An english and irish Setters farm, located in south-west of France. They raise pointer dogs to hunt, mainly woodcock.
The story behind
The client came to me with one only idea: they wanted something different than this. Not that hard do you think... Well, it's sure ugly but it has a lot of functionnalities that a static website does not have. So we decided to go for a CMS.
Wordpress or Drupal ?
As long as it works fine & it doesn't cost much, the client doesn't care. Both solution are effective, flexible, robust & free. But I would prefer Wordpress thanks to its less time consuming templating system - and time is money for both side.
Custom Wordpress theme
So we created a solution to perfectly fit the client's need. It can handle various race of dogs, has a built in genealogy tree, is media friendly, can blog, is information architecture focused, is e-commerce ready (for later on)...etc.
A non-profit wich help non-profits to design stuffs for free, located in Geneva.
«Just a landing page while we're getting ready...»
It's what they said so I said «OK ! Let's do it».
— «We also need people to be able to register on both side (non-profits & designers) while we're getting ready.»
— «So we have to implement a mailing subscription."
— «Yes, and can you make it HTML so it doesn't look so cheap ?»
— «Well, I can but...»
— «Perfect, let's go then, thank you so much for your help !»
I didn't hear anything ever since.
I'm a 29 years old self-taught web front-end developer, positive by nature, social, creative, self-critic (Ex: I look like an arse on this photo) and even funny sometimes...
I design & develop CMS based on Wordpress for small businesses and non-profits. I mainly focus on cross-device & -browser compatibilities, W3C standards , information architecture and SEO.
I developed those skills on my own, while working full time as a landscape engineer, so I'm always ready to meet new challenges even if it involves lots of "staying up late at night".
At work, I take responsibilities when it is mine to take but I never step on people's feet. Criticism is, for me, a constructive way to improve yourself and the job, so I like to know what people think and I don't hesitate to speak my mind either.
Today, I feel I've reached a level where I need other people to confront my work and myself, so now I am aspiring to work in a company where I can learn from others.
You have to be aware of the fact that, while I was teaching myself how to be a geek, I worked 9 physical hours, 5 days a week under rain & hit. If you give me the opportunities to work, full time, with what I'm passionated about, I can progress really fast & be a major asset of your company.
