About Me

Beginner-father, UI-design-&-code-guy,
and heavyweight email-tennis champion of the world.


Hi there, thanks for stopping by, I am Pieter-Brink, Beginner-father, UI-design-&-code-guy, and heavyweight email-tennis champion of the world.

I’m a qualified art director, certified designer and highly creative front-end developer. I pride myself on my marketing insight, project and business management skills as forged by founding Idea Catalyst, a profitable print and design micro agency in 2006.

With an advanced knowledge of both print and UI/UX design, I’m looking to develop my career in a mid to senior level role – focusing on high profile projects, and augmenting my team-based, font-end development knowledge. Complementing a history of extensive WordPress development experience.

On the personal front – I am a starter father and beginner husband, trying to be better at both, each day. My interests and hobbies are rather technology-centric and include mobile-focused, front-end application development & tooling with the ambition of interfacing said apps with hardware sensors via (rather crude) Arduino based prototypes.

Let’s Collaborate

I am looking to collaborate with you on your world changing Ideas and projects, let me know when we can start sketching out the details, by filling in my contact from on my collaborate page.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
