Nice to meet you!
Hi, welcome to Hoolite. My name is Dirk, I was born in 1987 and live in Antwerp, Belgium. And I, have a passion for the internet and its design.
As a professional bachelor student Interactive Multimedia Design in Mechelen I’d love to show you my web design portfolio. If you like to give feedback, don’t hesitate to send me an email by filling in the contact form.
A little bit more about me
It all started many years ago when I first discovered the internet. In the beginning it was all about MSN groups where you could build your own group and chat rooms with limited design options. It was all about animated flashy GIFs, the more, the better. Not long after that, I discovered Photoshop. I believe it was Photoshop 7. I started learning this program. After some time MSN decided to close MSN groups down but the passion of web design stayed, so I started to build a forum with phpBB and build my first real website. I called it: Webhog. At that time I started to write tutorials and shared it with my members and on the world wide web. Little as I was, I couldn’t afford this hobby to maintain the website so after a year I closed it down.
But the passion was still there. Years later, in 2009, I decided that I wanted to do this for a living so I went to a web design school. Now I am university student Interactive Multimedia Design and I am still in love with it. You should definitely check out my portfolio!
History of Hoolite.be
Hoolite pronounced as ‘Hoo-lit’ started as a school assignment where we had to design a logo. After the usual amount of brainstorming and sketching I had created my first brand: Hoolite. Not long after designing my logo, I’ve made my first real portfolio site and released it on July 9 2011. Between 2011 and now, Hoolite already had several kinds of designs and more will come. After some time, the logo changed slightly. At first the font changed and later the logo itself got remastered.
