Web Designer, South Lakeland 

My Journey

I've been around for a while now and I have a lot of experience. I live near Ulverston in South Lakeland, at the southern edge of the Cumbrian Lake District. My clients come from near and afar, throughout the UK and Europe.

I built my first commercial website in 2001 after completing a course in Dreamweaver web design. My tutor recommended me for the job.

At the time I was mainly working, freelance but virtually full time, as a graphic designer for a holiday company in Lancaster where I designed all their brochures, publicity and advertising.

From there I went to work full time for Iomart Internet in Lancaster as a full time web designer.

In 2006 I relaunched my business with the focus on web design. I was also working part time for a local IT company managing a number of high end retail fashion websites.

I also started a course with the Open University in Web Applications & Development, which I completed in 2010.

Earlier Work Experience

This includes technical publishing, mainly working on the layout for language translations of technical manuals. I also freelanced for a local college producing course materials and did the cover design, illustrations and typesetting for a number of published books.

Before this I worked at a major UK Arts Centre in the Marketing Department.
