Valentin Genev

Freelance web designer and WordPress developer

About me

I spend most of my time on projects related to web design and WP theme development. When I'm not occupied by work, I'm trying to catch up with the ever-evolving technologies outside of the WP ecosystem.

I would like to continue advancing my front-end skills; I'm planning on learning Vue JS and Laravel, and I’m trying to build WordPress blocks with React.

Recent projects

Alex Penda

WordPress site; subcontract — theme and plugin development only

A big chunk of this site's content is shown with AJAX requests, which was fairly new for me. The site utilises new post type for some of its content — the events; this feature is handled by a plugin to ensure that the content will continue to appear after a theme change.

E and S Tax Services

WordPress site; design and development

I tried to make this site as easy to maintain as I can; almost all of its content is handled by the block editor, widget areas and a custom post type.

Oborishte 5

WordPress site; subcontract — theme and plugin development only

This project required the building of quite a few unique page templates handled mostly by custom fields (ACF) and a custom post type

Side projects

Sand Carousel WP

This is a WordPress carousel plugin. It utilises a custom post type for the slide creation and a shortcode for the insertion. The slides are grouped into a custom taxonomy; every group represents a single carousel. The carousel comes with a minimal design that's easy to rewrite and fairly semantic HTML.
