Let's do what

Hello, I’m Sia Gaur, an independent design professional based in India, with over six years of functional experience in developing innovative and engaging web & digital media solutions covering all things visual, UI, UX, responsive, and conceptual.

I work for a wide range of clients around the world, helping build timeless and meaningful design solutions with real purpose and value.  With a masters degree in management and a formal training in fashion technology, I have a strong fascination for art and design, and more specifically how these disciplines can integrate with modern web technology.

I am a true blue lover of design and all things creative. Crafting beautiful visual identities, developing friendly user interfaces, and turning brilliant design ideas into reality is what excites me the most.

Focused on providing simple, intelligent solutions to a diverse range of clients and contexts, I strive to utilize the latest pre-processing technology, client side build tools and CSS architectural methodologies to produce clean, modular front-end code and mobile first web solutions. Coupling aesthetic design sensibilities with user experience and front-end development allows me to build the best possible online experience from concept all the way to code delivery.

As a freelancer, I wear many hats, and I’m involved in numerous roles such as: managing multiple projects, brand consultation, marketing and concept development. I also help startups and companies improve their online appearance with code and solve complex design problems with clear and effective solutions.

/ Capabilities

Good design is always in service of the user and it’s my job to ensure that a project achieves both its business objectives and the needs of its users above all else in the most uncluttered yet intentional fashion.

I specialize in the development of responsive websites based on HTML5, WordPress, Magento, Prestashop, Shopify, Joomla using valid semantic coding practices. My technical proficiency include demonstrated experience in PHP, CSS3, JQuery, Bootstrap, JavaScript to name a few. I have a fairly extensive knowledge & familiarity with Adobe Photoshop, CorelDraw, Illustrator, InDesign & modern Typography. My aim is to deliver visually stunning and functionally beautiful design products, with zero errors and delays. May be this is why, my clients speak fairly well about my professional & detail-oriented approach, aesthetic sense and excellent coding standards.
