My name is Kristel and I’m a passionate front-end developer who has a love for good design and photography. I love trying out new things and getting a better understanding of what I already know.

I started designing when I was 15 years old and began with photo retouching and making posters. In 2009 I started freelancing under the name CRD, which is short for Creative Release Designs. I did a lot of design work and websites and I was also teaching Photoshop at Hogeschool Inholland. Shortly after that I was not only teaching in Photoshop, but InDesign, Web Design and Web Development.

For the last couple of years I have worked as a front-end developer with companies like Hostnet and Floyd & Hamilton, where I have worked with really amazing creative teams.

In my time off, I love photography and that is why I recently started a test where I have to bring my DSLR with me every day to improve my skills. I’m a big fan of nature and have a lot of plants in my home where I live with my boyfriend Jurgen, who is also a developer.

I really hope you enjoy my blog and get inspired by it. Thank you for reading.
