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!".

Prototypes

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.

Front-end deliveries

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.

Testing

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.

Teaching

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.

Character design

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.

Whereabouts

I currently live in Copenhagen, Denmark, but I have been fortunate enough to spend 3-4 years of the last 7 outside Denmark, combining traveling and working, exploring cities and places all around the world.

In 2016 was spent working for two cool danish start-up companies, Servicelovers and Printix. This year I got the chance to be part a new eco-camp called Salt Whistle Camp in St. Vincent. More on this later.
