I'm Anton Boshoff, a passionate UI Designer & Front-End Developer based in Cape Town.

I have several years experience & currently working at BrandsEye.

About

I have over 10 years experience building and maintaining responsive websites in the digital marketing industry. Proficient in HTML, CSS, Javascript; plus modern libraries and some frameworks. Extensive web design background with a passion for usability and user experience.

From a very young age I had a keen interest in drawing and creating all sorts of things. Microsoft Paint was probably the first "design" tool I used until I discovered better software products.

This passion in drawing and creating eventually lead me into taking art in my senior year of school and before I knew it I was studying for a National Diploma in Multimedia Design at Tshwane University of Technology.

Today, my daily job consists of mocking up HTML prototypes, designing user interfaces and writing hundreds of lines of code to make sure websites are user-friendly across all browsers and platforms.

When I am not at work you will probably find me building my next javascript plugin at home late into the night.
