunch, Yahoo, FastCo, Time Inc and BusinessWire, to name a few.

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and started tinkering with web design at the young age of fourteen. Ten years later, I now travel the world while working with some of the coolest & most exciting startups & product teams from all over the globe.

How I can help

I develop fast and usable responsive front-ends, using the latest techniques and technologies to increase performance and reduce loading times.

With HTML, CSS, SVG and Javascript as my tools, I am able to build websites and pattern libraries that not only look beautiful, but are powered by code that's just as beautiful as well as fast and scalable. Need a CMS? I also have experience integrating my front-end code with WordPress and WooCommerce.

If your project requires design, then I can join forces with my friend & talented designer, Michael Suen. We’ve known each other for quite a while and have successfully launched multiple projects together, helping great startups & companies build strong brands and be ready for business from day one.

"Mariano: your work has been amazing. There is not a single person who is not impressed by you. You have been instrumental in taking Vimpact to new levels"
Phillip Bak, Vimpact

Not your average, unpredictable freelancer

I’m really, really good at front-end development. But that’s not all that matters. See, freelancers have a reputation for being uncomunnicative, missing deadlines & stealing people’s money.

I work very differently.

I also happen to be really good at seamlessly integrating with my clients' teams, becoming their go-to contractor of choice. My relationship with my clients usually starts with small pilot projects like coding a landing page and 90% of the time evolve into long-term partnerships.

The secret? Quality work and great communication.

"This is great, thank you very much. We are very pleased with both the quality and communication!"
Adam & Kristina Auckland, Cornerstone Labs

How I work

Over the years I’ve developed a streamlined and highly collaborative process that combines my own experience with goal-driven design and agile development.

I don't hide my work until it's ready for a "big reveal". Instead, you'll hear for me at least twice a week and I'll set up a shared Dropbox folder or git repository so that you can watch as my work progresses. A dedicated Slack channel is always open for communication. Unless you have any other preference, I use Trello for project management.

"Mariano is talented, fast, friendly, smart and communicative. His code is clean, and he has a good eye for design. I can’t recommend him highly enough."
Michael Suen, WEIRDO
