Nomensa’s development and accessibility specialist, Emily Coward, has been listed in the British Interactive Media Association (BIMA) 100 in the Devs and Makers category.

The BIMA 100 list, which was launched in 2013, aims to celebrate and recognise the best and most influential working in British digital. The 100 were chosen from nominations by a select panel of industry experts chaired by Lawrence Weber. The ceremony will take place on May 10 in central London.

Emily, who joined the strategic UX design firm in 2004 as a graduate in Interactive Multimedia has grown to become an essential member of the web development team. As a principal front-end developer, she has risen through the ranks of the business to become one of the most well respected developers and accessibility specialists within the company.
