Hi, nice to meet you. I’m Grete. My middle name is Merlyn 🧙♂.
I’m a bit introverted, in fact I’d rather listen and observe than talk. I never have a permanent hobby because I like to experiment and surround myself with different activities to express my creative personality, so sometimes I feel a strong impulse to do something different and test my limits.
I usually start with a simple “I create websites”, but it’s actually a bit more fun:
Did you know that e-commerce saves a lot of effort for visually impaired people? And that it is difficult to find one that is perfectly usable with the screen reader?
In order to do all this it is very important to know how to put yourself in the customer’s shoes as well as the user’s and, finally, to know how to communicate and emotion the end user through a rather intricate channel such as Internet.
The less technical and more curious side of my work, instead, is the chance to meet many people from different sectors and thus discover something new. I have been lucky enough to be able to work on websites about catering, communication, municipalities, associations, steel industry, lighting, furnishings, construction, real estate, personal care, health, clothing, legal assistance and much more.
