Petra Gergely

UI designer with front-end development skills.

I am a Multimedia Design student at KEA. I started this course to expand and learn more about prototyping, UI/UX and front-end languages. My goal is to work as a UI designer/developer, where I can put both my designer and developer skills to good use.

I used to work in marketing before, and I found that my experience and education in marketing also proves useful in UX, namely in better understanding user behaviour.

My story

I am a Multimedia Design student at KEA. I started this course to expand and learn more about prototyping, UI/UX and front-end languages. My goal is to work as a UI designer/developer, where I can put both my designer and developer skills to good use.

I used to work in marketing before, and I found that my experience and education in marketing also proves useful in UX, namely in better understanding user behaviour.

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

I took a little detour to get a BsC in economics, and after finishing university I worked as a social media intern for 6 months. However that wasn’t exactly my cup of tea, so I started working with web support and improving my  design skills – both by self-teaching and  by “learning by doing”.

I took a web design course, won a Google Scholarship and participated in Udacity’s Front-end developer challenge, and I ‘m now taking my skills to a more professional levels at KEA in Copenhagen, as a Multimedia Design student. Besides school I work at a Danish marketing agency, providing website support for companies in the Nordsjælland area.

People who've worked with me say...

“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!”
