About this capture
Ben Grout
Grout the Younger – brother of Simon, Ben is our front-end developer whizz. Ben is the one who knows the Javascript libraries.
Like all great front-end developers, Ben understands how an interface works and can spot this at a code level. Whereas some developers can see beauty in the code, Ben is more interested in the end result; how it works. This is what makes him essential to any project that we take on. Ben’s finest moment can be seen in the crazy development he has recently completed on the new Chemical Brothers site. Ben has a love of music including Opera, and enjoys summer trips to Glyndebourne.
