Alfonso Gómez-Arzola

Alfonso started designing professionally in the early 2000s and has bridged the gap between design and development since 2010. He’s a strong believer that good design begins with compelling content, and that user experience and accessibility are paramount to a successful web project. When he’s not designing or writing front-end code, Alfonso likes to climb rocks, hike with his wife and two pups near their home in Chattanooga, TN, and tinker with ham radio.

Alfonso’s experience with front-end technologies ranges from building simple static websites by hand to composing elaborate automation workflows for large applications with complex templating and asset processing needs. With a deep understanding of accessibility and performance, Alfonso’s interests go beyond lighting up pixels on a screen, instead championing best practices as a means to ensure the long-term maintainability and strategic success of his projects.

In addition to his front-end experience, Alfonso has crafted a number of Node.js solutions. These range from robust applications that consume a variety of APIs and serve an administrative UI, to building the APIs that other applications can consume. He has also crafted and published several open-source JavaScript modules for use by the larger JavaScript community.

Alfonso’s passion for accessible and high-performing front-end solutions brought him to Chromatic in 2017, and he has been helping fellow developers improve their skills as a lead developer since 2019.
