About Rockatee Design
What is Rockatee?
Rockatee is a one-woman web and graphic design studio located in Hamburg, Germany.
I design functional, aesthetically demanding, and user-centric websites.
I also create illustrations, graphics, and icons.
Who do I Work With?
Ideally I work with small businesses or single persons. Smaller projects allow me to get involved on a much more personal level. I get to know the person I work with, can accurately determine the business objectives and work out an efficient strategy that accomplishes these goals succesfully.
To give you a better idea of what I mean by small, here are some examples:
- web application site
- desktop application site
- personal blog
- local businesses who need their brand extended to the online world
- professional/commercial blog
- church sites
- small online shop
- graphic design elements (icons, illustrations, etc.)
- GUI (Graphic User Interface) for a web and mobile application
That's me. My name is Maleika Esther Attawel, and I was born in the beautiful Metropole, Hamburg, Germany.
I have a great passion for everything and anything that has to do with design. But I also love good code, so what better medium to choose than that of web design?
I do have hobbies outside the internet. That sounds mighty crazy, doesn't it? Those include literature, history (predominantly ancient), watching British comedy such as BlackAdder, Jeeves & Wooster, A bit of Fry and Laurie, Fawlty Towers, and French & Saunders. I also like old things. Vintage things. They need not be cool. Just old.
Latin & Greek Philology, Philosophy, and English Literature at the University of Hamburg.
I do not have formal training in design. I started to delve into the world of design in the year 2000. That's ten years ago. I'm 100% self-taught and have been creating professional designs since 2005.
