A scandinavian eye for design
Welcome to blog and company Blendrocks. My name is Deani Hansen.
I'm from Denmark where I currently live in Copenhagen.
By education I'm a computer scientist and by
heart I'm a visual designer and developer.
I'm a self employed independent contractor specialised in developing
and designing great app and interactive experiences
for companies all over the world.
I'm an occasional speaker on Windows App
Design and development on conferences, mainly in Europe.
Blendrocks is my little oasis of design where I get to showcase
my work, apps and hopefully some knowledge on
designing and developing Windows apps.
Thank you for stopping by.
Design review testomonials
" I was kind of skeptic at the beginning, because I thought that I would only get a few tips and that would be all, but I was so wrong. These review sessions helped my app a lot. From the first update,
I get only 5 star reviews, and a lot of users like the new UI.
Deani really has a trained eye for noticing even the small flaws that may not seem important,
but when they're fixed they give your app a whole new look.
As a developer, he knows a lot about UX and his suggestions really helped my app attract users."

"This is the first time I used BlendRocks for an app review. Deani has been amazing throughout the whole process and was able to quickly identify my needs and come up with
design solutions that rock!
He's very friendly and helpful, professional and really skillful. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for gifted designer and I will be definitely working on a project with Deani
in the future. This is the beginning of great things to come, so
thank you Deani for all your help and time."
