Hi, I’m Paul a London based Web Developer/Designer originally from Newcastle Upon Type.
10 years ago a guy I was on work experience with showed me how to create a basic web page using Notepad. Very shortly after I realised this allowed me to combine both my artistic and scientific abilities which was a sure bet to start a career in.
In 2003 I began studying BSc Internet Computing at Northumbria University. This gave me a strong hold in programming and development which I completed with a First. The course was great and taught me how to develop a website to professional standards but there was something missing, this was obvious, design – how to design a website that looked professional. This is where Web Designer and .Net Magazine enhanced my skills set and have since allowed me to freelance.
10 years on, after a mix of design/development roles within consumer electronics and financial services; I have honed my skills and refined the technologies I use to HTML5 for semantics, CSS3 for styling and .Net for robust scalable functionality.
