Learn more about me - Sandra Andres - Frontend Developer

Welcome!

I’m Sandra, a frontend developer based in Berlin with an addiction for fitness and health. When I’m not working on markup snippets or lovely tiny design ideas you’ll find me gathering information about NLP or books worth reading.

 

This is what I’m doing

My work is marked through an overall careful approach from start to finish and the aim to satisfy the client while working within a team of enthusiastic people. I love to develop beautiful and clean frontends while taking advantage of technologies that have been proven, yet thinking future-oriented. In the course of this I’d like to be involved in the different processes that lead to the agreed on definition of done:

  • conceptional part including functional requirements and user stories
  • wireframing
  • incorporating styleguides respectively their creation
  • implementation of the so determined structure into a solid and reusable markup framework
  • providing an aesthetically pleasing surface via stylesheets

What is most important is the content that should be displayed in response to its displaying medium. Not always the usage of hypermodern frameworks is recommended since performance needs to be put into consideration everytime a further source is integrated. Every new technology and all that is hidden behind specific buzzwords should always be evaluated in context with the required outcome. Not everything is useful for every project, no matter how fancy and modern it may be.

If you think my approach and the skills I have to offer could fit well to your company don’t hesitate to contact me, I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

2006 – now

Owner of sensational arts / was-andres

Loving the idea to go along with a project from its beginning to the point where the client is happy I started my humble subsidiary occupation with the main focus on building or redesigning websites for small businesses. My work here includes consulting & conception, wireframing, prototyping, graphic design and sometimes print.

It is always as interesting as inspiring for me to meet a new client and gather relevant first information about what he wants while having a nice cup of coffee or tea. Some last examples of projects I have been working on where the following:
