About Me

Hello, my name is Ben and I am a web designer and developer. Originally from Jakarta, Indonesia but currently Bangkok, Thailand is home. I started my career as a graphic designer and fell in love with coding along the way. Since then I just can’t stop exploring and constantly learning the www and apps development, especially the front-end aspect of it.

What I Do

I Solve Problems

The design and development process is actually a problem-solving. A simple ‘I need a website now’ doesn’t really mean that a problem is defined. A need of a website, a brand identity, a marketing brochure, and etc. must have come out of existing problem(s). Why would you need a website / have yours redesigned? What are you trying to achieve by having one? And so on. To my experience, some clients wouldn’t even sure the whys of these. But don’t worry, because that is actually when I start to be of service – identifying the problems.

  • #1 - Preparation

    To understand and to define

    This is the first step of the problem solving. Now don’t worry, it won’t be pages of questionaires written in Urkelish and all that. Let’s get real and see what needs to be done. I mean, why would one need a super corporate website while you will be selling cupcakes online? It’s very important to create something that is tailored especially for a client’s requirements, and as your designer I’d like you to be comfortable with your own website and actually be able to do real stuff with it.

  • #2 - Planning

    Organizing, putting things together

    After the problems are identified, now let’s come up with a plan. We will look through the list of problems and see how you would like to have each to be resolved. Ok now why I said ‘we’, instead of ‘I’ who will look through all this? Isn’t that my part? Well yes, but because this is the stage that will end up with an agreement from both sides on what are the scope to be done and how. I’ll come up with suggestions of possible solutions.

  • #3 - Performing

    Let's get Busy

    Once I got the approval to start the project, then it’s time to make things happen. I will do my best at this point. I may not be able to guarantee you the most cutting-edge websites or apps and that I am a super coding master Jedi (I know, rite. I don’t get what is it with geeks & starwars either) but I can guarantee that I will do my best to make whatever it is required as efficient, functional, and of course, make you smile when you look at it. It may not be the most sophisticated, but for sure it would be something you need, and works for you. Coffee, anyone?

  • #4 - Perfecting

    Evaluate, evaluate, evaluate

    This is the phase that is usually misunderstood. ‘To Perfect’ doesn’t mean to perfect things prior to the delivery of a final and usable website or apps. ‘To Perfect’ means evaluating the implementations of proposed solutions. Is it really working as expected? Can it really solve the problems? Or actually it shows other problems that we didn’t see before? Is it really the best way of doing it?

So does it end here?
