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.


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.
