A right-brainer by day and occasional blogger by night, you've landed on a place where I live and breathe all things art, design, culture and fashion. You'll find me documenting my life in the creative field, endless travels with friends and family and a bit of food.
I’m over the moon I could finally get my website to be mobile friendly! You might think it’s super simple and not that much of a big deal but to me it is hah! Especially for a non web developer like me who knows the basics of coding…it’s a challenge.
For months it’s been horrible knowing visitors can only properly view my site on a computer. I’ve been reconstructing my site to make it fully responsive for mobile and tablet devices for 1 full week. Working as a designer at Jin & Co. is almost like being back in class, it’s very rewarding because I learn something new about the web everyday. Obviously web plays an important role in today’s society, especially in my life. It doesn’t help when you add your website into your instagram profile only to find out that it’s not mobile friendly! Initially my website was done with very basic knowledge of coding 3 years ago and ever since I started being an employee of Jin & Co. I worked with web developers and revisited more code again.
I think in the light of design it’s extremely useful knowing how to code. Not saying it’s essential but personally, I find it handy. Most of us are so focused with the web we might encounter a situation where coding is necessary either for our own business site or to understand whether certain elements you design in photoshop is practical enough to construct for the web. Designers get so crazy over fancy typography and cool visual effects (yes I’m guilty of this) but when we’re talking about user experience it’s not ideal to implement these kinds of things in all scenarios. To a certain degree, understanding the technical side enables you to provide a better user experience for your customers. It’s also an added bonus to have a web developer boyfriend talk about programming languages….that’s right, our phone calls are about websites and coding oh snap.
