I have become brilliant at putting together responsive designs, allowing websites to be viewed easily from a selection of devices. From a mobile screens to a large screen width of 1800px on wards, I can develop any design into a responsive master piece to make your website look fantastic on every screen and browser there is.

To ensure that a website has correctly used code without any errors, I use the W3C HTML & CSS Validator website which is a trusted online service that checks through any HTML or CSS files that needs to be checked. By using this service, it avoids any potential errors that could easily disrupt the websites functionality or design.
SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is probably one of the most important parts of building a website as this is where you need to know how structure content on the website efficiently and correctly in order to make that website compatible with Search Engines, like Google. I have a lot of experience in getting websites to the top of search results.
This has to be one of my favourite designs, one of the first websites I completed for a client. I needed to produce a site from a given web design, which turned out to be very accurate to the design. The coding side isn't great in terms of validation and methods used, however I feel this was a good start to learning how to code The website was for a fashion company called 'BLUP London'. The site isn't fully responsive however as they didn't require the site to be visible on mobile devices, only desktop and laptops.
Another client I was working with was running an event in Italy, which they needed a website to display the events that they were running. They asked for a design which had a 'postage packaging' look to it, so I tried to include different features in the design which would show off this type of design. They were very impressed with the website overall and we have worked on a few other projects together.
This client required a website which would show his loft conversion services which was powered using WordPress, so then he could later manage the website himself. This is one of the first sites I worked on using WordPress for a client, which was a good start in working in this type of platform as I felt WordPress was quite high in demand from clients as they want to later manage their own websites themselves. The client was impressed with the site and the rapid delivery!
This website was for my final year project at University, which was my dissertation. I decided to create a website using WordPress so then I could create a blog type of website, but I also wanted to demonstrate my technical ability by developing a basic theme into something a lot more complex. This basic theme contained contained hardly any design or features, only the feature of posting blogs with a featured image included. I had to strip down this theme and then implement my design, to eventually create HTML-Library.
This website also features Facebook Connect, which lets Facebook users login and comment on the blog posts shown. The site is also responsive for any device, you can clearly see and use everything. The way it's displayed is similar to how a mobile application is shown, which demonstrates my ability in creating websites for mobile devices.
This site was for a client who wanted to expand their minibus hiring business to East London. They required a website which would rank on the first page of Google for relative search queries that people search for. As I studied Digital Marketing in University and created my own SEO Audit, this gave me the experience and knowledge needed to create a website which would be optimised for search engines.
To ensure it was optimised correctly I used the website SEO Site Check up, which identifies all of the focus areas the website needs to be improved on. This allowed me to create a core keyword focus across the website, allowing the website to rank high for relative keywords. Check out search queries like - east london minibus hire - on Google and you will see this website on the first page.
Bedouins Hideaway is a Shisha Lounge located in Croydon, they needed to update their current website so I re-designed what what they had already into this website. This website is one of my old sites that I completed last year, however it was a good starting point for me. Me and the client worked well together and successfully worked on other projects together.
This was a website completed before the first East London Minibuses website, they required a website which would advertise their ability in Airport Transfers. They required only a nice design and a good content layout which would be good enough to interest any potential customers. This was another site completed in WordPress, which was one of later websites done in WordPress as well. I found editing the WordPress theme a lot easier as I had worked with WordPress quite a lot by this time.
This website is for a client that owns a bar in Liverpool. Their current website looks very outdated, so they required a new website which they could manage themselves using WordPress. The client requires features which would allow them to manage any upcoming events for their bar. This will be done by using WordPress plugins and then customising them to suit the clients needs. I am still currently working on this website, but it should be done within the next few weeks.
