Hi! I'm Dieter Peirs, an interface designer and front-end developer.
For the past 18 years, I've worked as a designer on identity, print and web projects. Currently, I focus on websites and applications as an interface designer and front-end developer.
I believe the future of the web is sustainable, simple to use and accessible to all. To achieve this, I balance aesthetics, experience and efficient code. I collaborate with authentic brands, businesses and start-ups to solve design problems which benefit their business and the end-user.
On the side, I'm conquering my fear of heights by climbing up and down walls. I enjoy noodling on my guitar and making silly noises with my synthesiser.

By keeping a positive mindset in discussions and critiques, we can achieve better results together.
Technology and the web should be accessible to all. I design and advocate for WCAG 2.0 standards and challenge my code to follow the current A11Y best practices.
I want to help build an ethical and open web with respect for human rights, human effort and human experience.
