My name is Sami, but I also go around by the nick Alajarvela. I drink a lot of coffee, listen to vinyl records and I think that
I live and breathe HTML&CSS, been writing it since I was 14 years old (that's eight years ago!). I also like to think that I know something about usability and user experience, WAI-ARIA, Wireframing, App Design languages, like XAML and all.
Currently, I'm a second year Media Engineering student from Jyväskylä, Finland. I would love to work alongside school, feel free to contact me if you have some fun projects!
I took part in an innovation competition called Innovate or Die. I knocked out a responsive version of the Magento shop that the client currently uses. We didn't win the competition, but the client was very pleased with the work. I also created a social media type profile page. All responsive!
This was a fun one. I created a mobile-first, responsive web page for Jyväskylä's Engineering Students' association. Their previous site was a infested Wordpress install from 2008, so I got to deal with getting rid of the top 10 most common Wordpress malwares, writing a fun theme from scratch and picking a nice layout and color scheme.
Spin the Disc is a popular music blog. For them, I have done three different custom Wordpress themes, graphic design, banners, flash ads, T-shirt prints and a lot of server side optimization.
