Marcel Rauca

My name is Marcel Rauca.
I am a web designer located in Brasov, Romania.

I mainly design for web, but occasionally (since I have a pretty solid background in DTP) I do print work as well.

I also love photography and music, you'll find on this website some of my shots and plenty of references to the music I enjoy listening.

Should you need to get in touch with me, feel free to use the e-mail provided below. I'll do my best to get back to you asap.

Layout design and implementation

I create my website layouts using Adobe Photoshop. I write compliant XHTML and CSS code (HTML5 and CSS3 as well) and the websites I build are driven by jQuery and PHP scripting with MySQL database management.

I am able to create and implement responsive layout designs in order to dynamically match and adapt the content display to various screen sizes (both big screens and smartphone/tablet small screens).

I use my in-house developed PHP CMS which gives me the ability to provide along with the final product a complete content management experience.

Layout design for digital and press print

I am able to provide ready to print layout designs for digital print, press print and all common used media.

The final output always consists in scalable vector graphics or high resolution raster graphics which are easy to modify/integrate into more complex designs depending on client's future needs.

Work is either based on specifications provided by the client, either based on my own concepts and ideas.

Photography

Having good time

I love taking pictures, especially the portrait/headshot ones. It's a thing I do exclusively for fun, I totally enjoy the laughs, the goofy poses and all the funny things that happen during a shoot. It makes people smile and feel good about themselves.

I don't have or use fancy equipment and I do my best to make the most of what I have (that is a Canon EOS 7D Mark I, a bunch of non-expensive lenses and some basic strobes and light modifiers).

I only wish I could have more time to spend taking photos, sadly nowadays I have to bounce between my day job as a web designer and the projects I work on as a freelancer.
