Hi, I’ve been building websites for nigh on 20 years now (yikes!), mostly under the OaD Design moniker. I first became interested whilst studying film, just as the internet started to take off. The web has come a long way since the heady days of compressing photos to oblivion so they’d load in under 30 seconds and optimizing pages for all of two screen sizes!
Today my focus is on making a website aesthetically pleasing and user friendly on a 4″ smartphone screen, a 90″ HD TV screen and everything in between.
Complementing the websites I’ve also produced plenty of designs for print media; posters, flyers, brochures and the odd guide book. I’ve also kept my hand in with skills learnt at college, filming and editing a number of promotional and instructional films.
As websites have become an increasingly crucial part of a business it’s important that website owners have options when it comes to control of their own site. Some clients like to update their website themselves, others prefer me to do it for them. Either way I build websites with a Content Management System (CMS) that’s simple to use, robust and adaptable making it a great platform for a website to grow over time.
