My design experience goes back to 1992. Since the early 2000's, I have been focused on web design. The greater part of my work is in large, long-term projects and special projects. I don't list smaller individual web design projects in my portfolio.

To make my professional profile easier accesible, I moved it to the social web LinkedIn.
It's my very old nickname. It originated in the early 90's. It had something to do with "pixels", as far as I remember. In those days I didn't speak English at all, so it wasn't related to pixies. The Pixy comics also have nothing to do with my nickname (in fact I had been using my nickname even before the first edition of the comics).
To contact me, please prefer email. Thank you.
