👋Hello, I’m nana, a visual designer with coding skills. I specialize in interactive & responsive design with accessibility in mind.
👀I'm actively looking for a new gig.
I have taken various paths on my journey.
I started in communication design. Through that experience, I handled both physical and digital design including branding, printing, websites, social media and so forth over 5 years. These experiences made me a qualified visual designer who specialise in brand express, design systems, typography, colour and inforgraphic.
2 years ago, I wanted to pivot into digital-driven product design. So I went to school again to learn web technologies. During this time, I learnt front-end development skills, HTML, CSS, JavaScrip as well as implementation such as PHP. So because of this, I can now call myself a codesigner (code + design).
Also, I participated in a graduate program as an implementer intern at Squiz. It was a great experience to work with talented people, UX designers, product designers, product managers as well as very dedicated engineers. I love working with talented people who have different perspective.
Nowadays, I am working as a freelance full-stack designer. My latest commercial work was designing a website for the artist Kwak's portfolio. It was highly personalised project for a single client which was a greatly challenging project. I focused on making interactive & responsive design with accessibility. I’ve done everything from remapping IA, information architecture, wireframing, prototyping and discussion with the developer, to delivering a quality product. You can find a case study about this project in my blog. I’ve written this workflow down very specifically.
I'm actively looking for a new gig. Please leave me a message.
I always learn somthing new.
