My name is Paul Göran Eidens and I do web design.
As a kid of the 90s, I grew up with computers and the internet.
I would spend a lot of time at the computer, creating "works of art" in MSPaint. Shortly after came the computer games: The Sims, Empire Earth and many more. Don't forget Pokémon either! In fact, it was Pokémon, more specifically a Pokémon forum, that sparked my interest in coding and design.
This forum had a chat. And the developer of the chat software sometimes spend time in it. This chat software was available for free. So I tried to set up my own chat! ... Without success. That was still too much for me.
But I didn't give up.
That's how I learned about scripts. A collective term for code that serves a specific purpose.
For example, a "login script" allows you to log on to a website in a "protected" area that is otherwise inaccessible. I wrote many such scripts to understand the basic logic behind them.
During my "internet youth" I spent a lot of time in many IT and design forums...
... where I learned what kind of interesting projects other creative developers are working on! I was so engrossed that I often sat in computer classes and tinkered with my designs. As soon as I got home, I continued.
And now I'm still at it. More motivated than ever.
I keep finding new topics that I grapple with deeply. At the moment these are accessibility and progressive enhancement.
Web design and technology are my passion. I would like to convey this feeling to you with my websites.
What else do I do?
In my free time I like to go out into nature and take photos. You can view some of my photos on the website unsplash.com. One of my most seen pictures is this one of a water lily. Follow me there if you are also a fan of photography!
