Samm Lavelle

Hi, my name's Samm and I'm a Frontend Web Developer who's always looking for a challenge.

I love taking a design and bringing it to life and creating engaging UX.

Here's a selection of my most recent websites and experiments, some of which are personal projects, and some of which have been built for clients.


I'm really impressed by how quickly you brought my design to life. I love how it even fits nicely on my mobile!

Brighton 'Logo' - CSS Animation Experiment

This logo was my first experiment in using keyframes to create complex animations in CSS. I attended a workshop, hosted by Codebar, and worked through a tutorial on the topic (adding in some personal touches) to create the scene you can see here...

Will Newmarch - Portfolio Site

Will came to me with a design that his friend had created for him. He was looking for a polished and subtly dynamic build which was fully mobile compatible to showcase his personal projects. I particularly enjoyed the challenge of modulising my code to be easily installed in his chosen CMS: Perch.

Samm Lavelle - Maths Tuition

I built this website to advertise my private tuition business. I wanted a simple, stripped back one-page site which communicated who I am and how to get in touch with me. I started with a mobile-first design, and focused on keeping the code nice and simple, and especially liked how naturally the scaling from desktop to mobile occured.

WordPress Based Food Blog

My cat has a passion in the kitchen. This is somewhat remarkable and needed to be documented. I took this oppotunity to explore the benefits and pitfalls of using WordPress. Pancake enjoys the ease with which she can upload new content using this CMS.

Pancake's Pedicures

This cat grooming website was a mockup to develop my skills. I took a wireframe from a friend and filled it with cats. While this site is filled mostly with 'cat ipsum', I focused my final efforts on developing the site's SEO to gain knowledge in this area. I haven't had any enquiries yet, though I'm still hopeful.

Samm Lavelle - Portfolio Site

I needed a place to present my web/cat based work. This seemed like an appropriate option. It is static though I've experimented with minor JavaScript implementations such as HeadroomJS. It's also fully mobile compatible and provides me with a simple but easy to maintain web presence. Go ahead, look around!
