About

I like to make things.

When I was little I used Lego bricks to build houses, now I use pixels and code to design straightforward and effective marketing materials.

Hello, I am Joke.

I am a web designer and I first learned to code in the same year as the invention of the web. After a twelve year break in programming - eight of which were spent being a local press photographer - I set up a web design business in 2006, building small websites for friends to gain experience.

I design and code all websites from scratch, specialising in web standards compliant code. My clients are a range of individuals, small businesses and organisations.

Since 2016 I have also found a taste for teaching code and passing on my knowledge of web design. In 2018 I did an intensive graphic design course at Shillington, New York, to up-skill and offer graphic design services as well.

About the name Joke

/yo-ka/

The name Joke is a Dutch first name (for girls) and it comes from Hebrew meaning God is good. It’s pronounced Yoka.

However, I am not Dutch. I am Flemish (from Belgium). And in case you were wondering, yes, the combination of my first name and last name does cause for confusion on the web sometimes: Jokes about Winter.
