Web developer with a strong graphic design background

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 8 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.

I am a Web developer and a Graphic designer

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. I love programming but also anything related with graphic design so I consider myself a web designer and developer with a strong graphic design background. 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 in where I have to learn and research solutions. I am an eager self-taught at heart.

Looking for work as a freelancer or part time

I am a web developer currently working as a freelancer. My main expertise is front end development with a strong graphic design background and medium exposure to back end development. I am very focused and driven by SEO best practices, Web Performance and Responsive Web Design. I produce a clean, organised and standard hand-coding. I have passion for my job and I am continuously learning new web technologies and trends. I am looking for freelance, part time or contract positions, working remotely or mixed with on site. I would also consider permanent roles if the job specification were a good fit.
