Hallo Img.ly, ich bin Mikael!
I’ll revert right back to English, as I don’t speak German! 😬
So who’s this guy?
My name is Mikaël Gramont, I’m an experienced Web Developer. Lists are easy to scan, so a few things about me:
- been a professional Web Dev since 2007.
- I’ve done a bunch of Back-end but like the Front-end best
- spent a few years in Silicon Valley working for Google
- currently reside in France
- love the Web platform, and care about performance, a11y and progressive enhancement
Why’s he interested in Img.ly?
I’ve always liked to work with images. When I was a kid, I loved to play with graphics programs (Paint Shop Pro 3!), 3D suites (3D Studio… before it was Max), and games, so I’m naturally drawn to your PhotoEditorSDK project!
In fact, regardless of the outcome of our conversations, I might try and integrate it into my Surfing Dirt project (see below)!
Personal projects portfolio
Check out some of my personal projects that could convey my interests:
Canvas experiment - 2018 - Vanilla JS / canvas
Just messing about with canvas, more details in a dedicated post
My vector self - 2016 - Affinity Designer
With the goal of making business cards, I set out to draw a vector version of myself:
Gangnam Style easter egg- 2014 - Closure
This wasn't a personal project, but more of a thing a couple of YouTube colleagues and I built outside of work.
An easter egg we wrote and put on the YouTube video page when Gangnam Style reached 2 billion views.
Ziling Zhao and I worked on integrating the code into the page, did the canvas and custom JS, and added character animations provided by Taeho Ko.
Jim - 1996 - The Games Factory
This was a platform game I created in high school with a program called The Games Factory.
I did all the graphics by hand, using the Manikin program which I ported to JS (see above).

You can find code samples on my résumé page.
So there you have it, I hope to hear from you soon!
