My name is Alex Devero.
I am designer, developer & entrepreneur.

I am self-taught designer, developer and entrepreneur from Czech Republic. Technology, design and business are my lifelong passions/obsessions. My lifetime goal is to use technology to change the World. I have been designing and developing websites, building interactive experiences and building businesses since I was 11. I am proficient in design, web development and UI/UX design. Beside work on projects, I write extensively on my blog.


Values

I'm devoted to modern and clean designs. I am an advocate of structure, purity and simplicity in both, design and code. Beautiful is better than ugly. Simple is better than complex. Complex is better than complicated. I believe that every line of code and element in design has to have purpose or function. Organization and consistency are very important to me.


Skills

In the terms of technology, I am proficient HTML5, CSS3, SASS, PostCSS, JavaScript (ES6/ES7) and version system Git. I am well versed in Bootstrap and Foundation frameworks, NodeJS platform and OOP. When I want to use some JavaScript library, it is ReactJS and jQuery. I like to use build tool Gulp and bundler Webpack.

Frequently asked questions.

How much will it cost?

Initial consultation is free. Price for a small website (1-6 pages) is in range of $250–550 (€225–490). Price for a website with more than 6 pages starts at $550 (€490). I'll calculate the final price based on our initial consultation. Please, keep in mind that the complexity of design and technology used can increase (or decrease) the final price. My hour rate is $50 (€45) per hour.


How much time will it take?

Designing and building small website (1-6 pages) usually takes 9 days. In case of more complex projects, it will usually take 2 weeks or more. The smaller the number of pages, the quicker the work is done and vice versa.


What will be your output?

Outputs are determined by the scope of my work. If my job is design and development, my outputs are PSD files and HTML, CSS a JavaScript (complete website), and any other source files. If my job is only design, my outputs are PSD files for your coder.


How will our cooperation look like?

The first step is initial consultation or video call that will help us clarify your expectations and the way I can help you. My design process goes through these steps: user research, creating wireframes, moodboard, sketching the visual style, finalization of the visual style, designing the homepage, designing sub-pages, interaction design, optimization for retina screens, coding and final optimization of the code. During this process you will be regularly informed about the status of the work. You can also always request demos to review the current status.

Yes, you can find me on Twitter, GitHub, CodePen, LinkedIn, Facebooku, Dribbble, Behance and Telegram.
