Starting out in 1997 I quickly found my passion for everything related to design. How can we, as designers, improve the lives of others by offering better solutions to common problems? I served my design and pre-press apprenticeship around Staffordshire and Cheshire working alongside very talented printers with clients such as Siemens, Sharp, Skoda, local Development Agencies etc., until 2007. By this time I was starting to get more and more interested in web technologies and how businesses are leveraging them to improve how they sell their products and services globally in the online market.
I left the agency that I worked for in August 2007 to work full-time freelance as a designer and developer. I quickly realised how difficult it is to run your own business, without relying on a salary each month, and I had to learn from a lot of mistakes. Since then I have been studying and practicing UI/UX design, server- and client-side technologies and building cool things for the web.
Running my own business, having a long-standing history in the design industry and quickly learning new technologies allows me to offer a true full-service to my clients without hiring in costly additional help. All web/app development is hand-coded by myself, absolutely nothing is out-sourced to other countries or cheap bidding sites.
As an experienced outdoor enthusiast who enjoys rock climbing, mountaineering and mountain biking, I can offer particularly deep insight and value in this niche market but over the years I have worked with businesses of all shapes and sizes and over many different sectors so if you have a business problem, no matter how big or small, that you would like solving then please do get in touch via email or call 07773 429068 to chat.Get in Touch
