I’m a Senior Frontend Designer
My career start with UI Design in 2004: Photoshop (colors, shapes, layouts, typography, alignments) & CSS3 Media Queries (Method of applying styles based on media information. Includes things like page and device dimensions) https://caniuse.com/css-mediaqueries
I’m tried to extend my knowledge at the age of semantic WEB: HTML5 (markup language) & constantly arriving new CSS3 modules:
- border-radius — https://caniuse.com/border-radius
- colors — https://caniuse.com/css3-colors
- box-sizing — https://caniuse.com/css3-boxsizing
- CSS Grid System— https://caniuse.com/css-grid
I’m taleted in jQuery that time, later on I have been a course instructor in a Computer School. jQuery is pretty enought to understand by the knowledge of HTML & CSS. It was my handy toolset for UI/UX demos too. After time goes by Angular & React &Vue would have needed an OOP programming capabilities from a designer, so I can not make this step. In the design area, Photoshop has rivals: Figma, XD, Sketch.
“By the time the tea was ready, the tea service has broken.”
I’m stayed with my designer skills in one side: UX, UI, Usability, Accessibility and the other side with: HTML, RWD, CSS, SCSS (CSS prepocessor), Grid Layout, Typography, jQuery, GIT, PugJS (HTML preprocessor). With huge experience of CMS: Drupal, Wordpress, 11ty, Magento.
So that’s why I call myself a Front-End Designer.
Who is not a UI Designer. Nor a Front-End Developer:
