Patrick LockWeb designer and developer


I am a freelance web developer based in Forest Row, East Sussex, with over sixteen years commercial experience. I build quality, fast, robust, secure web sites, using responsive designs for desktop, mobile and tablet devices. I offer a bespoke web site design and build service, to fit any budget or business need. If you need a professional looking web site please take a look at my previous projects for features you might like. If you would like a no obligation consultation to clarify the right web solution for you, please get in touch.

  • Patrick is a great person to have on your team and he really knows his stuff when it comes to PHP, HTML,CSS and Jquery. I very quickly found that I could trust him to run with a project and solve problems as they arose. He’s good solid developer and very nice chap to boot.

  • We hired patrick to help me kickstart our Symfony2 (PHP) project and even though he was new to the framework, he learned quickly and got up to speed within a week or two. I am happy with his work. He is also a very friendly person, making him a joy to work with and I would of course happily hire him again.

  • Patrick worked for a month on a new CMS website platform written in Symfony 2. Patrick is diligent and self sufficient, and we are grateful to him for helping us take the plunge into Symfony 2.

  • Patrick is a great Symfony2/PHP developer. We hired Patrick to help with rebuilding our website from scratch, his expertise in Doctrine and ORM enabled us to quickly build our data access layer. He's mindful to capture requirements accurately and works well within a team, he's a good fit for a startup company.

  • I have to say that it's quite hard to find a good and reliable PHP developer in this industry who can work with a loose specification and remotely. Patrick is not just good but he is excellent at what he does. When given a task, he is both efficient and open minded about what the best solution is. Having hired him twice, we can trust that he will deliver wherever he works, be it at home, on the train or in the office. His knowledge of Symfony is second to none, and we were extremely impressed with his knowledge and willingness to write along side TDD, BDD and Agile principles. If he ever wanted to settle down and go permanent, we would always accept him here as one of our own.

  • Patrick recently developed a bespoke website for our new business Premier Health Checks. Not only was the site delivered on time and to budget but his level of execution was second to none. He takes great pride in his work. Looking forward to continuing working with him as the business develops.
