Jonathan Brain

Hello. My name’s Jonathan Brain, and I’m a web designer & developer based in Brighton, UK.

I create great websites for businesses, and work freelance for design and marketing agencies. If this sounds of interest to you, please get in touch.

Work, in detail




I design websites to help you achieve your business objectives, whether that’s helping your customers complete an online purchase, register for your mailing list, or simply to send you an email.

Already have a designer? No worries – I can work with them (or their designs) to build your website.


I am both a skilled front-end and back-end developer, with abilities in multiple programming languages and technologies, including: HTML, CSS, JavaScript/jQuery, AJAX, PHP, ASP.NET, C#, SQL, XML, Codeigniter.

Content management

No website is complete is without a Content Management System (CMS) to allow its owner to add/edit/remove content.

I have extensive experience of building websites using popular CMSs such as Perch, WordPress and Drupal, and have also built custom CMSs to cater to specific needs.

Accessibility & responsive design

I build websites for accessibility, and – if required – sites that are designed to be responsive to different device sizes – smartphones, tablets, etc. as well as desktops.

SEO & marketing

The websites I build come complete with the technical structures in place to assist SEO (Search Engine Optimisation).

However, successful SEO is not purely a technical exercise, it requires a cohesive content (“key phrase”) strategy. I’m happy to work with your SEO strategist, or alternatively my affiliate company Bad Apple Marketing can assist you with your strategies for SEO, PPC (Pay Per Click advertising) and social media marketing.

Hosting & domains

I can assist with finding hosting for your website, purchasing/managing your domain names, and setting up email accounts.
