My story

I am studying Multimedia Design at KEA. I started this course to get skills I couldn’t get while I was working. I made a lot of websites and digital design over the past 4 years, and I want to learn more about prototyping, UI and UX, and work as a UI/UX designer or a front-end developer.

Web design for me started as a hobby in my teen years, when I used to sit in my room and create templates for MySpace or create artistry for DeviantArt.

I took a little detour to economics, and after finishing university and getting my BsC in Marketing, I worked as a social media intern. 6 months later, when one of our colleagues left, an opportunity showed up to work with webpages, and webshops - and I grabbed it!

I started a course to improve my web design skills. I became the link between the client and design and development. Later, I took freelancing jobs and learned more web design and UI design - both by self-teaching and "learning by doing".

Experience

I have many years of experience with CSS, HTML and Adobe softwares – as well as some other graphic softwares -, and an open mind for any new ones. I'm a quick learner, versatile, with a can-do attitude. I thrive in an environment filled with different tasks.

I am reliable, value feedback, and work well independently, as well as in a team. Working as a freelancer I have learnt to be organized, pay special attention to details in a client brief.

I co-operated with other designers, developers, and marketers, even worked as a project manager, and a freelancer, and taught trainees.

What is it like to work with me?

“Before Petra arrived to this agency, all graphics were done by me. Later on, due to the lack of time it required from me, I trusted Petra with these tasks – and I got to understand what it’s like to work with a professional. I gave up graphics very soon, since her works resulted in far better feedback from our clients’. Since our co-operation started, we are seen as the professionals we are. This standard of design represents a different values, creates different ideas about us in our clients’ minds. Their perceptions about us has improved greatly, and I’m proud of everything single one of our graphical products that left this office. Thank you, Petra, for your valuable work!”

“Petra helped with my personal website where she dilligently and efficiently created both the design and the structure. I initially had certain wishes for the website that due to limits on the hosting platform were unavailable, but Petra was very knowledgable about the alternatives. Any feedback or questions I had were answered quickly and I am positive we arrived at the best possible solution.

I hereby give Petra my best recommendations!”
