Hi, my name is Jill and I'm a digital designer and pixel nerd. I started working with Photoshop when I was 11 and never lost the passion for digital grafics since. I can only be booked in double pack with my darling little Australian Shepherd girl Yuna that follows me everywhere I go. She is my childhoods dream and also the big love of the office I am working at.
“What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight;
it's the size of the fight in the dog.”
—Dwight D. Eisenhower
With 160cm I'm not the biggest dwarf but I am a great fighter when it comes to ideas and getting a job done in the best way with a great team and a decent amount of time. The most important detail in good work for me is having a great setup of people you are working with. Teamwork and communication skills are pretty much in focus in my actual working enviroment and there is no way I would go back into a dog-eat-dog enviroment.
Starting at Jimdo 2010 with a huge range of print and online marketing work I moved my focus in 2014 to frontend, website and template design. Together with my teampartner we got the chance to build up a template building team that creates new designs for Jimdo Websites. With a high concentration on cleaner code and innovative ideas we are driving this ship in a good future and wish for our Jimdo Customers to be able to get the site they wish for even without coding knowledge.
In 2016 my husband and I decidet to move to southern Germany. I wouldn't stop working on Jimdo pages though and decidet to work independent and build e-commerce solutions, Jimdo client websites and project management for those.
Bringing the experience of retroperspectives, structured daylies and working with tools like Kanban and Kaizen I can be pretty helpful in team organization planning. We also use Peergroup Feedbacks here at Jimdo wich enable us to develop not only jobwise but also personally.
EAT YOUR OWN DOG FOOD
You might ask yourself why (as a web designer) I use a content management system for my site. Well as I am a template designer for Jimdo I would find it very sad not to be able to use our own system to create something nicely looking and working.

Besides taking my exercise lead by my dog (find her site here) I love my chilly home. Having over 70 plants in our 69m" appartment I drive my husband crazy sometimes. But there is loves we share like good cooking, tv series and gaming (PS4 or MMORPGs). As a multitasking junkee I fill my evenings with diy projects while watching a series and playing on the computer all in the same time...
As you can see on my site I love photography a lot. I am using it to get my head free and relive the beautiful moments :)
You might have realized that I am kind of talkative. If you still have question please ask and send me an email.
