Superfriend Spotlight: Veerle Pieters

Inspiring great design through sharing knowledge.

Veerle Pieters.

We are so excited to have Veerle Pieters create a bit of desktop magic for this project. Besides being one of the nicest people we know, Veerle is a Belgian designer with a passion for Swiss typography. She speaks all over the world, owns her own company Duoh!, and works on fabulously interesting projects. Not to mention, scanning her Instagram photos makes you feel like you’ve just gone on a picture perfect vacation.

We think Veerle’s design is so stunning, that it’s available in every reward over $1.

Superfriend Spotlight: Val Head

Crafting delightful web sites.

Val Head.
Val Head.

Val Head is a designer/developer, speaker, consultant, and all-around wonderful person. Val wrote the CSS Animations Pocket Guide for Five Simple Steps and founded the super friendly Web Design Day conference (this makes sense because Val’s one of the friendliest people we know). She also co-hosts the Ladies in Tech podcast that asks guests to share some of their most interesting speaking experiences.
