The creative force is the fuel in any process that seeks to beget something new in this world. In my work I strive to culture aspects of creativity through original designs, original technical solutions and original approaches to building a customer relationship. Sometimes the question I ask you will baffle you and hopefully the answers we find will surprise you even more.
The most intangible aspect of my work is to understand my clients. Over the time I had many different clients, from Yogis in Texas, to freelancers in the creative field of Berlin, to high-tech companies and big real estate agencies.
There is one aspect of these clients that binds brings it all together: All of them are humans.
Building a connection and a trust relationship is the first step, (pro-tip: Works well with romantic partnerships too!). This is also one of the most rewarding aspects of it, getting to know you. Because it is this ability that allows the best result, or how can you gift a person, without knowing them a little bit?
Every client is different. Growing up in a 12 sqm apartment in post-soviet russia of the 90’s I knew little of real estate business, nor did I know anything about cars before a road trip let me stranded with a non-moving car on a Texas Junkyard in bitter cold winter for almost 2 weeks.
Curiosity is what allows me to figure out what it is about your business that needs to be done, combined with the experience of years as the CTO of a brain training company, I see myself as someone who wants to study the big picture of your business, not just some technical or aesthetic aspect of your website. I won’t be snobbish about it though, just coding is kind of my thing too.
Technical skills require careful execution. If there is one thing I was imbued with by my upbringing is to always do the best possible work, or sometimes to the detriment of character, try to be the best. Diligence to me also means meeting deadlines, be available and approachable. Diligence is the sharpened knife to a chef’s kitchen.
I have been working with Wordpress for many years now and with computers so much longer - Yada yada yada, you will find this “X years in the field” pitch on every other developer website. I can tell you that I have been coding for a solid 20 years of my life, check out the portfolio if you are interested in getting to know my technical background.
More importantly having experience to me means to an even higher degree finding answers to unanswered questions efficiently, to communicate with you and to understand your situation. Real understanding sparks excitement and triggers interdisciplinary connections on getting things done for your particular situation, a website is rather a means to an end for me. More than anything this is what I find pride in: Finding complete solutions for you, rather than just being the provider of excellent Wordpress templates.
Yes no technical exposition is complete without a sense of magic: A sense of making the impossible happen. More so magic is the transition from a vague idea to a tangible reality. When we speak for the first time it is this idea that you present and when we raise a toast to the completion of the project, it is the tangible reality you go out with. With magic I understand finding means to make your dream a reality, it encompasses a sense of completion. That is why I focus on making design, development and consulting, to be able to give a one-stop solution to the success of your endeavour.
