Nice things people have said about me

Lightning fast, with incredible passion and ability that I haven’t experienced with anyone else. Harry has great dialogue with design teams, is firm in his front-end beliefs, and challenges design decisions that will impact the performance of large, high traffic sites. However, and importantly, he is willing to compromise, delivering the extra bit that designers always look for and, ultimately, contributes to fantastic products.

I am going to miss him as a colleague and a friend, but more people need to benefit from what he has to offer. Rob Farnell, Lead Designer, BSkyB

You’ve shown me the ropes when working with a big company [...] it’s been great having you as a colleague. Matt Allen, Designer, BSkyB

We’re great fans of Harry at FT Labs, his work has had a lot of influence over the CSS architecture of the Financial Times web app. Andrew Betts, Director, FT Labs

I’ve got a crush on Nic Marson. Andrew Clarke
