My name is Jonathan Muth and I am a 20 year old webdesigner from Friedrichshafen, Germany. I have been online for more than a decade. Which means that I built my first personal website before I got into middle school and learned how to code while my friends learned how to kiss. I eventually wrapped my head around Content-Management-Systems and began to redesign my personal blog on a somewhat quarterly basis – All without knowing that I was acquiring some valuable skills.
In 2008 I went on a student exchange to the United States where I spent 10 months in the beautiful city of Rochester, NY. At Rochester’s School of the Arts I made first contact with graphic design and photography which quickly turned into more than a hobby. Through the help of some excellent teachers and the unconditional support of the best host family, I was able to stage my very own photo show and went on to my very first paid web design gigs.
Through a happy accident I ended up with an internship at SYNTAX – one of the Middle-East's leading design agencies. It was not until then that I realised I might have a talent in understanding the intersection of design and technology. Even though I had never worked in a professional environment before I was able to contribute from day one.
Since then I have worked with various clients reaching from NGOs to medium sized businesses. As of now I am a student of Communication and Cultural Sciences at Zeppelin University splitting my time between the library and the code editor.
This summer I had the opportunity to work with elobau - a leading manufacturer of sensor technology. Together with Maximilian Illers I designed and programmed the touchscreen user interface for a new kind of employee self service terminal.
This is a selection of things I have worked on recently. They reflect both my design as well as my coding abilities and should leave you with a first impression of my way of solving problems.
I will help you to turn your ideas into visual concepts and wireframes that will allow you to communicate them more clearly. This will give you and I a much better idea of where the project is headed, allowing us to plan for content and features expected to be part of your future web presence.
After we have outlined the basic functionality of your website, we can begin developing a visual style that will complement your content. It can be derived from your current corporate identity but it could also be something entirely new.
Once we have decided what your website is should work and look like, I will dive right in – turning wireframes and mockups into actual websites. Usually this means integrating the design with a content-management system, which will allow you to mange your website by yourself and without knowing you way around an HTML-Editor.
