Case study: Ampersand Commerce

Ampersand are an e–commerce agency in Manchester, UK. I’ve been working with them since October 2017.

I initially worked on their base CSS framework and implemented a front–end style guide system that they can apply to new e–commerce website builds. This framework is installed to new Magento 2 projects to give developers a base set of styles and components that can be themed to rapidly prototype and build a website for new clients. It also brings down the initial setup time for new projects and vastly reduces the time and cost of the ongoing build.

I worked on two e–commerce projects implementing these reusable styles and components to scaffold and build branded websites for one of Ampersand’s clients. The end result was a 2 month turnaround on the first website build, and 3 week turnaround on the second!


I had autonomy to manage the workload for the 2 projects myself, and worked with an integrated in–house team of front–end and back–end developers, designers, QA testers and management.

While I was there I took part in DevX — their in-house monthly talks — presenting to the company on Progressive Web Apps and Accessibility.
