Self-taught web designer & developer from Philippines. I do freelance work since 2012 focusing on designing and developing websites, helping clients from around the world.
For years I've delivered solutions to small to medium-level startup clients and individuals, working remotely. I mainly design and code HTML templates and CMS/blogging platform projects. For a while, I focused on authoring premium themes and templates and selling them on Themeforest.
I genuinely love making websites. I am constantly eager to learn, adapt and evolve as a designer and I always try to keep myself aware about the latest trends and standards in design and development community.
Tools of the Trade
Experience Design (Adobe XD) & Photoshop
Coming from Photoshop background, my design tool of choice right now is Adobe XD. I almost always use XD on every project I work on since I switched.
I coded every designs I made every since. For me, knowing how to code clean and valid HTML is an essential skill as a designer.
Zurb Foundation Framework (SASS), Bootstrap & other frameworks
Almost every project I made was built with Foundation Framework although I keep updated with Bootstrap and other frameworks. It is easy to rapidly build prototypes with clean, manageable codes using Foundation.
I built projects with Wordpress, Tumblr, Ghost, Shopify and recently Webflow.
Github & Bitbucket
I manage and version-control my projects with Github and Bitbucket.
