I'm Brittney Postma, the developer and designer behind bDesigned. I have a background in graphic design and more recently found my passion for coding. I taught myself through the ZTM Academy while being a stay at home mom to my 3 wonderful kids. I am a star mentor in the ZTM Discord community and recently joined the other great instructors at the Academy. I did a live workshop on Responsive Web Design that is available to all Academy students now!
I love developing beautiful, fluid, and responsive websites using new technologies. I thrive on accessible, semantic HTML that also has personality. I want everyone to be included on my websites, but also have some fun! I use Figma to create design systems, mockups, and clickable prototypes. User experience is extremely important to me and I strive to have a low user misery rating. I also use Photoshop like tools to create logos and high quality SVG icons and designs.
I am passionate about UI/UX (User Interface and User Experience) development and SEO. I have extensive experience with frontend frameworks React/Gatsby and Svelte/Sapper on the Jamstack. I have experience working with a wide range of technologies including Vue, React Native, Python, GraphQL, and SQL and NoSQL databases.
I created my own VSCode theme, Deep Water, based on the colors of the ocean, and wrote about the process over at dev.to. I stream and record videos on Youtube and really enjoy teaching others all the awesome things I have learned. I started a digital garden, The Console Logs , as a place to keep all of my development notes. If you would like to get in touch, you can reach me at the socials below or send me a message !
