Me, me, me...
Hi, my name is Daniel Aakjær Sørensen. And yes, those are letters indeed! Danish is weird a language and don't even get me started on the pronunciation. Right... where was I? I guess I should get to the point and explain what it is that I do, huh?
UI & UX
I always try to design products that guide the user smoothly from on step to the next. I study how it feels, improving the interface and journey until people say: "WOW, this is great!".
I build handcrafted responsive prototypes and templates through short release cycles to test and showcase ideas fast. Prototypes in my opinion are pricesless when iterating UX or UI with clients.
Prototypes gradually mature to a point of being production ready. Refining prototypes and taking them the a production level is a big part of what I do. eventually they are adopted by a main project or handed over as a finished front-end components.
Noticing glitches and bugs is an inevitable part of being a perfectionst. And that I am. I take pride in methodically hunting down pixel imperfections, browser specific issues and usability problems that normal people would not notice.
I have taught beginner to advanced level front-end development skills, from understanding HTML semantics, my thoughts on patterns to look for in a design, planning responsive behavior, CSS naming strategies, to CSS pre-processor techniques and typography.
Drawing characters has been a passion of mine since I was a kid and I still find great joy in doing it professionaly as a supplement to the more technical areas I work in.
