Freelance Drupal Developer


I'm Nathan Simmonds, a web developer and Drupal specialist based in Brighton, UK.

I worked for over seven years at Precedent, a Top 20 UK digital agency.  While there I collaborated on many interesting and varied projects, such as The Wildlife Trusts, Anthony Nolan, Parkinson's UK and Moorfields Eye Hospital.

Since then I have helped a number of clients deliver great results on their Drupal projects.  Last year I completed the rebuild of the Total War website for British video game developer Creative Assemby; and more recently I applied my expertise to optimising the editorial experience of Wallpaper* and NME for Time Inc.
