Meet the Team behind Peter-French.com
Designer

UX Designer

Comic Sans is not in my font family.

He strives for perfection. A good user interface can make or break an app. He knows this and he likes to talk about it all the time. Believe me.

Whether you are on a Mobile, Tablet, or Desktop device, he has you covered. (Oh yes, even phablets.)

That's, like, 2 pixels off.

Developer

...

No, he may not talk much but he expresses himself through action. He's the reason stuff gets done. He takes the wild ramblings of "visionaries" and makes them a reality.

When everyone else is outside on a summer day, he's spending his weekend building his resume site. You think he's taking buzzfeed quizzes when he's browsing the internet? No, he's reading up on how to best implement MVVM.

Marketer

Can you make it 20% edgier?

He makes everyone look good. Why should people get pumped up about your app or website? He can tell you why. Even spread sheets sound amazing when he talks about them.

Fueled with caffeine and inner flame, he's an unstoppable force.

Did we A/B test this?

Strategist

Yes, our app can do ALL of those things. No, I don't need to check with development first!

The Yes Man. There are problems that need good solutions. This guy has those solutions. He sees the big picture and gets excited about what the future holds.

He works hard expressing customer concerns to the team. His heaven consists of a never ending brainstorming session.

Strategist

Wait, those are all the same person...

Yes, yes they are. How can Peter do all those roles? Is he crazy? Maybe. But mostly it's because he just loves to build sweet software.

It's taken a great amount of time and effort to get where I am now. I have had the pleasure of working with some of the most knowledgable professionals in the industry. They have all taught me so much and I am very grateful for them. As I continue my career, I look forward to learning even more.

Peter French

He's also known to consume large amounts of pizza and take long walks on the beach.
