Diwa Fernandez-Velez

Hello! — I'm a web designer and front-end developer by day and a gamer by night. I got married last 2013 and moved my base to Mandaue City, Philippines. Over the past decade, I've been juggling both design and front-end development since the beginning of my career (2001). I've worked in various companies and my longest was in local gaming companies — Level Up! Games & IP e-Games.

Now, you know why I'm a gamer.

Skills

I also picked up a good knowledge of HTML5, CSS3, LESS, bootstrap, and custom WordPress theme with PHP.

Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of digital illustration and sometimes tattoo designs. I use Manga Studios and Photoshop at my application tool.

Diwa Fernandez is one of the most talented and dedicated web designers, web programmer and artists that I’ve worked with. A self-beginner, very creative, almost always takes the initiative and always finishes a project. She has provided the company some of the best web site designs. She considers the requirements of other departments, thus providing better functionality and features. You won’t find a better web designer/programmer and artist.

Diwa Fernandez is one of the few geekette hybrid web designer/programmer out there.

I’ve worked with her on the User Interface development of Philweavers.Net’s 2nd Version (Grey-themed) way back 2002 and since then I’ve trusted and loved the way she works.

Will work with Diwa Fernandez anytime.
