My name is Anton Muraviev

I am an Web developer & Interaction designer from Bristol, United Kingdom

I am a web developer with 12+ years of experience and a huge passion for my craft: I have designed, built, and maintained a variety of apps and websites, and released a few open-source libraries.

I have been programming since a very young age – making basic text adventures in Pascal, modifying Quake’s game logic in QuakeC, creating neat visual effects in MASM, cobbling together an odd utility application in C++ – and have intuitive understanding of many software development paradigms and principles.

I find great pleasure in the process of identifying a problem, taking into consideration a wide range of technical and business constraints, and implementing a solution that is both efficient and humane in its execution. Especially when it helps my client reach their audience, serve their customers, or improve their internal processes.

Employment history

Web development consultant, Self-employed, 2016—Present

Becoming a consultant let me better focus on needs of my current client, as well as have more time to develop my own product ideas. I have helped a leading site monitoring and time lapse photography specialist (Lobster Pictures) redesign and redevelop their client-facing application, and assisted several small startups with the design and development of their products and services.

Lead web developer, Colour & Thing, 2013—2016

Working at Colour & Thing enabled me to reach a great variety of clients (Arts University Bournemouth, Martin Boroson, Box Steam Brewery) with simpler, yet more varied array of problems. While there I improved my leadership skills as a developer, understood marketing and branding aspects of design, and further expanded my expertise as an interaction designer.

Web developer, Hex Collective, 2010—2013

Having had worked with Hex Collective on several projects before, I was offered a permanent position as a full stack developer there to build (and occasionally design) websites and apps for established companies (BSM, TrakCel, Linux IT) and startups (GroupOut, a party sharing website; Comono, an event management app).

Web development consultant, Self-employed, 2005—2010

Having had built a few websites as part of various hobbies, I began my career as a remote contractor: I was a front-end developer on projects for forward-looking design brands such as YouHeShe and Normann Copenhagen; I cut my teeth at back-end development while working with several startups, the most successful being VoucherCloud, where I was partially responsible for API design, and implementation of backend data management and analytics tools.

Open-source libraries

æ

Simple PHP framework and perfect embodiment of most important lessons I learned as a PHP developer.

æ is my magnum opus – 8 years in the making – which I am not likely to ever truly finish, and yet I am still proud of getting it this far: working on it not only made me a better developer, but a better designer as well.

order.less

Easy to use collection of LESS mixins and best practices for maintaining pixel perfect grid-based layouts.

As any practitioner of design-in-the-browser methodology would tell you, making minor adjustments to layout and typography may result in huge ramifications. Order.less keeps me sane, and lets me focus on actual design.
