I am Giovanni Martelli. A 19 year old student who studies at Mediacollege Amsterdam. I am the CEO of GM Development, my little start up business. I want to make GM Development a company that is known to others as simple and clean, but innofative. My way of working and designing is therefore simple and clean. I love minimalist designs and that is what you can often expect from me.
I always want my work to be unique, even if it is the small things.
I have a huge passion for music. It keeps me motivated and focused on my goals.
I see challenges as a way to improve myself and to prove what I can do.
I see photography as a way to express your creativity.
In the time as a developer I have achieved several things. These are my biggest success moments:
1: In my first year as a developer I have achieved all 15 points that can be gained within my education. You get these points with high marks.
2: In the first year of my study I made the greatest development and progress of all first-year students. This is mainly due to my perseverance and motivation.
3: Several times I have made one of the best projects. This portfolio is also one of the best and strongest teachers have seen.
4: Together with my team I have defeated 11 teams twice in succession. This allows us to work for a client and we were allowed to stand as a team at an information fair and promote our own company Just Start.
The reason I want to become a full stack developer is because I can be creative with this profession. You can let your imagination go wild on your websites, designs and on your back-end. You can build just about anything you want and in your own way. I've always been interested in websites, apps and software. I just enjoy the freedom and possibilities.
MY Work Flow
I start with some ideas for what seems nice or beautiful. Then I write down the things that I want in my work.
I make the design for a project or assignment based on the things I want in it. I then determine the use of color, the style I want to use and the placement of information. This is then processed in a so-called mock-up.
Now comes the best part, the construction of the project or assignment. This is the moment you go from ideas to reality. I make the website according to the mock-up and usually incorporate some animations, apis or widgets in it.
Now that the website is almost finished, it is time to test it for weaknesses. I give a test link to a few people and ask if they want to test the site and possibly try to break it. After testing, the site will be prepared and will be online for everyone.
