About

Introduction

Hi there, my name is Sander van de Vondervoort, a webdesigner / developer from the Netherlands.

Ever since my dad launched our family website back in 2000 I was interested in making my own pages. I started making all sorts of puzzles and sliced them up to make them interactive in MS FrontPage. After my dad found out I was into websites he thought it would be a good idea for me to sign up on a course for creating and coding simple websites. This is where I learned to code using Coffeecup HTML Editor.

When I got to the 3rd grade in high school I got in contact with a friend who introduced me to Macromedia's Dreamweaver. During this period I also started playing around with Mark Overmars' Gamemaker and created a lot of games. These games required a webpage so people could find and download the games. That's when I designed and created my first website. Around this period I started playing online games and joined gaming teams. I even started my own teams just so I could create websites for them.

After high school I went to Sint Lucas, a post-secondary college, where I took the Interactive Design study for 4 years. During these 4 years I did some freelance work which included websites, corporate identities and print. This is also when I figured I would later want to start my own business in webdesign and development but I still had a long way to go because I really didn't have any experience with Content Management Systems which would make me and the clients life a lot more easier in managing the website.

When I finished post-secondary college I immediately got the opportunity to start working at idreams (Oss), a web design agency that has its own CMS. This is where a colleague really taught me to design great websites using Adobe Illustrator. I still use illustrator to date to design my websites, which some people think is a bit weird. After a year I moved to Zwolle with my girlfriend and found a job at IDinteractive, a web design agency that also has its own CMS build from on the open source CMS Contao. This is where I learned HTML, CSS and jQuery.

The website / brand I'm working on now, Well-Made, is also build on Contao. It is the playground for my creativity and I hope it can and will inspire everyone who visits. Check out the work I have done in the past, and surely check back for new work to come!
