Hi, I'm Franky
I’m a designer, programmer, illustrator, and writer. I spend my time experimenting with technology, in critical thought, and solving puzzles.
In 2005, I began my journey into web development building personal portfolio galleries for myself. Since then, I’ve had contract work for front–end web design, back–end web development, competed in a few Hackathons, and explored programming outside of the browser…mostly iOS.
Please, feel free to throw me an email at email@example.com . If you just want to have a quick dialog, you can always reach me on Twitter — @frankymartz
Yes, I’m interested in new projects and opportunities.
This website was born on notebook paper and coffee napkins. The design was refined in the Sketch 3 — where colors and proportions were identified. Finally, its DNA was sequenced in MacVim.
I’m a firm believer in pushing technology forward. Modern browsers are action packed with cool features that just break down in older browser releases. So, from the beginning this site was built on top of the latest web technologies; only limiting myself to adhere to Google’s two version support.3
Typography & the Right Side of the Brain
The fonts were snatched from Google Fonts. Wordy stuff uses Noticia, a contemporary humanist slab serif. While navigation and headers stick with the classically proportioned sans–serif, Lato. Finally, the GitHub feed rocks the Octicon font.
My full–stack definition is described as a LAMP, or LEMP server configuration; with PHP as the “P” in both instances. ↩
I’ll occasionally use Python for server administration stuff — like Cron jobs or build tools. Sometimes BASH can get messy. ↩
