About Me

That's a pic of meHi there, I am Bojan (check the Google Translate pronunciation). I’m a web designer from Croatia. I’ve been making websites professionally for the past ten years or so, and making websites was the only job I’ve ever had. It all started way back in high school, when I started dissecting websites to find out how they work (you can read more about my history and my web design manifesto). Since the start of my career, I’ve worked on hundreds of projects for clients across the globe.

I currently run a small web design company called JanJan and work for Toptal, a lovely network of freelancers. While I am very happy with my current engagements, feel free to get in touch with project proposals.

About This Website

Yesterdayishere has been online since 2004 and has been redesigned more times than I can remember. I’ve been known to use it to experiment, so don’t be surprised if things look out of shape from time to time. The blog is my way of giving back to the community, reminding myself of things I would like to remember, and making myself write. A lot of what I’ve learnt comes from blogs of all kinds, so this is my way of repaying the debt, and if the blog helps anyone in any way, I will be super, super glad.

I’ve been using WordPress as a publishing platform since the launch of the website in 2004 and I’m currently using a custom theme based on Underscores.

Trivia

  • Bojan means the fighting one.
  • My favourite weapons of choice are pen and paper for sketching, Sketch app for design, and Coda 2 for coding.
  • I work standing up, most of the time, using an IKEA standing desk.
  • I’m using a MacBook Pro as a primary machine and a Thunderbolt display right next to it. I use a Twelve South stand for the laptop and a wireless Apple keyboard and trackpad.
