Who we are

The Pottval & Zeise Media project founded in 2004 in Berlin, Germany. We are a web network and focussed on challenging the boundaries of design. Our love affair is the web development to use a clean, simple and smart design.

History: pottval was a full-time agency for digital communication until 2011. Since then, no new assignments have accepted, because the lining up have changed. New developments and snippets are finding their space here on ZEISE.cloud. Our alias pottval – another word in Swedish for cachalot (old-fashioned term for sperm whale), an immaculate creature and inspired by Herman Melville's novel Moby-Dick – continues to exist for leisure activities.

About me

Let's switch from us to me. Why? I prefer “we”, because there are already a lot of resources and open data that I use or build on it. Furthermore, dear Heinzelmen support me, whom I can't call by name. So there are many unnamed providers of ideas for a justified “we”.

I'm Christian, a passionate web developer located in Berlin, Germany. I like responsive website design with a strong focus on product, digital accessibility and user experience. My strongest skills in back-end programming are JSON, PHP and SQL. During the front-end engineering I create clearly structured websites with Bootstrap 4, CSS3, HTML5 and jQuery. Without bells and whistles.
