AboutThings you should know about me
Who am I ?
My name is Adrian and I’m a self-taught web designer living in Gdańsk, Poland with my wife and daughter.
I make websites, but I don’t like to see my role as limited as “UI designer” or “Front‑End Developer”. My goal is to give the best user experience possible and I truly enjoy working on the intersection of design and development. I care about design aspects such as composition, color and typography, just as much as performance and progressive enhancement. My specialization is responsive web design (RWD).
More about me
After 7 years of corporate work as a financial controller, in March 2013 I decided to leave my job and become a web designer.
I was always fascinated by design and the art of personal creation, but I’ve had no experience of designing for web and no knowledge of web development. Changing career was the toughest decision I’ve ever had to make. I just wanted to make things, to solve real problems and elevate a beautiful design into something truly functional, useful and enjoyable. Now, it’s a big part of my life.
As you see, experience in web design field isn’t my strongest side, but I believe that passion, strong motivation and practice is the best way to become great in this proffesion.
