I am David Pádua

Front-end & Creative Developer

Experience & Skills

I started many years ago with architecture and Computer Aided Design (CAD). Then I saw an oportunity to change my career path and went for the web technologies. It was love at first sight. In the beginning I started by using Flash, actionscript and OOP (Object Oriented Programming). Then, with the anounced death of Flash, I evolved to HTML5, CSS and Javascript and learned all that I could about these languages.

I always try to be up to speed with new technologies and learn new programming languages and I am a firm believer that practice makes perfection. The need of being in the same pace as the tech world is one of the reasons I am adicted to this work.

I love Monday mornings.

I'm always eagger to find something on the internet that expands and improves the way I do my work. Sometimes you find material that meet your demand and, at the same time, inspire you to be more creative or just help you get things done in a more practical way.

Here are a few projects that I developed with the help of the super talented and creative guys at Tympanus/Codrops community.

The Photograhy Portfolio

A photography-inspired website layout with an expanding stack slider and a background image tilt effect.

The Writing Diary

This is my second passion. I use it as a way to improve my creative skills and try to make better visual choices when creating web content. I'm always trying to see things in a different perspective.
