About Me
This is me in a nutshell

Hi. My name is Karl. I’m a digital marketing manager currently living in Singapore. I love designing and helping clients define their requirements, concepts, and ideas into web solutions that effectively address their needs.

My key strengths are in Business Analysis and Visual Design. Basically, if you think you have a difficult problem in hand, I can help you define the “big picture” and help you in producing the solution.

Designing the solution involves deciding on the technical requirements. This stage is where sketching wireframes, prototyping, mock-ups, and initial designs are done.

DELIVER

Delivery involves deployment of the solution, testing, training users, and most importantly measurement of the goals initially set.


In addition to my development skills, I am also excellent in giving presentations, capable of articulating design recommendations effectively to different audiences, and have a strong background in leading and influencing decisions and discussions.
