About me

I’m Bram Smulders, a Front-end UI developer from Tilburg, 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 12 years ago and worked with many different companies. These include agencies like We are you, E-sites, Freshheads and clients like Eneco, KNVB, Quinny, Dunea & Emerce.

I maintain some repositories on GitHub and I’ve created Supple. It is a small but powerfull CSS framework designed specially with the latest browsers in mind.

Currently I’m employed as Senior UI developer at We are you ’s-Hertogenbosch. We have expertise in strategy, online marketing, customer journeys, design, development and managed hosting.

Since the beginning of this year I have also started producing hardstyle music. You can check out my website and stream my music on spotify or on all other major platforms.
