WHAT I DO

THE JUICY PIXEL

is an alter ego for Martyna Lebryk. I’m an architect who challenged by the economic crises had to go back to school and reinvent herself. This traumatic experience turned out to be a blessing in disguise as I discovered that as well as my love for buildings I had a massive passion for everything graphic. I still love to build, but this time I do it in virtual world. If you like what I do, please drop me a line and we will chat about creating something unique for you, whether it is new web design, illustration or, an animated promo video for your business.

WEB DESIGN

Web Design has moved on from static pictures on a basic HTML page. Your web page is your shop window, it’s where the world can see you and it’s the first stop in building trust and a relationship with your clients. A good website will reflect your company and attract the customers that you need. The best person who knows what you need for your site is you.
I believe in working with the customer throughout the design and build process, giving you the skills to keep your site up to date and relevant. I then design the layouts for the website and build them using the content management system, WordPress. All the websites come with an option to be responsive – meaning the layout will adapt to whatever device it is being viewed on: tablet, smartphone or laptop.

Step 1. Lets work together to design the site best suited for you.
The first part of that involves us sitting down together where I will work with you to understand what your business needs are and how to best express them through your website. This is a chance to work closely together to ensure that the website we develop is the right one for you.

Step 2. Let’s build the site with full visibility and consultation:
The whole process starts with me producing a mock-up of the website after our meeting. It is followed by the build process where I get into the back end of things. I take apart the template provided by WordPress and make it look and behave the way you want, to suit your needs and to follow the design you have already approved. I will consult with you throughout the entire design and build stages, to ensure you are well informed at all times.

The website is now complete, however that’s not where our partnership ends. A successful website is dynamic and changes with your business. The best placed person to keep the website up to date is you.

Step 3. Let’s give you the skills to keep your website dynamic and reflecting you:
I will explain and show you how to use your new website to upload pictures, change text etc. Keeping your content fresh and constantly updated will help you perform better within search engines such as Google.

SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION

Now having the best shop window is no good if your shop is hidden down an alley that no one can find. It’s the same with websites; people need to be able to find your site. To do this you need to optimize your site for search engines. This is called search engine optimization (SEO).

Step 4. Let’s help people find your site:
If you want I can also help you with your SEO. I am by no means an expert but I know few quick wins that can help. Of course nothing will compete with quality content so make sure that is the base of your website.

BRANDING

Often with a web design job, branding comes naturally and involves creating a new logo or updating an existing one, choosing the right colours and suitable images. An elegant logo is the key to grabbing the attention of potential clients.

E-COMMERCE

I have designed & build websites with e-commerce function using Woocomerce. I'm also a Shopify Partner. If you thinking about opening an online shop I can advise you on what's best for your brand.

ILLUSTRATION

I really enjoy creating some funny looking characters. These can be great additions to your website or game. I have some beagles, robots, monsters and birds in my collection already. I just finished working on Campi who is the main character in a short animated movie piece I did.

MOTION GRAPHICS

I’m using After Effects to animate kinetic text and or illustrated characters. Animation is a great way to display information over video footage, images or illustrations, to help get across your message to a wider audience. Look at the example here. If you have a new business and want to explain to your clients what your product is all about in a short, 45-60 sec video, then animation is the perfect fit.

INFOGRAPHIC

The best way to explain and translate big chunks of information to your audience is by using infographics. It makes even complicated and data heavy pieces comprehensive, easy to understand and remember. It is also a great way to decorate your website.
