What I’m working on

  • Ok, it’s not really working, but I attended WordCamp Europe, a conference about WordPress, this year in Berlin, Germany. I had a great time with my sweet, geeky friends and made some new friends. I learned a lot and got motivated and inspired. Thank you all! 🙂
  • Launched a new site for ExpAnt24. It was my first real cooperation with Studio Maria, 2 of the finest Liesbeth’s I know. 😉
  • Built a landing page for a campaign for the product FNG and another one for the product VGN from YUN, a company that is popularising probiotherapy
  • Launched a membership site for VVAG, an association of doctors for people with disabilities
  • The WordPress version of a site about global warming that loads in less than 10 kb (globalwarning.blog, still in the making).
    I was pleasantly surprised when Jack Lenox mentioned this little project
  • Contributed to Twenty Nineteen, the new WordPress default theme, with full support for the new block editor (Gutenberg). That is the theme you are looking at right now. 🙂 It has passed 1 million active installs! 🎉 Give the new editor a try with this theme or build your own based on it.
  • Hopes to be working on the story of LittleBigThings when procrastination is fading… 😉
  • Learning more Javascript and Gutenberg
  • Being pleasantly distracted by musical ideas and projects, and things that are much more important in life than web design 🙂

In general, I enjoy creating simple, uncluttered websites with a small footprint.
I also love contributing to WordPress, or to more than a 3rd of the web.

Building a presentation in the WordPress Customizer

In my talk at WordCamp Antwerp 2018, I tried to summarize the benefits of the Customizer for users as well as for designers and developers. To do this, I built a presentation in the Customizer.

In this post I am showing you how you can build a presentation using the presentation theme (WordPresent) I created.

“When people talk about travelling to the past, they worry about radically changing the present by doing something small.

But barely anyone in the present really thinks that they can radically change the future by doing something small.”

What I’m reading

  • Ruined by design by Mike Monteiro – a book about how designers are the gate keepers and responsible for the things they release into the world
  • Hoe gaan we dit uitleggen by Jelmer Mommers – a book about climate change in Dutch, with a somewhat different point of view for explaining it
