Waldo Broodryk Portrait

Hi, I'm Waldo Broodryk

I serve the team at Webflow,Β I'm a web designer and lover of animating all things on the web. I enjoy writing about my thoughts on web design, going hiking, snowboarding, surfing, swimming, making YouTube videos, taking pictures of our doggo and hanging out with friends and family.

Sometimes I share things on Twitter

This is likely the easiest place to get ahold of me. Just Tweet at me or send me a DM onΒ Twitter if you'd like to connect.

@charliecwaite The fact that you know the appropriate term for "Rabbit" makes my heart so happy πŸ˜‚ Also I can't handle this GIF πŸ™ˆ https://t.co/WcidjFaIiz

@charliecwaite It only gets better! Just you wait, there's a talking raccoon and everything. Oh and he can fly space ships. https://t.co/cWKzfc3EWP

@mattvaru I think ~40 minutes because I was watching a video for the first 14 minutes and kinda spaced out a few times πŸ˜‚ could probably rebuild it in 5-10 minutes and animate it in about 10 minutes if I had an action plan instead of just tinkering around. πŸ˜„
