Waldo Broodryk Portrait

Hi, I'm Waldo Broodryk

I serve the team at Webflow. 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.

@favoriteshape 1/ From my experience with agencies: Design Director = Manages, managers and client relationships as well as sets the general vision and goals for the team to bubble up to company wide initiatives. Works closely with AE's and Design Managers to stay on track for client goals.

October 14, 2019

@favoriteshape 2/ Design Manager = Manage individual contributors to carry out the missions/goals of the clients. They usually work closely with producers (print, digital, non-traditional production) and they report to a director. Typical 1 director per 2-5 managers. Highly dependent on org

One of my favorite parts about working @webflow is the kindness and gratitude practiced here. There's not much more uplifting than coming back and reading over 20 ”Props” messages about the team which you work with πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ from the week before.

October 14, 2019

This is such an excellent write up, Charli! I couldn't agree more with your stance. πŸ’œπŸ’―πŸ‘ I've also personally had monetization disabled as I couldn't control that part of the experience and I find advertisements obnoxious when irrelevant/in the way of good content. https://t.co/CRRZjgLJUH

October 14, 2019

I have mixed feelings about paid advertising. I've worked on multi-million dollar campaigns in the past and seen ROIs of 300%+ on many of them. My primary dissonance w/ads is that it's contributing to a web which I don't enjoy. I much prefer organic content and partnerships πŸ’œ

Thank you for speaking out about this, Charli. I truly admire you and the incredible content which you produce. Thank you for being such a positive, life-giving force to our community πŸ’œ
