"I don't intend to build in order to have clients; I intend to have clients in order to build."
I've worked freelance for many small businesses in the UK. Currently I can only take on new clients for smaller projects, but if this suits you then contact me.
Listed here are companies I’ve worked with in various aspects of responsive web design and technical development over the years. For many of the sites listed, I’ve also undertaken:
- content management & strategy
- social media marketing
- search engine optimisation
- pay-per-click advertising
- email marketing
- payment service integration
For testimonials on these projects see my LinkedIn portfolio.
