Hello, I am Vadim Brodsky, a passionate Full–Stack Web Developer & Designer based in Kitchener-Waterloo. Currently a Partner / Digital Strategist at Crankworks Creative.
I take pride in creating digital experiences that solve problems and delight users. I am an avid tech enthusiast and geek, I love learning, tinkering and traveling.
I have over 8 years of professional Graphic Design experience, designing in both print and digital mediums. I worked on branding projects, magazines, websites, user interfaces, apps, ads, and almost all collateral and marketing materials.
The contant truth in any kind of design are design principles, no matter if designing for the screen or the printed page, design is design and it has to work.
My tools of the trade are the Adobe CS Suite, Sketch App, OmniGraffle and my handy notebook.
In the past 4 years I have completely immersed myself in the world of web development. Becoming proficient in all aspects of the web development process: strategy, wire-framing, conceptual design, development, deployment, testing, SEO and performance optimization. With special attention to the small details that delight users.
I have deep knowledge of modern front-end web technologies. As well as server-side development in different CMS platforms, web application frameworks and third-party API integrations. Enabling me to create engaging end-to-end digital experiences.
