I am Osvaldas Valutis, I’ve been making websites since 2003, and live in KlaipÄ—da, Lithuania.

“Web designer who thinks in code” perfectly describes what I do: I solve design problems and implement their technical solutions. My specialization covers the visual design and front-end development: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

I build small and medium-sized websites and web apps solely from the inception of the project till the last touch. For example, Easy Shine and Preidenta are small websites and Readerrr is a medium-sized web app I've built.

I take my usual designer’s and front-end developer’s role in a team when working on a complex large-scale projects. Versliukai.lt is a community-based website where I was responsible specifically for how the design looks, feels, and works.

I have been making websites independently for 11 years.

Principles

Web should be easy to use. The websites I design are simple, obvious, distinctive, and functional. This helps to engage the audience.

Web is for everyone. The websites and web apps I develop are responsive, responsible, and adaptive. They are optimized for all of the screen sizes and resolutions available out there as well as optimized for touch-capable devices and slow Internet connections. This helps to reach the widest possible audience.

The combination of both is a long-lived investment that helps to achieve business goals.

Status

Currently, besides the freelance projects, I am also maintaining my web app Readerrr. I usually share my knowledge and discoveries here on the blog.
