Miguel created very imaginative, yet usable, designs, which were helpful in developing our product. Moreover, Miguel has an amazing, creative sense of color with an unparalleled eye for juxtiposing color combinations. He is also a pleasure to work with.” / Michael Douma / Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative.

“Miguel Albadan se convirtió en muy poco tiempo en uno de los pocos freelancers de confianza con los que trabajo, por su gran conocimiento del medio, su comprensión de las necesidades y su brillante ejecución. Realizar proyectos con Miguel no solo supone obtener muy buenos resultados para los clientes que compartimos, sino que además se aprende. Es un gran profesional, que se toma muy en serio cada proyecto porque básicamente cree en lo que hace, en lo que sabe y en el propio medio.” / Pau Costa Mari / Top qualities: Expert, High Integrity, Creative.
“Carl Langebaek, vicerrector de Investigaciones de la Universidad de los Andes, y la Facultad de Economía-cene han apoyado incondicionalmente la reedición de este libro, que generó los grabados que Miguel Ángel Albadán presentó como tesis de grado en la Facultad de Artes de la Universidad Nacional de Colombia. A él agradezco el gesto de permitir que sus ilustraciones acompañen esta segunda edición.” / Hermes Tovar / Publicación: La Estación del Miedo o La Desolación Dispersa.
I’ve always liked math, although I have professional training as a graphic designer, I can understand programming in java, php and actionscript. This particular profile has given me a complex vision of web projects and drive my creativity and design solutions-oriented effectiveness in the process of programming and usability for the end-user experience.
Starting in 2000, when I designed my first web sites for companies of fashion designers and architects. I assume websites as a project derived from a good brand building, if there is no I do a little research and design a general concept to define a logo and in many cases produce a web-oriented photo studio. Since 2005 I specialized in interface design and visualization of large volumes of information in Madrid. Since 2010 I have focused on HTML5 and CSS styles, looking for dynamic designs that give prominence to photography to harness the full screen size, also looking for 99% compatibility with various browsers and mobile devices.
Is an appropriation of RUP model that is used for software development, with this model we can guarantee 99% of quality in all our products. Each project has a production line systematized into four phases: Inception, design, development and testing.
