Welcome!

I am Róbert Pataki, a Creative Technologist with 9+ years experience in Flash technologies and 5+ years experience in the creative advertising field after having worked at several online advertising agencies in London and in Budapest.

Specialising mainly in the development of rich media content, using Flash to produce interactive banners, widgets, games and microsites and also having the experience in design and planning IA, UX and UI for interactive content.

Lately I am using my Flash programming and design skills to learn all the magic of Front-End Development and I am loving it!

Below you can see my latest and favourite projects I've worked on up to date.
