Who Am I?

My name is Mariann. I come from Aarhus, Denmark. I have a degree in Multimedia Design and Communication as well as first semester on Web Development. During the last two years I’ve worked in the communications team at Aarhus School of Architecture, helping out with the website and creating a new one for them. The last six months I spent at Testrup Højskole enjoying meeting new people and learning new things.

The reason why I chose to become a frontend developer happened some time ago. Back in 2012 I created my very first Tumblr blog. Not too soon after I found that you could make your own themes. It was with shaky steps I dived into this new world of coding, but I was determined to make my blog theme something I had created all by myself. And thus came my love for coding – my passion – the one area that brought me to where I am now. I love creating beautiful yet functional websites and finding new trends and new ways to make the site more alive and interactive. This is what I want to do.

As I have just finished my time at Testrup Højskole I am now looking for a job as a frontend developer. If you scroll down you can check out what my skills are and see some of my previous work. If you are already interested, click the contact button to the left.

My Education

Multimedia Design and Communication is a broad study. We learn how to work with digital communication and interactive design – so among other things we are taught how to design and create websites and physical products like posters, book covers, business cards etc. We also learn about communication strategies and business organisation. When working on projects in school we have used Scrum as a work method.

As a part of our second semester we participated in a usability course, where we learnt about consumer behaviour and various methods on how to test our product with the help of other people.

Web Development focuses more on technologies. E.g. in frontend developing we’ve dived into the world of SASS, JavaScript (including ES6), Ajax and jQuery (and of course HTML and CSS). In backend development we’ve focused on C# and Visual Studio and in databases SQL and MongoDB were the main focus.

Most of my skills you can see in the picture at the right. I have thoroughly knowledge of HTML, CSS and different CMS systems such as WordPress. I am also good at JavaScript. Furthermore, mainly from my time at Multimedia Design and Communication, I know a bit about branding and communication. I know how to create a communication plan/strategy and consider factors in how to communicate with a target audience.

In my last semester of Multimedia Design and Communication I was to complete a 3-month internship in my field and I chose to do that in Sydney, Australia. The company I stayed with is called HotelsCombined. Here I did a lot of different design-related jobs as well as coding newsletters and a page in WordPress.

The last 2 years I’ve worked at Aarhus School of Architecture in the communications team. The last year my core responsibility was to build up a new website in WordPress. Otherwise I’ve been working thoroughly with the email system MailChimp and forms in WordPress (I’ve used the systems NinjaForms and Gravity Forms).

How do I work?

When working on projects I focus on a number of things:

  • The Overall Picture – additional details can be added, when the product is working properly and the basic wishes of the customer has been met.
  • Perfectionism – kind of working is not good enough.
  • Clear Argumentation – always be clear about the argumentation of the choices that have been made.
  • Creativity – a good foundation for a good project is taking time to be in the creative flow.
  • Good Atmosphere – great teamwork makes great products.



It's been more than 5 years since I created my very first blog on Tumblr. At that time the theme was, of course, one of the free ones, but it did not take long before I started playing around with the CSS. One thing led to another and today I make my own themes. You can see some of them in the grid below. In my final product at Multimedia Design and Communication I created a website for myself, where I can share my themes. It is still in progress as some of the themes still need the last touch.


Here is some of the graphics I've done. Two of them are from my time at HotelsCombined and the others are some I did for fun and to learn about Photoshop.

School Projects

During my time in school, I have done a few projects. In most projects we had no contact with the customer. The businesses therefore have nothing to do with what my group and I have made. The concepts simply does not exist in reality.


Aarhus Parking

In one of the small projects in Web Development we had to deleveop a prototype app displaying data about parking space in Aarhus from Open Data Aarhus. We did, however, not have to be able to show specific details for the specific spots.


Cara Delevingne

In one of the small projects at Web Development, we had to create a website Mobile First. The website had to contain four pages, be responsive and use the design principles we learned in Interface Design.



In Multimedia Design my group and I made a new concept of how Bisca could sell their products. A café where people could show up, get a break from the stressed everyday life and eat a cake. We made a website that was to promote this café. It is only a concept and the café does not exist in real life.


Salon Morgenhaar

In Multimedia Design we had to get in contact with our very first customer. My group and I decided to go for a hair salon. Our customer wanted a very simple and minimalistic design to express their professional attitude. This is the result.


Playful Piano

For design class we had to make a stop-motion movie where our personal character was to be the star. This is what my movie ended up to be.


Det Endte Med Isbjerget

For another design assignment my group and I went to film the Iceberg in Aarhus. It is an apartment building that looks like an iceberg. The assignment was to catch the style of the building and the atmosphere around it. It is in Danish though and is not translated.


Business Academy Aarhus

Yet another design class assignment. We had to make a commercial for a self-chosen business/organisation. My group and I chose our own school - Business Academy Aarhus.
