Axe-Less-is-more

Axe website

For Axe, the well-known brand of deodorants, bodyspray and stylingproducts, we were asked to build a new website, focusing on lifestyle, music and fashion. Information architecture was already done by HeadOffice, the actual build of the site we discussed with them, opting for full AJAX navigation, homepage videoplayer, multi-language, masonry layout, infinite scroll, contests with and without Spotify Connect, music player, and some nifty animation and transitions in navigation, hover effects and so on. Preferrably built with WordPress as backoffice, since they already were proficient with that. In a few […]

Homepage-L'Oreal-Paris

L’Oreal homepage frontend design & development

For the new website for L’Oréal they asked me to take care of the frontend development for the newly designed homepage. A nice design was provided, and after some back and forth discussion we set out to build a visual rich landing page enticing people to click toward their interest, with some nice behaviour effects, zoom, fade etc, clear call to actions and big, nice fonts. Building of the existing grid, but using a clear module based approach as I usually do, leveraging the power of Sass, we created a versatile […]

Welkom-bij-UNICEF-Belgie-705

Unicef website consultancy & development

For the new to be built Unicef website, I got the request to fill in the role of frontend developer, WordPress theme developer and general WordPress consultant to make a static design come to life and function as it should. This involved checking and revising the frontend work that was done til then, make adaptations and different page templates and test and fix certain templates and behaviours. One of the things we stumbled upon in the beginning was the initial choice for qTranslate collided with a good SEO approach, so we […]

Pukkelpop Lineup prelisten YouTube Spotify Google Music #pkp15 chrome extension

Since I am a pretty avid music fan, a regular Pukkelpop visitor and a web developer/ux designer, I like my music as my technology, new, exciting and innovative. And working in webdevelopment and UX and browsing the web 24/7 made me pretty critical too on how things should work (for me). And if they don’t, how I can make ‘em work for me. One thing that I missed on the Pukkelpop site is that I wanted to quickly listen to all the 200+ artists on the roster. And quickly, just from […]

Responsible Web Design – Talk WordCampNL 2014

In 2012 I talked about Responsive Web Design at WordCampNL, a methodology about which I was very convinced at the time, and meanwhile the rest of the world too. This year I wanted to take the acronym a step further and gave it a slightly different meaning, Responsible Web Design (or Rant on Web Design). With that definition I want to step away from the purely technical side of things, but focus more on UX, design and content and how they fit together from a user- and frontend-perspective. User Experience […]

WordPress & how to best manage specific content

WordPress is great .. but .. I’ve been working with WordPress for 6 years or something. And most of the times that’s a bunch of fun, and I always find a way to make something work, but… some stuff is still a bit hard to do (or I’m not aware of a better method). And sometimes, it’s hard to choose on which tradeoffs to make. With the arrival of Custom Post Types in 3.0 the Managing of Content in our System became a lot more powerful for instance, but it doesn’t […]
