Web developer who will make your website stand out!

About me

Ivan Kostic - Your Web Developer!My name is Ivan Kostić, a 31 years old top-rated freelance web developer and designer, coding from my home in Serbia, providing clients with cutting-edge solutions all over the world, mainly in the UK. I established my freelance career on Elance and Upwork mainly, but these are not the only sources of my work. You can check what my clients say about me at any time.

Working with front-end at most, my specialty is converting mockups and designs (PSD) to responsive HTML5 & CSS3 code, especially for WordPress custom themes. Personally, I don’t recommend just customizing free/premium bloated themes, I would rather go and code exactly the things suited for your needs and your site. So, building many websites with WordPress had a huge impact on growing my freelance web developer career further. I also created a number of WordPress widgets, including some custom PHP & MySQL projects from scratch like, for instance, a betting script. I’m producing robust, well-commented and clean coding only – no hard-coding and messy coding!

You must not mistake with your freelance web developer choice!

I have 9+ years of experience in making the web a better place, including two years of working experience in local companies. Things have changed a lot in web development in recent years, so in order to keep my freelance web developer career alive, I need to follow the latest trends and methods.

When I was starting, websites were viewed mostly on desktop devices, which isn’t the case anymore! “Responsive website era” has begun many years ago, and coding for mobile devices is a must today! Also, coding languages evolved, so I’m educated with the latest versions of HTML5, CSS3, JS (ES6). Actually, I write my CSS as modular SCSS in WebPack workflow, as I moved from Gulp recently. More about this will be written in my blog, which I would strongly advise you to follow. It’s unlikely that you can ever stop learning things as a freelance web developer. Therefore in spare time, I’m exploring one of the most popular JavaScript frameworks today – ReactJS. Coding web apps are in my long-term plans.
