Introduction

Frontend-HEROES is the loose collaboration between Michiel Trimpe, Maarten van Oudenniel, Gerben Hoeve and Wilfred Nas. We have been working together on several projects and occasionally combine forces to take on bigger projects by ourselves.

So if you need some front end spice, hire Wilfred, Maarten and Michiel.We are the team responsible (alone or together) for the redevelopment of anwb.nl, nos.nl and many other sites.

What we do

We build websites and have been doing that for a mighty long time. Wilfred started building those things in 1995, not long there after Maarten began, and we're sure that Michiel was thinking up new programming languages by the age of 4, which is not that long ago. Meanwhile Gerben was busying himself with cutting edge graphic design, as well as dabbling in UI design.

The projects we do are as much cutting edge as we can get away with, while at the same time thinking about what the client wants ( even if they don't know that themselves ). This means we build websites in HTML5 now, while making sure that these work in the 9 years old IE6 or on a (decent) mobile phone.

We have a keen interest in and knowledge of the dutch Webrichtlijnen and strive to build websites that conform to those. Further more we strongly believe in web standards, thus providing our customers with future proof, working on more than one browser or platform, accessible and SEO friendly websites.

We use Javascript and the latest HTML5 techniques as a way to enhance the overall experience, not to hinder it. In using these techniques unobtrusively we help those with newer, better equipped browsers and not hinder people that still use IE6.

In short, we strongly believe in the open web as an accessible and user friendly platform. And we will help our customers to get such a platform for their message.
