I see myself not only as a designer and developer but also as a problem-solver, making the complicated simple. I approach all of my projects with a blend of creative, critical thinking, and technical skills to create experiences that bring your vision to life.
I offer a wide range of services, but no matter how I work with you, I will always create custom solutions that are tailored to your needs.
User experience (UX) | User interface (UI) | Responsive design | Mobile-friendly
I specialize in creating well-designed websites that are visually stunning, user-friendly, functionally efficient and optimized for all devices. With my deep understanding of UX principles and UI best practices, I create intuitive web experiences that reflect your brand and engages your audience.
Whether it's a simple landing page, a complex multilangual website or an e-commerce platform, my focus is on delivering exceptional user experiences that leave a lasting impression and help your business thrive online.
What tools do you use to design a website?
To design websites, I use a variety of professional tools such as Adobe XD for wireframes and prototyping, Adobe Illustrator for custom graphics and icons and Adobe After Effects for animations, including Lottie files.
With the use of prototypes, my clients are able to see an exact visual representation of how their website will be developed during the next phase of the project, allowing them to provide feedback and ensuring that the final website meets their individual requirements, delivering exactly what they envisioned.
What is User Experience (UX) design?
User Experience (UX) design is a critical aspect of creating a successful website. It refers to the process of crafting the overall experience that users have when interacting with your website. This includes everything from how the website looks and feels, to how it functions and how users navigate through it. UX design aims to ensure that a website is user-friendly, intuitive, and enjoyable to use. A well-designed UX can enhance user satisfaction, increase engagement, and ultimately drive conversions.
As a UX-focused web designer, I am dedicated to creating websites that deliver exceptional user experiences, keeping the needs and preferences of your target audience at the forefront of the design process.
What is User Interface (UI) design?
User Interface (UI) design is a crucial element of web design that focuses on the visual and interactive elements of a website. It involves the consistent design of buttons, menus, forms, icons as well as selecting the right color schemes, typography, and other visual elements to create a consistent and visually appealing design language that aligns with the brand identity and user preferences.
As a skilled UI designer, I strive to create intuitive and visually appealing website designs that enhance the overall usability and aesthetics of your website, making it enjoyable for users to interact with and achieve their goals.
What is Mobile Responsiveness and why does it matter for my website?
Mobile responsiveness refers to the design and development of a website to adapt and display optimally across different screen sizes, devices, and orientations, including smartphones and tablets. With the increasing use of mobile devices to access the internet, having a mobile-responsive website is crucial for delivering a seamless and user-friendly experience to visitors regardless of the device they use.
Mobile responsiveness matters for your website because it ensures that your website looks and functions well on all devices, providing an optimal browsing experience for your visitors. A mobile-responsive website adjusts its layout, fonts, images, and interactive elements to fit the smaller screens of mobile devices, allowing users to easily navigate, read, and interact with your website on-the-go. Additionally, mobile responsiveness is a key factor for search engine optimization (SEO), as search engines prioritize mobile-friendly websites in their rankings.
As a web designer with expertise in mobile responsiveness, I ensure that your website is designed and developed to be fully responsive, providing a seamless experience across all devices. This includes employing responsive design techniques, testing across different devices and screen sizes, and optimizing the performance of your website on mobile devices. With a mobile-responsive website, you can cater to the growing mobile audience, enhance user experience, and increase engagement and conversions on your website.
How long does it take to design a website?
The timeline for designing a website depends on various factors such as the complexity of the website, the number of pages, and the extent of feedback and review rounds. Typically, for the initial design phase, I require 4 - 10 days to create a design concept, keeping in mind the specific requirements and vision of the client. This timeframe may vary depending on the complexity of the website and the number of pages involved.
Once the initial design is presented to the client, additional time may be needed for feedback and review rounds. This can range from 1-3 weeks depending on the extent of feedback and revisions required.
It's important to note that this timeline pertains to the design phase only and does not include time for development or coding.
Can I book your services only for the design phase without the development?
Absolutely! I understand that different clients may have different requirements and preferences. If you only need assistance with the design phase of your website and not the development, I can certainly accommodate that. This would typically involve creating wireframes, mockups, user interface (UI) design, user experience (UX) design, and prototyping in Adobe XD for desktop as well as mobile devices.
What information do you need from me to start the web design process?
To start the web design process, I typically require some key information to ensure that I create a website that aligns with your business objectives and target audience. Ideally, I will need the following:
○ Logo: Your logo is a crucial component of your brand identity, and having it available will help me create a website design that complements your branding.
○ Business information: Understanding your business, its values, and its goals is essential to creating a website that resonates with your target audience.
○ Audience and objectives: Information about your target audience and the objectives you want to achieve with your website will help me tailor the design to meet their needs and accomplish your business goals.
○ Brief for website pages: A brief or outline that describes the pages you need for your website, including their purpose, content, and any specific functionality requirements, will provide a clear roadmap for the design process.
