Who am I?
Hi. My name is Dino Latoga and I am a Web and Graphic Designer, based in the Philippines.
I’ve been designing stuff for the web and print since 2002. I create my designs and layout using mostly Fireworks, Illustrator and Photoshop. I convert these designs into XHTML and CSS using Notepad ++ so you can be sure all the code writing I do is clean and well formed. Clean and organized code is what I take pride of. I am obsessed in creating valid HTML and CSS.
I am currently working as a fulltime freelance Web Designer at the comfort of my own home. I used to be an office-guy but I grew tired of it. Not that I hate working with people, but the monotonous daily routine sucked me up dry. I’m a fast learner and always into new technology. I always make sure that I catch up with the latest tech and new stuff especially things about web design and development.
I’ve worked for more than a year as a Web Designer for INQUIRER.net, the largest online news site in the Philippines. And I grew up with Trapik Media, an online SEO Marketing company, where I met my first boss and first real co-workers and learned a lot of new stuff and technology that I use today.
What is this website all about?
The purpose of this website is to showcase my works and share my thoughts and ideas through my blog.
This is built on WordPress, a free blogging tool which can also be used as a great CMS with the proper handling. Designed in Fireworks, this website was inspired by the works of great web designers and of course, my family – the driving force that keeps me going.
