About

I am a front-end web developer specialized in small and medium-sized websites for sole practitioners, non-profit organizations and SMEs.

As you can see in my portfolio, quality is very important to me. I like clean and readable code and check my websites through a variety of tools to ensure the highest quality. I have experience in optimizing:

  • performance: website loading time
  • accessibility: for people with visual or motor disabilities
  • security: implementation of best practices
  • search engine optimization (SEO): design tweaks to rank higher on search engines

Expertise:

  • Small to medium sized websites
  • Responsive web design: an attractive and easy-to-use layout on any device
  • WordPress CMS: offers the possibility to make small adjustments to your website yourself
  • Digital marketing: SEO, SEA and social media

CORE cvba-so

I did not develop this website as it was entirely made in PHP, without the use of a CMS. I did manage all new content and made little improvements and expansions in PHP, like a form to order products.

The website I maintained is no longer online. It was replaced by one with a CMS.

Home page "metro"

  • Pop-up with birthday calendar

  • Special focus on performance (using SVG sprites, JS compression, WebP image format, ...)

This "metro"-variant is optimized for home pages with less than 20 favorite websites and is especially useful on devices with a touch screen.

You might think the design was inspired by Microsoft's Metro design language, but that is not the case. I created this design in 2008, several years before Microsoft released Windows Phone and Windows 8.

Personal website

This is the first website I built from scratch. I built it using nothing but Notepad as I figured this was the best way to learn the basics of web design. It was mainly used to practice and try out new features. The last complete rebuilt happened at the same time HTML5 and CSS3 started to come up.

It no longer meets current standards as it is 'float'-based instead of using 'flexbox' or 'grid' and is also not responsive.
