Nathan Fortt

Front-End Developer

About

Nathan, or ‘DJ Fortty’ as he’s known by the team, is one of our Front-End Developers at Illustrate Digital. He’s a shining example of great development and that’s not just as a result of his bald complexion. 😉

He joined the team in early 2019, bringing with him some considerable agency experience where he worked on many WordPress and non-WordPress projects alike. He’s here for a challenge and our client projects aren’t shy of making sure that’s possible, since we like to take on some tricky and forward-thinking work that breaks the mould of normal development.

His job in front-end means he’s responsible for creating amazing user experiences and websites that people can enjoy using. However he also straddles in the back-end team too, considering the wider implications of our work on content-editing experience, website management, site speed and everything that comes with owning and operating a website platform. This means he gets to focus fully on the WordPress platform and his curious nature means he’s always pushing boundaries, whilst still striving to keep excellence running throughout our agency’s work.

Outside of the 9-to-5 Nathan enjoys a chilled life on the Welsh coast where he spends time playing guitar, jamming with friends (musically, he’s not just flavouring people’s toast) and learning new code technologies for fun.
