Veerle Pieters is a Belgian web and graphic designer, known throughout the world for her elegantly designed web projects, her tutorials promoting CSS, and her articles and blog posts on graphic design, web design, and modern home design.
As a child, she wrote her name and other words not just backwards but as an exact mirror image of what the letters should be. She was left-handed but taught to write “right,” growing up oddly ambidextrous as a result.
From an early age, she immersed herself in drawing, and love of illustration remains a hallmark of her work. Her career began in print, in 1992, focusing on logos, stationery, and brochures—and using the name Duoh! In 1995, she added website design, user interfaces for intranets, and multimedia development.
In 2000, she founded Duoh! n.v. with Geert Leyseele. They choose their projects based on how well they connect with a company, and have worked on everything from ExpressionEngine 2.0’s GUI to innovative, creative projects for the Library of Congress and sites for businesses large and small. Veerle is also Design Lead of Fab where she’s responsible for the design of website and the GUI design of Fab’s iPhone and iPad app.
