WEBSITE DESIGN

I have worked in the field of website design and development now for over ten years for lots of different clients accross different industries. Within this time I have two website design consultancies Gemini Studios (sold 2008) and now Creative-Dynamics. I feel that it is important to keep up to date with the latest web trends and styles in order to pass this onto clients.

SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION (SEO) & INTERNET MARKETING

I regard SEO and internet marketing the 'yang' of what a complete website should have when designing or optimising and believe that SEO And design are reliant on each other if they are going to fulfill the needs and expectations of the client's website. This is why any website that I personally develop is already optimised for the Google spiders to find and regards as a highly 'user friendly' with a logical structure and thus give it a higher page rank. I also offer a SEO & Internet Marketing service for exisiting websites and so far have managed to get ALL clients to the first page of Google using even generic keywords.

MULTIMEDIA & INTERACTIVE DESIGN

With a PhD currently in the pipeline to finish in December 2010, I have extensive experience in multimedia application development and interactive design. In marrying my design and photoshop experience with my development/programming skill, I have effectlvely produced sophisiticated multimedia systems with high accessibility and usability.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

I am probably the only website designer that is also a regiseterd PRINCE2 practitioner that only has teached a PRINCE2 style course on a distance learning/podcasting website (gogogh.com).  The course was aimed at individuals to pass the Foundation and Practitioner levels. but also developed my own process methodology called the Harlequin method. Contact me for further details.