○ Content (if available): Typically, my clients provide me with the content for their website since they are the experts in their field. However, I can help optimize the content for search engine optimization (SEO) and tone to ensure it aligns with the overall website design and messaging. If you prefer, you can also hire me to provide copywriting services.
○ Images: Professional images of yourself, your team, your work, or your products can greatly enhance the visual appeal and authenticity of your website. If you have high-quality images available, I can incorporate them into the design. Additionally, I can source fitting stock images that align with your brand and messaging to ensure your website looks visually appealing and engaging.
If you don't have a clear idea of what you need, don't worry! I also offer a discovery phase where we can work together in workshops to define the necessary information, objectives, and requirements for your website. My goal is to ensure that I have a comprehensive understanding of your business and website goals to create a website design that meets your unique needs and delivers optimal results.
Can you create custom graphics or visual elements for my website?
Yes, I can create custom graphics and visual elements for your website. I use Adobe Illustrator to design illustrations, icons, and other graphical elements that align with your brand identity and messaging. Additionally, I can use Adobe After Effects to create animations, such as Lottie files, to add dynamic and interactive elements to your website. These custom graphics and visual elements can help make your website unique and visually appealing, enhancing the overall user experience and making your website stand out from the competition.
Can you design websites for different industries or niches?
Yes, I have experience designing websites for a variety of industries and niches. I have worked with clients from diverse sectors, including real estate, beauty and cosmetics, health care, doctors, catering, non-profits, coaching, and many more. I understand that each industry has its unique requirements and target audience, and I tailor my web design services to meet the specific needs of your industry or niche. As part of my process, I usually conduct an extensive discovery workshop with new clients to fully understand their industry, business, audience, and objectives. This helps me create a website that not only looks visually appealing but also effectively communicates your brand message and engages your target audience, regardless of the industry or niche you operate in.
Can you help with website redesign or revamping an existing website?
Yes, I do redesign websites to give them a fresh and modern look, improve their user experience (UX), and enhance their performance.
However, please note that I do not continue the work of another developer as there are many ways of developing a website, and it usually takes longer to understand someone else's code than coding it from scratch. Additionally, I cannot guarantee the safety of a website if it has been previously worked on by another developer.
Alternatively, I can assist with the design aspects and collaborate with the existing developer for the development phase. This ensures a seamless and cohesive web design experience while maintaining the integrity and security of your website.
WordPress Development | WooCommerce | Online Shop | Webflow
I offer comprehensive web development solutions using the latest web technologies. From front-end to back-end development, e-commerce functionality to content management systems (CMS), I create visually appealing and user-friendly websites optimized for performance across devices and browsers. With my attention to detail and commitment to quality, I strive to exceed your expectations and create websites that provide a seamless online experience for your visitors.
What platforms or CMS (Content Management System) do you use to develop a website?
I use a variety of platforms and CMS (Content Management System) options, including Webflow and WordPress, to develop websites. My preferred approach is to start with front-end development in Webflow, which allows me to provide clients with a live preview link to see the final result. Depending on the functionality I also write and add custom code scripts.
For the back-end development, I will develop a custom WordPress themes using ACF Pro, giving my clients the maximum flexibility in managing their own hosting and CMS functionality.

Yes, you will have the ability to edit the content of your website after it is developed. At a minimum level, you will be able to edit text and images easily. Depending on your needs, I can also develop a "mini page builder" where we predefine sections that you can use to create new pages and add new sections using a drag-and-drop interface. This will give you more flexibility in customizing your website without needing technical expertise.
The content management system (CMS) I typically use for this functionality is WordPress in combination with ACF, which provides a user-friendly interface for making edits and updates to your website easily and efficiently.
How long does it take to develop a website?
The timeline for developing a website depends on the size and complexity of the project. Once the web design is approved, as a general estimate, a standard 5-page website typically takes around 3-4 weeks of development time.
However, larger and more complex websites will need require additional time. I always strive to deliver high-quality websites within the agreed-upon timeline, and I will work closely with you to ensure that your website is developed efficiently and effectively to meet your specific requirements.
Do you provide website maintenance services after the initial development?
Yes, I do provide website maintenance and support services after the initial development. Typically, website maintenance is managed separately from the initial design and development contract. It is recommended to update a WordPress website on a quarterly basis to ensure it remains secure and up-to-date.
The cost of website maintenance will depend on the complexity of the website and the specific maintenance tasks required. I offer flexible maintenance plans tailored to the needs of each client, ensuring that their website continues to function optimally and securely long after the initial development phase.
Do you offer e-commerce website development?
Yes, I do offer e-commerce website development services. Using WordPress and the WooCommerce plugin, I can create a robust and feature-rich online store that meets your unique requirements - which is a popular and robust e-commerce solution. From setting up product catalogs, shopping carts, and payment gateways to integrating inventory management and order tracking systems, I can create a seamless and secure online shopping experience for your customers.

