This high quality fabrics producer is located in Montmelò, Catalunya. They requested a website that contained their catalogue where clients could consult specific items when placing their order. I was responsible for the entire project, which included: information architecture, graphic user interface, front end development, and together with a programmer, web development.
The project kicked off with a visit to their factory where the owner gave me a grand tour. Beyond the project itself, we discussed their rich history and the vast collection of fabrics they have in stock. It was of particular importance to understand the classification of the fabrics, as I needed to know how their clients interacted with the catalogue in order to build a user friendly site structure.
The website wasn’t expected to change much, only the catalogue was getting new fabrics. Therefore, I recommended that we implement one dynamic module which would permit the administrator to manage the catalogue autonomously.
Regarding the visual aspect, I designed a warm interface that seamlessly incorporated the content without taking away from the desired look and feel. After all, it’s the fabrics which need to stand out!

Based in Barcelona and working in the cloud, I love international flavoured collaborations. I’m fluent in English, Spanish, Dutch, German and French, like to travel and am curious about different cultures. Your project can be discussed in your office enjoying a cup of tea or we can set up a Skype call. There's always a way to communicate!
In 1998, I earned my bachelors in graphic design in Breda, The Netherlands. Just as the internet bubble formed, I moved to Spain and eagerly studied web design and interfaces on my own. Now, I combine design with teaching, as I love to share my knowledge with students and clients alike. A full work history can be found at MissPixel’s Linkedin profile.
The joy of work is in the balance: organising and taking care of customers in the user experience field, mathematical challenges in HTML coding and composing bright colourful palettes on screen and paper.
These three perspectives harmoniously come together into one goal: making people happy with useful and beautiful designs. Boy, do I love my job!
