Experience
  • LeadBoost (Development)

    I was trusted with developing a custom WordPress theme based on the design provided. I built the templates in HTML/CSS and translated static HTML files into WordPress (PHP). The templates' workflow was controlled by the Yeoman generator responsible for the build process: assets and CSS.

    The website is mobile-friendly.

    A WordPress CMS is powered with Advanced Custom Fields Pro which is a solid base for a user-friendly CMS environment. The CMS is built to provide maximum effect while only needing minimum effort from the user. It takes the image sizes handling process from the user and letting him or her not have to worry about the image-cropping and resizing process.

    There are two types of content on the website. First when the user is restricted only to the information provided in the design. Second one is the blog where the user utilizes the native WordPress editor to enter whatever content he or she needs to.

  • Indigo Studio Pilates & Fitness (Development)
    http://indigostudio.pl/

    I was trusted with giving a fresh face to an established fitness and pilates studio.

    I designed the main page templates in Adobe Ilustrator. I created all the studio's identity elements based on the updated website.

    Since WordPress was the CMS of choice, I installed the Timber Framework as a plugin and used the Twig HTML templating language to create the templates. There was no HTML/CSS stage. I did not use any PHP. The WordPress theme was crafted in SCSS and Twig files. The whole process was controlled by the Chisel generator (one of the Yeoman generators) which controlled the build process of the assets and the css.

    The website is and will be in continuous development as the studio's owners are quite a dynamic duo.

  • Octonauts for MiniMini+ and CANAL+ (Development)
    http://www.miniminiplus.pl/minisite/oktonauci/

    One of my clients is CANAL+ with its TV channels and the kids channel, MiniMini+, is one of them I often design and develop landing pages for cartoons and toys manufacturers.

    Octonauts is an HTML/CSS and PHP landing page. It offers some information and digital extras about the cartoon.

  • Website Administration (Development)
    http://www.domoplus.pl/

    I administer the CANAL+ websites: Domoplus.pl, Kuchniaplus.pl, and Miniminiplus.pl.

    Working with the IT team, I make sure that the websites are up and running and that the content is up to date. I created the graphical assets for the websites and designed the ad campaigns which consist of banners, landing pages, and a contest for the global ad buying client.
