Hi, I’m Michelle

My name is Michelle Barker. I’m a Lead Front End Developer at Atomic Smash, author of front end blog CSS {In Real Life}, and a Mozilla Tech Speaker.

Some sites I’ve worked on

A small selection of the sites I helped build while working at Mud.


I write regularly on CSS topics for my own blog and occasionally other online publications, including CSS Tricks, Smashing Magazine and Web Designer magazine.

About this site

This site was made with HTML, CSS, and nothing else. No frameworks, bundlers, preprocessors or compilers. Not even any Javascript. It’s still a work-in-progress.
