In 2012, a new Master, ‘Online Marketing’, was added to the program at the UAB Communication Faculty. The graphic user interface was beautifully designed by one of the Master’s students. He gave me the Photoshop files containing the design of every page of the site, including buttons and icons upon which I started the front-end development. I wrote the HTML (source code) and the CSS (stylesheets). Being a designer myself, I wanted the final result in the web browser to be exactly the same as the graphics created by the designer so I aim for pixel-perfect coding.
Thanks to the possibilities of CSS3, many background images were avoided, such as gradients, allowing for faster loading.

- Web accessibility
Based in Barcelona and working in the cloud, I love international flavoured collaborations. I’m fluent in English, Spanish, Dutch, German and French, like to travel and am curious about different cultures. Your project can be discussed in your office enjoying a cup of tea or we can set up a Skype call. There's always a way to communicate!
In 1998, I earned my bachelors in graphic design in Breda, The Netherlands. Just as the internet bubble formed, I moved to Spain and eagerly studied web design and interfaces on my own. Now, I combine design with teaching, as I love to share my knowledge with students and clients alike. A full work history can be found at MissPixel’s Linkedin profile.
The joy of work is in the balance: organising and taking care of customers in the user experience field, mathematical challenges in HTML coding and composing bright colourful palettes on screen and paper.
These three perspectives harmoniously come together into one goal: making people happy with useful and beautiful designs. Boy, do I love my job!
