Richard Hallows

I’m a Senior Interface Developer specialising in CSS architecture and design systems for product teams and creative agencies.

I’m passionate about design on the web — even grappling with typography 1 — and enjoy working closely with designers to make useful and beautiful things.


Barnardo’s Design System

Colour guidance

I co-created, with a UX Designer, the Barnardo’s Design System. It is a set of principles, guidance and example implementations to help other designers and developers build accessible and usable digital products for Barnardo’s.

The website is built using Gatsby, a static site generator powered by React.


The plugin documentation page

I co-created stylelint, a modern CSS linter. Built on top of PostCSS and written for Node.js. It has over 150 built-in rules for linting stylesheets. It’s used by companies worldwide, including GitHub and Facebook.

I co-built the stylelint website using Phenomic, a static site generator based on the React and Webpack.

Inside Abbey Road

Inside Abbey Road Studio One

I implemented, at Stink Digital for Google Creative Lab, the CSS architecture and build-system for the Inside Abbey Road experience using PostCSS, SUIT CSS and gulp.

I also led the HTML and CSS development for the editorial content within the experience.

Webby Award Winner & FWA Site of the Month

Digital Production Office

Marketing website for DPO

I provided consultancy to Rez Interactive for the CSS architecture of Sargent Disc’s suite of webapps.

I co-built a design system of Angular components, built using CSS Modules, PostCSS and Webpack.

Mentos Fresh Filter

Mentos Fresh Filter Home Page

I led the development of the HTML and CSS, using SMACSS and BEM notation, for Mentos’ Fresh Filter responsive website at Stink Digital for BBH London.

I used progressive enhancement techniques to ensure the site adapted well to differences in resolution, screen size, input type, network speed and device speed.

FWA Site of the Day


Geox Amphibiox

Amphibiox Home Page

I developed the responsive interface for Geox’s Amphibiox website using stylus, HTML and JavaScript, at Stink Digital for SMFB.

I unobtrusively incorporated resizeable Flash-based interactive video content so it was available on as many browsers and devices as possible.
