Hello, welcome to my site! My name is Brian Hankerson and as you've probably guessed by now, I'm a Web and Email Developer. I have over 10 years experience working in Front-end development in some capacity. I truly enjoy having the ability to create something from scratch, and I take great pride in everything that I develop. I truly believe there's an art to problem-solving and there is a great sense of fulfillment when you construct something that you've never done before!

{  WHAT I DO  }

As a Front-end Developer, I build websites and emails exactly as the design intends. There are some instances when this is not possible (due to device, browser, or ESP restrictions) and when those times arise, it's my "hankering" to find an efficient solution. Below are a few details and skills I utilize when approaching a new project.

Pixel Perfect


All designs that I engineer are studied and dissected before actual slicing & coding begins. I always match the design in terms of spacing, color, size, texture, etc.



Whether it's a client's email or a personal website, my code is always Mobile-friendly. After development, all items are personally tested & QA'd.

Clean Code


Code needs to be clean for easy maintenance, quicker updates, and overall sanity. My code includes comments, clear indentation, and proper naming conventions.

As a member of a team, I like to have fun while I work. The fun part includes being able to learn from like-minded, passionate team members that are all focusing on one common goal - success. One person cannot do it alone. I have huge respect for professionals that spend each day learning (and sharing) something new! I try to do the same.

Role: Developer

Skills & Services: HTML, CSS, Responsys Personalization Language (RPL), QA using Litmus

Project Details: Static Email (Responsive)

Role: Developer

Skills and Services: HTML, CSS, QA using Litmus

Notes: This is a live text email that has image swaps between desktop and mobile. The design extends 100% of the width of the screen for the hero. Due to the thought process and trickiness of the layout, it was a playful development process for this 'game-focused' marketing strategy.

Role: Developer

Skills & Services: HTML, CSS, QA using Litmus

Notes: Developing this made me proud to be an ATLien. Not only was the content & design engaging, but development had a few challenges. Everything from hiding images, repositioning, and text enhancements between the mobile and desktop versions made this a nice build.


Project Type: Static Email (Responsive)

Role: Developer

Skills & Services: HTML, CSS, QA using Litmus

Notes: The simplicity of this email definitely makes an impact. In terms of development, I decided to go with both live text and images on a large background image. As you may know, background images are always a slight challenge with email, but this was a success!
