Crembl-–-Keep-you-posted_1410

Crembl app website with WordPress

Crembl takes the hassle out of paperwork. And if you know me, you know I don’t like paperwork. Digital is my middle name. So when the people of Crembl approached me in helping out with building their website I was more than happy to lend them my ear. The objective was a site with an attractive site landingpage, with clear call to actions, one page to explain everything more in detail and a sort of FAQ which could be easily expanded. Clear and to the point. I didn’t use any fancy WordPress […]

single-page-website-Domo-Luno-Mechelen-1410

Single page real estate website on WordPress

For the project Domo Luno, which will consist of two separate buildings, on different locations in Mechelen, I thought of a single page split-screen website, making it a sort of double one-pager. The visual guide lent itself really well for it, and the initial ideas I didn’t like that much so I proposed this alternative idea. It makes the project stand out and gives it a bit of a wow factor through the smooth css transitions and simplicity of behaviour. Inside each project has it’s own page with in-page navigation […]

Sony-E-Commerce-Mobile-Journey

Sony E-Commerce journey UX prototype

To establish a better experience for mobile and tablet users, we, that is the UX team I worked in at Sony from 2010-2014, devised a prototype for the E-Commerce journey. Roughly translated it meant re-building the current store with a easier to use interface, behaving responsive on smaller screens and adding a lefthand navigation with a facteted filter search to make choosing between the various options of a specific category much more user-friendly. Improving user experience with the already established frontend framework and design guidelines. After drawing this out on paper […]

WP-REST-API_featured_image

Intro to the WordPress REST API

Last Monday I presented a talk on the awesome WordPress REST API at WordPress Meetup Antwerp, the API where lots of people were waiting for some time and is available since last year. I myself went to London end of January for a Day Of Rest, a conference completely dedicated to WordPress and the many usages of the REST API, how it came to be and what the possibilities and pitfalls are when deploying it in a real project. So far, I only dabbled with it in test environments and […]

AJAX and WordPress intro at showcase meetup Antwerpen

AJAX & WordPress for Frontend Editing

Small showcase presentation about adding AJAX functionality to a WordPress site. Why is AJAX useful, how can it be applied, what can be done with it.
It is interesting when you don’t want people accessing the backend, but still have them contribute, by writing, uploading, voting etc. Therefore you see a lot of AJAX functionality in sites which thrive on user-generated content, like e.g. Pinterest, Facebook, Gmail etc.. Read further how you can apply these techniques to leverage your site as well

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 […]
