ABOUT

My name is Linda Holmkratz (former Kratz). I am an experienced web designer with over 10 years in the industry. My greatest strengths are flexibility and curiousity, and I am always eager to learn something new.

I love projects that are challenging - I find work much more rewarding when I have a problem to conquer. Encountering problems is the fastest way of learning! This is how I've learned things like asp and php - by needing it for a project, and learning how to. I believe that as long as you have an understanding for how programming in general works, learning a new language isn't that hard. And that applies to everything - the more you learn, the easier it is to learn more.

Anyway. I could write about my passion for learning all day, but I should try to cover some more ground.

Right now

Right now I work for an e-learning company designing web pages and printed matter, producing interactive content and writing and editing courses. As a part of this I have also written a book about Photoshop Elements.

A list of knowledge

Using: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Captivate, Adobe ImageReady, MySQL and Notepad++.

Coding and programming: HTML, HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, JQuery, PHP, ASP and SQL.

Photography: Have had band photos published in the magazine Close-Up. More photos.

On a personal note

My fascination about creating doesn't end at visuals. I have been the lead singer and guitarist in various bands since 1997, one of which released a single which made it to the single billboard top 50. I have played some of the big Swedish venues such as Debaser Slussen, Kägelbanan, Klubben and Mosebacke, participated in a charity event for BRIS in Trollhättan and toured France.
