Hi there! My name Adrien. I design custom WordPress CMS sites out of Nagoya, Japan.
Why web design?
I taught English here for about 7 years, but I was dying to do design instead — after all, that’s what I studied in college; and it’s how I met my wife and now business partner, Yuko.
When I discovered web design I knew I’d found something I could happily do for a living. Web design, coding, web programming — whatever you want to call it, feels so right to me for 2 reasons.
- You can literally never stop learning. Even if you learn everything you could possibly know about the present state of web design — in 2 years, you’ll have to tear some of that knowledge down and try something new. The web changes SO frequently.
- I’m obsessed with “the how”. I’ll never forget the first time I remember feeling proud of myself.
I was about 6 years old. I found a simple paper airplane my classmate had made sitting on the table. I took a few moments observing it — just looking — and then I grabbed a piece of paper.
In just one try, I successfully engineered the same paper airplane that was sitting on the desk before me.
Web design gives me the opportunity to do that every day.
