James Shakespeare builds websites, like this one. He is from London and works at Quartz in New York.


I have over ten years of experience building websites at in-house, agency and freelance roles. I spend most of my time writing code using languages like JavaScript, but I'm often involved in shaping the design and user experience of the things I build too. I currently work on the product engineering team at Quartz, where I write code and manage other developers.

More about me


I do my best to keep this site updated with a list of things I’ve made, both for other people and for myself. Recent work that I’m proud of includes the 2018 rebuild of qz.com in React, a one-off editorial feature for Quartz called The World in 50 Years and a site that renders a pictogram of tonight’s moon phase using CSS.
