Web Developer Jens Nüesch

Hi there. I’m a freelance web developer and lecturer with a passion for front-end interaction and animation. My main focus is creating browser-based web-applications and casual games, usually involving some kind of user-generated media – e.g. drawing applications, configuration assistants and social media games.

Before I got deeply into programming, I devoted my attention to image manipulation, vector graphics and (real-time) animation. So if you need some graphics or banner work done, or you are interested in a Photoshop workflow enhancement, I can probably help you out, too.

For the sake of brevity, here are a few of my top fives:
