About Me

Career History

Hello, my name is Stephen Sargent. I am a highly accomplished creative developer with over 17 years experience. I started my career in digital back in the late '90s building Enhanced CDs the music industry. I quickly progressed to creating games and microsites for the film industry using Shockwave and the Lingo programing language. Over time I moved to Flash/ActionScript development but since the demise of browser plugins I now work mainly in HTML5 & JavaScript.

Skills

I specialise in standard and rich HTML5 ad production, microsites, games, Adobe AIR, DOOH, touchscreen apps and web animation. From one-off bespoke rich media asset creation to large scale, high volume banner production, I offer a wealth of experience from the initial concept, the pitch to final delivery. I relish new challenges and my key skills and objectives include:

  • A highly professional, technical specialist in creative, clean-coded development using IAB industry standard methodologies and frameworks
  • Attention to detail whilst working quickly under pressure to tight deadlines
  • Extremely skilled at hand-coded or timeline based animations and interactive effects
  • An enthusiastic and flexible team player able to realise and enhance creative concepts or workflows
  • An innovative 'can-do' attitude towards technical and creative challenges
  • Experienced at SVN/GIT versioning and Agile/Scrum development with collaboration tools such as Atlassian Jira and Trello
  • A keen eye for design and a commitment to 'pixel perfect' adaptations from the final PSD design to web or screen
