Liane Balek Web Designer Developer

Howdy! I'm Liane. I'm a Web Designer working at Country-Tyme Web Hosting in Stouffville, ON. I create websites that are clean, bold and inspiring, sifting through muddled messages to bring clear, simple concepts to life.

As a web designer and developer, each project I work on has a unique set of goals and requirements. But the one goal I have for all of these projects is that I want them to make an impression on people - I want the websites that I create to be memorable. The same spirit and attentiveness is applied to all projects, big and small.

I was born in Toronto and later moved into a small hamlet in the country. I'm the wife of an amazing man and the mother of 2 hellions zany young men. When I'm not toying with pixels or mucking around with code, I spend my time watching the wildlife around me and researching ways to become more "green". I'm also chief cook and bottle washer... When I have time.

Now that you know a little more about me, stick around, take a look at my portfolio and don't forget to check out the Web related articles and goodies that I have collected.

Vielen Dank und Tschau!

I'm All About:

Great Design

Your website will feature the latest trends in web design, but it will still be a team effort to achieve an engaging, unique, and well coded design.

Tools: Photoshop, Illustrator

Clean Code

Functional Front-End Development, Clean & Organized Code, Microformats

Using web standards basically means your website will look great and work on all web browsers, even Internet Explorer. You won't have to ask for backward and forward compatibility for your website, you should expect it.

Markups: HTML5, XHTML, CSS3, jQuery

Web Standards

W3C Guidelines, Validation, Browser Compatibility, SEO Optimization

Keeping it Green

I recognize the need to operate with sensitivity to the Earth. Going green is good for business.

How I'm Doing My Part
  • I drive a diesel car that runs on used veggie oil from spring to fall.
  • I use a laptop, more enery efficient, to conserve energy.
  • I use every square inch of paper, back and front.
  • I work for a "green" hosting company. All their servers are 100% wind powered with 99.9% uptime.
  • My next step is a solar heated home-office
