Hi, I’m Ramon, I’ve been a web designer and frontend developer for over twelve years now. I spend most of my days writing Sass and HTML, reviewing code, testing websites, and sometimes taking photos. I live in the wonderful London, after moving over from Mexico a couple of years ago.

Being a web developer means I get to work in a very creative and dynamic environment, with a team of people who love what they do as much as I do, where everyday we help each other get better at building the web.

This is who I am

Me

I was born in Venezuela back in 1977 from a singular family who taught me how to live a my life well while trying to make the world a better place. I grew up surrounded by art, creative people and sometimes very challenging circumstances.

Having worked since 1994 in the graphic design industry, I started a small design agency with my older brother in 2002, which is still running. I created my first website there, and I’ve been doing it ever since.

I like to be up to date with design and coding trends, I love to read and going on trips. I love Music, Pink Floyd, Marillion, Radiohead among many others. I also love to watch a good movie with my partner, and a piece of strawberry cheesecake with milk.

About this website

This site is built with Statamic, a very flexible, flat-file cms, with HTML5, CSS3, using Adobe Fireworks / Sketch and Sublime Text 2 under a Mac OSX environment. Icons come from Fontello and the fonts are Bree and Clear Sans from Fontsquirrel. The grid system is Hoisin.scss.

This time around, the design was meant to be only a vehicle for the content, while keeping some of the colours and details from the previous design. I wanted a website that was simple, easy to use, responsive and JavaScript free (except for the Disqus commenting system).
