My name is Joen Asmussen, I was born on the 25th of November 1979. I live in danish suburbia, where I work remotely for Automattic on WordPress.com and other projects.
I graduated in 1999, went on to study graphic design until 2002. For a bunch of years I worked for Copenhagen-based Titoonic creating little web-games and doing UI for LEGO. After that, in 2007, I was freelance for a period of time until I joined Automattic.
I believe in hard work over inherent gifts; that if you work on what you love, you’ll create great things. I enjoy well-mixed white russians, everything Sweden, cloudspotting and playing in the yard with my daughter Selma.
- This website used to be a monthly updated graphical outlet.
- A decade ago I used to make Flash websites, and was interviewed about it.
- I don’t have a portfolio at the moment, but working on putting something together.
- I’m proud to have designed Twenty Thirteen, the default theme in WordPress 3.6.
- Genericons is an icon font I made. It’s free and GPL.
- I’m contributing to WordPress, particularly these WordPress 3.8 plugin projects: Dash, MP6 and CEUX.
- I really enjoy creating posters, and mean to get back into that soon.
