“Hi! My name is Livia and I love design and photography which I've been doing for most of my life. I ♥ Canon cameras; Apple Macs; dabbling in Adobe Creative Suite software; and wrangling XHTML, CSS, basic PHP and Wordpress. Comic Sans and Papyrus fonts scare me. I ♥ eating out with friends. I really ♥ camels. Have you figured out what 'chamelle' means yet? According to some silly online quiz I am a 'hippie'. I believe in environmental sustainability, and like meditation and yoga (when I get around to doing it) so I guess it must be right ;) In October 2010 I moved to France to practise my French and nurture my love of foreign languages (and eat lots of yummy food!). Here, I found plenty of inspiration amongst all the beautiful places and things I see… In May 2011 I moved to Geneva, Switzerland and being a former Sydney beach girl, I am getting used to the beauty of the large lake and the mountains. This blog contains bits and pieces about my life and work. Hope you enjoy reading it, glad you made it this far. Please drop me a line, I'd love to hear from you!

Web, computer, tech and other interesting (primarily female-orientated) online companies…
I added some to my Twitter list and it occured to me that almost all of them were in San Francisco or Silicon Valley so I decided to compile a list of companies/locations just for my own interests’ sake. Let me tell you, finding this information [...]
I’ve been thinking about this topic a lot lately. Why are there so few females working in the IT/tech/web industries? I happened to catch up with one of my female friends (who is a software developer) the other night and she had some interesting comments to say on the matter (which I won’t repeat here).
I just found this article from Coroflot by accident.
It lists design salaries covering the fields of: graphic design, interior design, fashion design, multimedia/web design and architecture. There’s a lot of interesting graphs featuring comparisons between the different disciplines, different countries of the world and the different levels (junior, mid-level, senior).