I can recommend reputable hosting providers based on your specific needs and guide you through the steps to register a domain. Additionally, I can take care of the technical aspects, such as launching the website and connecting the hosting and domain, to ensure a smooth and seamless website launch. If you need assistance with domain transfers, I can also help with that process. My goal is to provide comprehensive web development services, including hosting and domain support, to make the website development process as hassle-free as possible for my clients.
Can you optimize my website for search engines (SEO)?
As part of my web development process, I prioritize clean and secure coding practices to ensure your website is optimized for performance. I also offer content optimization services, including SEO keyword research and implementation. However, it's important to note that achieving high rankings on search engines like Google requires a long-term SEO strategy that involves regular content updates and building a backlink strategy. While I can assist with the initial website optimization, ongoing SEO efforts such as content creation and backlink building are specialized services that I do not offer.

Brand identity | Brand strategy | Logo design | Corporate Identity
With a deep understanding of brand principles and a keen eye for aesthetics, I will work collaboratively with you to develop a brand strategy as well as brand identity that conveys your unique story and resonates with your target audience to create a compelling and cohesive brand experiences, leaving a lasting impression.
From crafting visually stunning logos to designing comprehensive brand guidelines, I will help you establish a strong brand presence that sets you apart from the competition.
Brand strategy involves the comprehensive plan that outlines the long-term goals, values, messaging, and positioning of a brand. It encompasses the overall approach and direction for a brand, including its target audience, competitive analysis, messaging, and communication strategies. Brand strategy guides how a brand will position itself in the market, differentiate from competitors, and establish emotional connections with its audience.
Brand identity refers to the visual elements that represent a brand, including the logo, color palette, typography, imagery, and other visual assets.

Corporate identity refers to the consistent use of visual elements, tone of voice, and messaging across all communication channels of a company. It encompasses the overall image and perception that a company portrays to its stakeholders, including customers, partners, and employees. Corporate identity includes not only the brand identity but also the overall brand strategy, values, and culture of the company. It reflects the company's personality, values, and brand positioning in the market.
What is your process for creating a branding?
I follow a thorough process to ensure that the branding aligns with your vision and objectives. During the initial phase, I conduct an in-depth workshop with you, during which I will ask a wide range of questions about your business, including its history, development, target audience, competitors, color preferences, and more. Additionally, I show you examples of different brandings from your industry to gain a better understanding of your overall aesthetic preferences.
Based on the insights gathered from the workshop, I create one brand strategy and two different brand identities. The latter includes logo design, typography, imagery, and a color palette. You can then provide feedback on both and select one brand identity to proceed with. Two further feedback rounds are included in the process to refine and perfect the branding according to your preferences, until it reaches 100% satisfaction.
Once the final branding is approved, I will create a branding guideline booklet that brings everything together, including the brand strategy with value proposition, target audience, and further explanations on how to use the branding consistently across different marketing channels.
What is included when I book a branding service with you?
I don't offer predefined packages, as I believe that every client is unique and requires a customized approach.
Typically, my branding process begins with an in-depth workshop to define a comprehensive brand strategy and gain insights into the client's aesthetic preferences. Based on the workshop, I will create a detailed proposal for the Brand Strategy, encompassing the client's purpose, brand values, value proposition, target group analysis, competitor analysis, brand personality, and brand messaging, including voice and tone.
Additionally, I provide two proposals for the brand identity, which include logo concepts for multiple usage (round, horizontal, vertical), typography, imagery, and color palette. The client can provide feedback on both proposals and choose one to proceed with. We can then go through two feedback rounds to fine-tune the chosen brand identity and brand strategy to perfection.
Once everything is approved, I will create branding guidelines, and if needed, business card and letter template designs.
How long does the branding process take?
Typically, the branding process takes around 6-8 weeks to complete. However, please note that the timeline may vary depending on the complexity of the project, client feedback and revisions, and other factors. A timeline will be discussed and agreed upon during the initial consultation to ensure that expectations are met and the project is completed within a reasonable timeframe.
Can I book only a logo design without the full branding process?
Yes, absolutely! I offer a simplified approach where we can focus solely on the logo design and color palette, without the comprehensive brand strategy. This process typically involves a less intensive workshop to gather insights into your vision and preferences. Based on the workshop, I will create logo concepts and a color palette for your review and feedback.
The timeline for this simplified approach is usually around 3-4 weeks, depending on the feedback and revisions needed.
What tools and software do you use for branding?
For logo design and other graphical elements, I rely on Adobe Illustrator, a powerful vector graphics editor that enables me to create scalable and high-quality visuals. Additionally, for creating comprehensive brand guidelines, I use Adobe InDesign, a leading desktop publishing software, to create brand guidelines booklets that provide clear and consistent instructions on how to use the brand elements.
