01 Biography

My name is Stijn Bessem

I am a visual/web designer based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Specialised in graphic design and web design. Creating beautiful, usable, professional websites & applications using best practice accessibility and the latest W3C web standards guidelines, resulting in semantic and SEO friendly HTML5 and CSS. All my websites are lovingly hand coded. For all my design assignments my weapons of choice are Photoshop, Sketch & Illustrator for creating layouts, then Coda 2 to produce clean semantic HTML5 and CSS.

From workflow diagrams to detailed user interface mockups, I love shaping and crafting on-screen experiences. I am passionate about making sure that systems, interfaces, language and graphics are human-friendly, emotive, aesthetically pleasing, clear, on-brand and usable - with a touch of mellow smoothness.
