I make websites from scratch, even without the help of frameworks like bootstrap, using: HTML5, CSS3, SASS, JQUERY, Basi di JS, Basi di PHP (especially for forms).
According to the Global Mobile Trends report, Internet access through mobile devices will increase from 48% in 2018 to 60% in 2020 and will involve about 4.7 billion people.
This is why I pay particular attention to responsivity of the sites I realize.
There are many techniques to make a website "light" including:
image optimization, minification of the code, gzip data compression, cache optimization.
Waiting three seconds with an animated progress bar is very different from a blank page.
This very simple example shows how important the UI/UX.
Not long ago I wrote an article about it.
I founded yuppiDay thanks to an idea born from me and from the Prof. of English Domenico Bertone
The logo, the colors and all the graphics have been designed and created by me with the support of many feedbacks requested from users.
The videos of the English course were recorded in a studio (video, audio and lights), edited and published by me.
To date, more than 1,800 students have purchased the course online with positive feedback.

SIIP has requested a graphic and architecture update of the site.
The site had to absolutely retain its identity. SIIP wanted a site that was completely personalized.
To satisfy the requests, I first created the architecture and then the graphics with the Adobe XD program and, after presenting the layout, I made the site from scratch with: HTML, SASS and some JS libraries.

FAHD is a commercial reality that boasts more than ten years of activity, has always sold offline and, given the growth of online sales, has decided to enter the world of Ecommerce.
I decided to satisfy FAHD requests by profoundly modifying a WP / Woocommerce template; I also did the restyling of the logo.
A historic business opened since 1948.
Agrigarden asked for a brightly colored site that could transmit "air of freshness".
I met his requests through vivid color palettes and photos (made by me) modified ad hoc.
Many other things are necessary for those who do my job: manage a host space, manage backups, use HTACCESS, use staging, use secure protocols such as HTTPS, use FTP and much more.
Among the priorities will always be finding the best solution in the shortest time.
I use the Adobe package every day: Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Premiere, which is why I can use them with great familiarity.
Before Adobe I used Open Source software like: GIMP, Darktable and Inkscape. For GIMP I helped to correct errors in the official Italian manual.
Let me show you my first Artwork made with GIMP.

Learn to use a software is relatively simple, what I was trying to improve was the design, driven by this need I decided to enroll in the International School COMICS finishing the course with a score of 28/30.
At Comics I learned the importance of: Styles, Proportions, Shape, Spaces, Fonts, Colors, Coordinated Graphics, Presentation, Target, Optimization and especially Functionality. My Guru Prof. Biagio taught me that Design must be "first and foremost functional and if time remains... beautiful".
Over the years I've accumulated a lot of graphic design work, which is why I'll only show a few of them:
I have made this video with Photoshop, Premiere and After Effect.

A project carried out by Prof. Marchiori (the "grandfather" of Google), which I followed since the Volunia project.
Negapedia is one of his latest projects, it allows you to understand how many controversies there have been in the various publications in wikipedia.
I proposed the graphic restyling of the layout by repositioning the elements, optimizing the spaces, rethinking the logo, using other fonts... Prof. Marchiori appreciated my proposal.

This too is a project that I wanted to carry out with the sole aim of satisfying my question "If San Carlo asked me for a restyling, how would I do it? ".
To make it more fun, I decided once again not to use frameworks and start from scratch.
A real "hard work", I tried to keep the San Carlo identity as much as possible through: shapes, colours, fonts, spaces, images.

Everything started with the purchase of my beloved entry level sony aplha 55v.
I spent unforgettable moments immersed in nature, hours waiting in search of the shot that could communicate what I felt in those magic moments. I learned a lot from photography and I'm sure I still have a lot to give.
I love Open Source projects, they give so much to the community without asking anything in return.
I wanted to thank some projects with shots, for this reason I participated in three contests of three operating systems (Ubuntu LTS, Ubuntu, Mint).
The communities chose my shots and inserted them as official wallpapers in the operating systems, a gesture that filled me with joy.
► Ubuntu LTS
► Linux Mint
The passion for photography has also given me a lot on graphics (especially raster). I publish some photos in my personal profile.
Thanks for your time 💚
