I don't typically post personal schtuff, but I'm hoping I could be of service to some of you or people you know!
First of all, I want to say that I'm sorry to have been M.I.A. during the last month or so; now that I'm over certain hurdles I will be catching up on the thousands of glorious images waiting in my notifications folder.
I've missed dA and everyone here!
In the last few months I've learned how to become a web designer and developer. I've taught myself nine different programming languages, as well as front-end frameworks like Bootstrap and Foundation and back-end frameworks like Django and Rails. It's been a lot of work, but I am finally at a hire-worthy point where I am working locally and remotely.
This started because my boyfriend and I would come up with ideas for pro-social apps that could address or raise awareness about environmental, socio-economic and/or humanitarian problems. But ... neither of us knew how to build apps! :b
Along the way, I realized that I could build websites and apps for a living, and that web design and development would combine my interests in branding, elegant design and information management. My main prerogative is supporting non-profits, small businesses and content-creators in getting their causes and products "out there" in a digital age.
If any of you (or anyone you know) needs a website or app, please consider me before contacting a design agency and shelling out thousands of dollars! I'm easy to work with and I will do it "for cheap," as they say!
If any projects come to mind, please drop me a note through dA, via this form
or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your time! I'm excited to catch up with what everyone has been posting, I will be around a lot more in the future!
