Lithuania - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 9

My major interest is Drupal development and only Drupal development. I'm concentrated on the exact CMS as I believe that one can be a real professional in only one applied area. That's the reason why I deal with Drupal, HTML, CSS, jQuery, PHP, MySQL, and Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign for more than 7 years in a row and do my best to meet the client's requirements. I have an eye on design as well coding skills coupled with broad knowledge of best modern UX practices, it makes a perfect combination for PSD to Drupal service taken to the next level in comparison to most other similar services out there. I do use Drupal at its best and utilize the power of template engines, Drupal hooks, and popular contributed modules to deliver the templates which are easy to use and maintain. All templates of mine come as Drupal field based solutions where you don't need to know even a bit of HTML to manage your content and its look and feel. It makes back-end management UI extremely user friendly and front-end output as bullet proof and predictable as provided PSD, only in HTML/CSS/JS flesh and Drupal blood. Also all templates are QA tested for cross browser compatibility (down to IE9), as well as retina and responsive readiness. Check out www.idealabs.eu for more details.
