Digital Marketing Is What We’re ALL About

Over 20 Years Experience of Web Site Design

Web site design and digital marketing have been a services I have offered through my digital design agency since 1999. My first web site was a counterpart to a Dorset based magazine. The online version soon superseded the printed version, and developed into an online webzine, a long time before such things were commonplace on the web.

Digital Marketing in Dorset

At the turn of the millennium, Dorset was slowly awakening to the possibilities of digital marketing. My earliest commisions were from business associates here in Dorset; they were hand written, coded line by line, in nothing more than a simple text editor, and then painstakingly tested in various browsers such as Netscape and Internet Explorer. Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator became my trusted friends for graphic design – and all a long, long time before ‘photoshopping’ slipped into our modern vocabulary. Things have certainly moved on, and it’s been a fascinating journey to be a part of the growth of the web in Dorset.

Website Designing in Dorset and Beyond

As people around Dorset became aware of my work, I soon became asked if I could help others too.  Gradually I established a small digital design agency creating bespoke web site designs for small local Dorset traders, looking for their initial web presence. This encouraged me to branch out into a professional freelance role, and beyond Dorset.

I began working as a web designer for projects based in London and all around the world, but to this day, it is still working in close partnership with local Dorset businesses that gives me the greatest satisfaction. So if you are based in the Dorset area, and would to know more about how how to get your company online, please contact Wessex Digital design service for a no obligation chat.

Freelance Website Designer

As a freelance web designer I’ve had business to business work with high profile Dorset based graphic and digital design agencies. My professional journey has found me in a variety of roles, varying from supplying hosting services and technical support, to working on large-scale projects within a team of web designers. Much of the commercial work I’ve undertaken has had an industrial focus: for example designing websites for civil engineering companies, industrial installation engineers, and Dorset based property developers. On occasion I’ve been hired to do corrective de-bugging for other digital design companies when things haven’t turned out quite right for them!

Dorset History Going Online

I count myself lucky to have had the privilege to provide hosting and technical support services for web sites of a more historical theme, involving Dorset museums and the curation of valuable artefacts. Then on a more social and recreational note, I have been involved in web development for the tourism industry, digital design projects for a high-profile Dorset based motorcycle speedway team, and web sites for their individual competitors.

One of my proudest achievements has to be coding the famous Green Chain website, which links together urban parkland, sections of greenbelt, nature trails and SSSI’s across SE London, into a seamless series of walks for adults of all ages and abilities (or disabilities). As a conservation and wildlife project, it also provides an invaluable educational resource for London’s schools. I have also designed a website for a Local Government project, and a completely branded portfolio of websites promoting a chain of residential care homes across Dorset.
