My name is Dana. I'm a designer & full-stack developer with a previous startup.
I have over 14 years of experience in design and I started front-end development over a decade ago because I felt it would improve me as a designer. Now I can design while understanding how back-end development works, and that kind of experience is very valuable when building design.
My software program of choice is Figma for web & mobile design. I use InDesign to generate professionally designed documents in PDF. I build a custom script in Gulp to speed up front-end development.
I wrote few tutorials about Gulp to help people. I've written:
- "How to start using Gulp in minutes" for developers who want to start using Gulp
- "SCSS Bootstrap starter kit" is a Bootstrap base with Gulp compiler for developers who want to bootstrap their new projects without too much configuration.
I've tutored and trained few students for web design and front-end development. My student is currently successful with freelance and obtained a full-time job.
I work and maintain remotely for several long-term clients with their larger projects while dipping in and out of quick projects. I worked with Delta Airlines, Millers, University of Houston, Payday, and some other companies. I also worked on a few open-source projects which have gone viral on mainstream media and greenlit on Steam.
