Hi, my name is Jan Beck. I’m a traveling Webdesigner.

I have extensive skills in front-end design and development with WordPress. I’m a strong advocate of user-centric design, progressive enhancement and open technologies. I believe the web should be for everyone.

On this website I share what I have learned so others can benefit from it. Other fields of my interest are information science, digital music, self-education, minimalism, hacking, pre-modern philosophy, freelance work, entrepreneurship and travel.

I was born and grew up in Germany, made my first website at age 15 and finished my education as designer (Mediengestalter). I’m living a self-employed nomadic lifestyle.


Thoughts about design, WordPress development, information science, music, education, minimalism, philosophy, hacking, freelance work, productivity and the art of living.
