  • Felder Gruppe (Development)

    Felder is a manufacturer of wood-working machinery. The site is a combination of a presentation site, a portfolio and a collection of success stories from Felder clients.

    My job was to implement PSD designs into WordPress while taking care of maintaining an easy to use admin UI. I also took care of creating a multi-environment setup for Live and Staging, to allow editors to manage content and test new features in a private area while deploying automatically to Live servers when changes are approved.

  • Jubiter Blog (Development)

    Corporate blog with basic functionality. My responsibilities were to implement Sketch designs into WordPress, migrate data from a non-WP CMS and manage an automatic deploy method.

  • homeX Front-end (Development)

    homeX is a store of interior design items. My job was to implement PSD designs into HTML and later on, to integrate HTML designs into Laravel template engine.

  • DWF Agency (Development)

    DWF is a local SEO Agency, which needed an implementation of a certain set of PSD into WordPress. We ended up using Elementor for block layouts, with a bunch of custom widgets for this plugin, developed by myself.

  • Audrie & Daisy Movie Site (Client: IID) (Development)

    Audrie & Daisy is a real-life drama movie about two teenage girls that were sexually assaulted and the impact of this event on their friends and families.

    The theme was created from client's designs and fine-tuned to match the expected functionality.

  • Foundation Cini (Client: Fabvla) (Development)

    I developed both a REST API for a mobile app, the whole front-end and focused on a user-friendly back-end. All the content is manageable via WP.

    Besides that, I migrated the old DB (custom CMS) to WordPress.

    Technologies used: Handlebars, ES6, REST API, Carbon Fields, WPML

  • Handlebar for WordPress (Development)

    I always focus on code quality, and usually mixing PHP and HTML is not a good idea.

    Therefore, I've created a wrapper that will allow complete separation of the two responsibilities.

    Clean PHP, clean HTML for all!

  • WP Plugin: Page Siblings (Development)

    A small admin widget that will display all siblings of a page. Super useful on medium-to-large sites, when there is a hierarchy with several pages on the same level.
