Web developer and
My name is Maaike, I'm dutch, 28 years old, and I live in Cantabria, Spain. I have been working freelance under the name Pura-web for three years now. I work from the comfort of my own home, where I live with my (almost) husband, three cats and a tarantula named Charlotte.
My clients come from all over the world. Most of my clients are small to medium sized businesses owners, self-employed workers, or private individuals who come to me for all their questions regarding web development, digital design, and printmaking.
Growing up and experiencing the transition from a bulky desktop to a fancy smartphone, I remember always being the go-to person whenever someone had issues with anything digitally. I started building websites when I was 16 and have deepened my knowledge a lot since then. I got my degree in management in 2016 and soon after I started working for a digital design agency in the Netherlands. I slowly realized that my abilities were both creative and technical, so I began to grow into the field of web- and graphic design.
In 2018, I moved to Dubai and worked as a web developer and graphic designer at a marketing and design agency. Then, in 2020, I moved back to Europe, specifically Spain, to start as a freelancer. Now after three years of being self-employed I realize that my passion began with fixing digital issues for family and friends, and now I’m proud to say that I’ve made a career out of it.
I would love to help you grow your business by building a website or designing graphics. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me!
