You might have already read the blurb over on the right, but if you want to know a bit more about me, here it is. Thanks for checking by.
My name is Jerome Dahdah, but you can call me Jerry. A year ago, I was a Junior Art Director at an internet agency where I designed corporate websites for a living in the wonderful city of Düsseldorf, Germany. Then I quit my job, gave notice on my apartment and sold almost everything I own. Why? To travel the world! I’m currently in Berlin, Germany.
My mom is German, my dad is Lebanese, my name is French and I grew up Canadian, so that may or may not give me a slightly different view on things. It certainly has kept me curious about the rest of the world, which is why I am now undertaking this adventure.
In my free time, I like to do some occasional writing, love to spend time outside with my camera and travel to inspiring cities. I also used to organize the Tweetup Düsseldorf. I’m passionate about people, the social web, usability, aesthetics, inspiration and good food.
And lots of other things.
I’m going to answer some questions I’ll pretend people actually asked me.
Why all the gray?
I like gray! No actually, for me it’s all about the content. Good design, in my opinion, is the kind that doesn’t jump in your face. It remains invisible and structures and empowers whatever it is you’re communicating. Since gray is so wonderfully neutral, it works really well for showing my photos and other colorful work without getting in the way. It’s also easy on the eyes so you can spend hours and hours of your life reading my site. Hey, I can dream.
What is that amazing font?
Glad you asked! I’m using the wonderful free and fully open sourced Titillium typeface.
Hey you jerk, this site isn’t working in IE7/8/whatever.
Some parts are a little broken, I know. While I’ll do everything possible to have your site running flawlessly in Internet Explorer, dear Potential Client™, I really just got tired of postponing my site launch because of a browser that embodies why we can’t have nice things. I’ll get it fixed. Promise.
