My professional status: independent web designer/developer
Website client: me
Dates: September 2000 - present
Brief: to design and build myself a website which would advertise my web design and other skills. My two target markets for this site are design companies looking for contractors or permanent staff, and small to medium-sized companies looking for someone to build them an excellent website with the minimum of fuss. It also functions as a portfolio site, providing a complete history of my web design and development work since 1996.
My responsibilities include:
- Development and HTML, CSS and jQuery
- Writing and editing content
- Everything else
- Client liaison - I'm pretty easy to deal with - and I'm always around!
I'll be changing it all next week of course..... Just for fun. It's a never-ending process - and I love that.
