Filebrowser at SecureDocs, Inc

One of my first major projects while working at SecureDocs was revamping the design of the Filebrowser interface. The objective was to provide a new visual language that could be flexible for multiple markets and be applied to redesign other parts of the application. The work I implemented here would later influence other projects.

Last year, I started redesigning my personal website. It used to be a single page with a few links and a resume download. However, I eventually decided to start from scratch and create something completely new. I named it "Mavericks," inspired by the macOS version name that resonated with me. The website is built using React and the Next.js framework, with a super-simple design and a media component that zooms in and out. It serves as a great project for showcasing my work and experiments, as well as an opportunity to enhance my front-end skills and explore the world of React.js. Heres to the journey. 🍻
