Brizk is the portfolio of freelance Web Designer Kai Brach. Brach explains that the most recent design of his site is “all about simplicity”. He moved away from watercolour illustrations and complex images towards a design that he felt better represented the work he is interested in. “There’s now more emphasis on typography and responsiveness (media queries for a mobile version) plus i employ a bit of CSS3 code to play with things like navigation”, he says.

Infinvision helps its client build succesfull ventures online. This website has been designed by Pedro Heitor and Aiste Martinaityte, and they selected Joomla as its CMS. “We needed to have three different access levels to the content within that section. – the registered, unregistered and paid. Joomla made it a breeze to set this up and manage easily”.
Egle Karalyte, founder of the company said “We needed our website to allow multiple users to work with it by giving them diiferent acces levels and permissions”, she explains. “Joomla is absolutely free, it has efficient control of users, links, content and files, search-engine friendly URLs, content syndication (RSS), blogs, picture, galleries, archiving facilities enabling the re-use of content and a simple workflow system”. The website’s Library sections were a key factor in them choosing the CMS.
