Hello, my name is Elaine Chua, also known as “rayvolvez”.

I innovate workarounds for all of life’s bad jokes and I craft delightful sights that you:

In short,

I design for lives, not for a living.

Professional Experience

I have been “revolutionising” print & web design since 2005. 6 years and going.

I am (definitely more than) competent with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Dreamweaver (though I mostly hand code my websites nowadays), HTML, CSS, WordPress and etc. I ensure that all my websites are validated according to HTML5 and CSS3 specifications.

I live & breathe design, and breathe life into designs. I am strong in user experience, specifically in layout, typography, colours and interactivity, creative conceptualisation, design direction. I design for all media, ranging from print to web. I am competent with project management and client communication.

Apart from design, I’m an Educator. On top of teaching, I work with and build on Educational Technologies such as Google Apps for Education, WordPress Multisite, Moodle, Mahara and customisations of CMS for Educational purposes.

Personal

I am 24 this year. I am, thankfully, no longer one of the rare females in this design/web industry. I would describe myself as “dedicated, passionate and professional”. Some would describe me as “workaholic”. I guess, both works.

If I am not working, I would be reading, writing/blogging and thinking (or daydreaming).

No I do not drink and I am anti-smoking.
