At my job I serve as a link between design and development. I focus on the look and feel of a product, as well as its technical feasibility. I work with HTML, CSS, JS, and C#.
An extensive case study about how I designed and coded my own mini CSS framework, and a React app for my passion project about Nordic tourism.
A long read, focusing on designing, prototyping, and technical implementation.
An extensive case study about designing, branding, and redesigning the homepage for my side project about adult education.
A long read focusing on how I work, and how I approach UX questions and feedback.
I’m a front-end designer and developer, with a genuine passion for both.
I am educated in marketing and multimedia design, and took several courses as well as did a lot of “learning-by-doing” as a freelancer before joining the Appvestor team.
I’ve been shifting careers from customer service and online marketing, through e-commerce and landing page design, to front-end design and development. I’ve found my passion in bettering the digital world.
Coming from marketing and customer service, it’s natural to me to always prioritize users. Marketing is all about research, critical thinking, testing, verifying and adapting a product or service. Much like in UX, catering to the end-user is in focus. So that’s what I do with the interfaces I build. I strive to make business goals and user needs meet.
“I have known Petra for many years now and known her to be a knowledgeable designer. However, now I have the opportunity to call her my colleague in my academy to teach people programming. Despite the relatively short time that has passed since we started to work together, she has already demonstrated great skills in front end design and architecture. Petra works fast and precise, even under pressure and in challenging circumstances. She is a trustworthy colleague and I hope to work with her on the long run!”
“Petra is a web designer who does not simply get the job done, but brings her creative ideas and marketing-oriented approach to her work! And this approach helped a great deal to our company and our online customers, as well!”
