About me

I’m Bram Smulders, a Front-end UI developer from the Netherlands. With a strong focus on accessibility & progressive enhancement I wire up HTML, CSS and JavaScript into rich online experiences.

I’ve started contributing to the web around 2007 and worked with many different companies. These include agencies like iO, E-sites, Freshheads and clients like Eneco, Government of the Netherlands, KNVB, Signify & Dunea.

I maintain some repositories on GitHub and I’ve created Supple Kit. It is a collection of tools that enable speedy, accessible, and powerful web development.

Currently, I’m working as a freelance front-end UI developer at the Government of the Netherlands.
