Responsive Corporate web design

Ensa, the European natural Soy and plant based manufacturers requested a complete revamp of their outdated website. They represent the soy producers of soy drinks, desserts, variations to cream and yoghurt etc, all producing according to a natural traditional production process. With this in mind, the assignment came down to a modern, corporate, responsive website, easy to maintain and properly functioning on mobile devices. A well-defined and properly outlined guide was already prepared by their team, which made the Information Architecture phase fairly simple and short. Regarding design, frontend coding […]

Sputnik Media TV WordPress consultancy

For Sputnik Media I was hired as a web/WordPress consultant to help troubleshoot their existing site, WordPress theme and to add some custom code to make certain things possible and to make some plugins behave more nicely or at least pick up styling from the theme instead of going solo. After an analysis of the existing code, feature after feature got added and documented, or sometimes put in use to have examples working. This involved PHP, JS, jQuery, HTML & CSS tweaking and the usual project management. Just my kind […]

Photographer Portfolio Site

For my old and good friend Manu, who became a really good photographer while I wasn’t looking, I built this clean photographer’s portfolio site. Manu wanted it to be clean, I wanted it to be handy for people to wander through the images. And I wanted them to be big. So we went for a big, responsive website with touch navigation. You can flick through the images by clicking or scrolling your mouse. But it’s even nicer on a tablet, or an iPad to swipe through the galleries of awesome […]

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 […]

IFTTT : If this, then that : automatiseer je digitale leven

IFTTT : Put the internet to work for you. Sinds een paar jaar gebruik ik een webservice die misschien voor velen van jullie nog relatief nieuw is : IFTTT.. euh.. wat ? IFTTT staat voor If This Then That, oftewel, Als Dit Dan Dat. Met deze IFTTT tutorial wil ik even laten zien wat het is, hoe het werkt en wat je ermee kan doen Het gaat hier eigenlijk over een webservice die twee andere webservices koppelt met een simpele regel: “als dit gebeurt, doe dan dat”. Een webservice is letterlijk […]
