About me

As a developer web standards and best practices are important to me, but as I hail from the fine arts, I also understand the reality of small budgets and the wish to experiment. I believe in collaborating closely with graphic designers and clients. Together, we'll look at all the options on the table, and realise the best of 'em, while we work within the constraints of budgets and technology.

The web and I got acquainted when I started studying Interaction Design in 1998. It was only 4 years old and the .com bubble had yet to burst. Much of what I learned was geared at the promise of the internet and the web. Slowly but surely I got hooked up.

Later, when I started pursuing a career in fine arts, I kept on working with the web. I built a portfolio CMS in PHP and started to offer it to fellow artists and small organisations. This got me connected with graphic designers like 75BRoosje Klap and Kommerz. They hired me as a developer on their web related projects, which was the start of Grok Projects: A web development bureau for artistic and creative initiatives.

Some other clients I've been working for are: Arthur van BeekIf I Can't Dance...A.P.EWitte de With Contemporary ArtPamela Spruyt & Esther Noyons.

My free time I spent reading anything from the south of the U.S where I co-founded the artist residency Deltaworkers in New Orleans. But mostly I like to stay at home to make/eat Kimchi and watch movies.

Guido van der Werve is a video artist, composer and athlete operating internationally. His films usually give the impression of being registrations of performances in which endurance, classical music and chess play some kind of role. He designed this portfolio website himself. I turned it into a responsive WordPress theme.
