It’s not very often that you find a front-end developer that is truly a full-featured developer. Per our Technical Expert, "Jonah is very good. Not only is responsive design a breeze for him, but he also takes pixel perfect to a whole new level. For example, each break point within a responsive design site is also pixel perfect for that particular viewport." Jonah possesses a good understanding of the various differences between browsers – older and newer ones. Most recently he's been working on a project for Microsoft doing an entire rebrand/redesign for one of Microsoft's highest trafficking pages. Despite being highly adept in some of the most in demand skill sets such as HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, and Angular he remains egoless and wonderfully professional.


If you're looking for a smart, strong communicator who not only knows design but has a strong UX process, then Teague is an excellent UX Designer to take a look at!

He is passionate about keeping the user as top priority and helping his clients reach their goals. If you want to talk to Teague, don't delay! He really won't be on the market for long!
