My name is Willem Louw. I am 29 years old. I am from Cape Town, South Africa. I have lived in and around Cape Town for most of my life.
I have always been an artistic person and during my school years I prefered to spend my time pursuing music and art. I first discovered my passion for design while working at a small printing company and very soon thereafter I started my studies in design.
Soon, I realised my true passion was Web Design, more specifically hand coded HTML and CSS.

What I do
I have a passion for hand coded HTML and CCS, I like to design responsive websites using CCS instead of images wherever possible.
CSS not only loads much quicker but I also feel that it gives a design element a much cleaner look than a jpeg created in Photoshop. That said, I am equally capable of designing elements in Photoshop or Illustrator for both web and printed media.
I have also had some experience with sound and video. If you would like more information please read below or send me a message using the contact page.
Some of my skills include:
HTML 5, CSS 3 and Jquery
Adobe Photoshop CS5
Adobe Illustrator CS5
Adobe After Effects CS5
Adobe Dreamweaver CS5
