Hello,
I'm Paras paa-ruhs

A multi-disciplinary frontend developer – with an eye for design – interested in all things web, and passionate about Webflow.

Also, love Pokemon and Philosophy.

Present

Mostly Webflow & No-Code; Some WordPress

I've been running my own WordPress plugin venture Pixify (solo) since late 2018. There, I handle everything from strategy to development, design, sales, and support.

It's mostly running on autopilot, with some 10-20 hours per week being invested into it.

Primarily, <span>from the last 2 years, I build on Webflow</span>; most projects being in collaboration with other freelancers and agencies.

Over time, Webflow is what I've become pretty passionate about, as a platform for building on the web with speed and delight. Just the right amount of abstraction from code, and a lot of fun too!

Some of my Recent Webflow Work

Besides these shown below, I have also worked on several complex projects – including for an enterprise company – with different agencies, but all signed under an NDA, so can't share them.

Some Testimonials from my collaborations

“Paras went above and beyond to ensure that the designs were not only delivered on time but were of top notch quality. I was especially impressed by the care he put into thinking about the usability of the web app. He made lots of helpful suggestions to improve the product, and implemented them very efficiently.

He was super easy to work with, friendly, and highly communicative throughout the entire project.”

Past

WordPress; Micro-SaaS'; Webflow

The initial days - CUstom development and WordPress

Keen about web and programming, in the initial days (2016), when I used to blog on Google's Blogger platform, I <span>started by tinkering around its HTML templates</span>. Moved to WordPress, I started doing the same there too. <span>Dived deeper into HTML, CSS and JavaScript</span>.

Micro-SaaS & Pixify

Alongside, I <span>developed a few mini-web-apps;</span> some downloaders, calculators, and internal tools for my blogs (like one automatic image generator plugin).

The notable one was a keyword research tool called Toolfeast, a SaaS built on top of WordPress, with over 6k registered users. Also created a reddit-automation micro-SaaS tool. In between, <span>developed a couple of custom SPAs</span> (Single Page Apps; JavaScript-based) for clients too.

In 2017, I faced a problem with filtering and developed a WordPress plugin for it. After a year, created a WordPress theme as well, and merged both of them under Pixify. Developed another plugin in the end of 2019.

Webflow in the meanwhile

I've had quite an on-and-off relationship with Webflow. Have been following it since 2017, but only got serious about it since the last 1.5 years. In that time before, I'd get into the interface and play around at times, check out some blogs and videos about it, but that was about it.

It had always interested me as a very unique and flexible tool, but I have had been prioritizing all these other side projects and Pixify until 2020.

2015 – Blogger & HTML Templates; WordPress

Started my digital journey with blogging. Got interested in design and started tinkering around the HTML templates. Dived deeper into HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

2016 – Web Apps & SaaS; Intro to Webflow

Developed a few mini-web-apps – downloaders, calculators, and internal tools for my blogs (like one automatic image generator plugin). The notable one was a keyword research tool called Toolfeast, a SaaS built on top of WordPress, with over 6k registered users. All designed and developed solo.

Meanwhile, got to know about Webflow and started tinkering around.

2017-2020 – SaaS, WordPress plugins, no-code tools

I faced a problem with filtering and developed a WordPress plugin for it. Created another plugin for Elementor page builder to expand its capabilities with tools for designers (some inspired by Webflow).

Alongside, created a reddit-automation SaaS. In between, developed a couple of custom SPAs (Single Page Apps; JavaScript-based) for clients too.

And in the meanwhile, also got familiar with a bunch of no-code tools like Zapier, Integromat, Notion, Airtable, etc.

2020 – Got serious with Webflow

I've had quite an on-and-off relationship with Webflow. Following it since 2016, but only got serious about it since the last 2 years. In that time before, I'd get into the interface and play around at times, check out some blogs and videos about it, but that was about it.

It had always interested me as a very unique and flexible tool, but I have had been prioritizing all these other side projects and Pixify until 2020.

Desired Future

Creating more impact on the web; through Webflow and low-code

What I'm doing right now through Pixify and freelance projects makes me happy, and I now want to make a bigger impact; reach and provide greater value to more people.

I couldn't quite accomplish that by myself yet, so I'd like to join a like-minded team of people to make that happen.

Webflow is where a lot of my interests intersect – frontend development, design, web, and problem-solving. So, this is the direction I want to continue walking towards in the foreseeable future.

Technicals

Webflow, Figma, no-code tools, and the Web

Over the years, I've worked with a lot of tools and web technologies to aid in my different projects. Some relevant ones:

Familiar with Webflow pretty much inside-out
Working with Figma from 5+ years
Solid understanding of web's fundamentals, layout systems, internal functioning, CSS Gotchas, best practices
Familiarity and experience with a bunch of no-code/low-code tools, including Zapier, Make (Integromat), Airtable, WeGlot
Working knowledge of JavaScript & jQuery, various libraries, REST APIs
Experience with different HTML & CSS structuring systems like TailwindCSS, Material Design, BEM nomenclature, etc.

Working Together

Culture; Ownership; Impact

I've always been very interested and passionate about web, UX, development, and businesses.

Being authentic and transparent, having ownership of my work, and freedom to pitch in ideas/suggestions matters a lot. Besides that, a calm and asynchronous work culture, and a flexible schedule is also something that I highly prefer.

Paras-And-You

Having designed, developed, and launched multiple of my own web apps, a product venture solo, and lots of projects (with clients, agencies, and freelancers) across various domains (design, development, QA) over the years, I can bring in more than just the core Webflow skills – supporting no-code with low-code (custom JavaScript) when needed, crafting optimum solutions for the given problem.

All this that I've learnt and built so far has helped me become a self-starter, disciplined, and a highly communicative partner for work. And it's been through curiosity and the want to create more delightful experiences on the web.

Also, I'm looking to join a high-impact no-code/Webflow development agency full-time. If that does sound like you, do reach out.
