This site was lovingly designed and coded using valid XHTML and CSS. Character image was hand-drawn and later on colored via Illustrator.

Uses mootools inspired navigation, horizontal scrolling by The Horizontal Way and Easy Slider for my portfolio.

About Joy

I was born and raised in Manila, Philippines and went to College for five years to get a degree in Computer Engineering. After my graduation in 2000, I had no idea what to do with my supposedly acquired knowledge. Because truth be told, computers bore me. Still, I applied for the first job opening that was somehow related to my course - Technical Support Engineer. It was fine but I knew I wanted to do something else. Not fly to the moon as my first option when I was a little girl but one that doesn't involve tinkering with hardware.

In 2001, my break came when the company I was working for needed a website. They didn't have a web development department that time so they browsed through our old resumes to see who can handle the job. That was when they learned how I used to paint and that I enjoy dabbling with graphics software. I (and three others) were asked to give the project a try. I was a non-believer at first because surely, something as fun as drawing pretty pictures couldn't be a real career? But it was and it still is, this website being the main evidence.

It was the turning point of my life. As soon as I learned that I can convert graphics to HTML (Boy, was I wrong about computers being boring!), I instantly fell in love with web designing. It's not just the graphics but the constant challenge of having to learn new things everyday. From composition to typography, to colour schemes and grids, to CSS to theming applications and many other kick-ass applications waiting to be discovered. There's never a dull moment, even when troubleshooting IE6 (which is always a pain) or just updating copy. The web design community is both inspiring and competitive it's impossible not to become a better designer after surrounding yourself with creative people.

With over 7 years of web design experience, I am still amazed and thankful that I get paid doing what I love. To be able to create and translate into graphics at least half of what's inside my head and make someone happy because of it, now that's a dream job if there ever was one.

What I Do

Website Design

With the right colors, user-friendly navigation and attractive box layouts, I can give your website a professional look and feel. You can choose from my template-only package or 5-8 pages of static pages, converted in valid XHTML and CSS.

Graphics Design / Branding

From creative website banners, logo designs, brochures and business cards. I also design attractive email newsletters that works on most popular email clients.

Website Coding

If you have your own website mockup or your current website still use tables, I can convert it to CSS-based layouts that will display properly on all major browsers.

Website Makeovers / Consultation

Your website has been created 5 or 7 years ago. Aside from the design, the codes and copy need to be updated badly. Send me a link to your current site and we'll work together to keep it updated with the latest design trends and technology.

Theming / Skinning

I accept theming of most commonly used off-the-shelf applications such as Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, CMS Made Easy, osCommerce, Ning. You can supply the graphics or I can also design the themes for you. If the application that you're using is not included on this list, please send me an email and I'll take a look at it. I like learning new things and we might be able to work something out.

CMS / Wordpress / Blog Installation

Not being able to update your pages is a no-no these days. And did you know that having a blog is the best way to increase your sales? In fact, it's one of the most effective online marketing strategies out there. Take advantage of this technology now and see a huge difference on your business. I can help you set up your first blog or convert your existing site to Wordpress (a simple yet very powerful CMS tool) so you can update whenever you like.
