Kenn Hartwig Web Development

Hi there, I'm Kenn.

I am an international working full-stack web developer, based in Berlin. I wrote my first website in 1998 at the age of 11 (using notepad.exe). Since 2008 I do commercial work as a web designer and developer.

I do solo gigs but love to work with talented teams. My clients include architects, artists, researchers, filmmakers, designers, musicians and music labels as well as a power plant and a brewery.

Fields of work

I build websites and web apps with Contao CMS. I know my way around Wordpress and also like to deploy static websites. I am pretty good at CSS – I tend to write stuff from hand and make every website look unique instead of relying on templates and frameworks. I can take care of your design / UX / UI, but prefer to work in team with designers.

Having a deep understanding of how the net works, I offer consulting to tackle potential issues before jumping into actual coding.

Stuff I work with: Responsive Webdesign / Javascript (Vanilla) / Node.js / Sass / PostCSS / PHP / Composer / MySQL / MariaDB / Apache / Nginx / on-site SEO / Webshops / Isotope E-Commerce / Shopify / VS Code / Vim / Figma / Photoshop / Illustrator / Indesign. I recently switched from Windows to Linux for development and everything that is not Adobe.


Other

I am an active musician playing music somewhere between Experimental Jazz and Krautrock. I play bass (studied double bass at HfMT Cologne) and electronics, mostly Nintendo Gameboys which I modded to use them as instruments. Check out my bands C.A.R. and Das Ende Der Liebe.
