petra gergely

front-end designer & developer at appvestor

I shifted careers from marketing to front-end design and development. I experienced that marketing skills help me create better designs that make business goals and user needs meet. 


your journey north

An extensive case study about how I designed and coded my own mini CSS framework, and a React app.

Your Journey North is my passion project, an informative website about nordic tourism aiming to educate tourists, and thereby help locals deal with the recent increased influx of tourists to some of the world’s most remote areas.

A long read, focusing on designing, prototyping, and technical implementation.

akademi for programmering

An extensive case study about designing and redesigning the homepage.

Akademi for Programmering, Oslo helps people shift careers to full-stack programming through a practical and intensive 6-month course. It’s my side project; I take care of their webpage and teach UI/UX and front-end development here.

A long read focusing on how I work, and how I approach UX questions.


“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!”
