Daniel Munoz Rey

Bit of History

I have a degree in Information Technology (IT) by the University of Malaga (Spain). My first job was working as an industrial designer creating 3D cordless phones and payphones in Alcatel (Malaga) for Telefonica Spain for 8 years. After that I became a graphic designer, creating magazines, corporate identities, logos, banners, cards, etc, mainly for Skål International which headquarters is in Torremolinos (Malaga) for 10 years. In 2004 I moved to London, where, first I became a front-end web designer and later a back-end web developer, creating full websites from scratch including the graphics, front-end and back-end, working for companies like IT Soho, Vonsung Visual, Incisive Media, Mercer Design and Crystal Interactive. Currently I am freelancing.

In a Nutshell

I am a full stack web developer, that is, I can create complete websites from scratch including the graphics, the front end and the back end. My main expertise is front end development with a strong graphic design background and medium exposure to back end, specialising in creating responsive websites for different devices.

I love programming but also anything related with design so I consider myself a web designer and developer with a strong graphic design background. I am very good with graphics (images and vectors), creating responsive Front-end web interfaces from scratch, can also create the Back-end and I am good at programming, learning and researching solutions. I use hand coding and my code is clean and well structured. My last role involved creating Web Apps for the event industry whereby I have specialised in creating responsive code for different devices. I am passionate about my work and thrive when working on challenging projects. I am an eager self-taught at heart.

I Love

Apart for programming, another of my passions is anything related to Science, mainly Astronomy (not astrology), Physics and Mathematics. I love numbers, equations and calculations... And I love Art, so I love Fractals and Tessellations and of course, Escher.
