Nothing is impossible on the internet…
Having worked on some truly bespoke projects I understand that literally nothing is impossible to create and it just needs some sideways thinking.
Passion for the web
I love what I do. It’s an ever-changing landscape of innovation and there is always something new to learn. There are literally not enough hours in the day to learn all this stuff.
Every project I embark on for a client involves adding something new to the mix, whether that is applying some knowledge I have garnered over time or researching and implementing something new. Each project is different, has it’s own unique challenges and involves it’s own blend of sideways thinking.
The extra mile
Most of my clients are local businesses. I’ve done some high profile websites for the like of the NHS and Harvard International, but my bread and butter is local work and I like that. I’m also a relatively new business trying to establish myself. Most of the challenges you are coming up against I have gone through already. Knowledge is my asset and I will always impart this knowledge to you. I want you and your business to succeed as well. If there is something wrong or something that could be done better, I will tell you.
I have always had an interest in computing from an early age when our Dad brought home a Sinclair ZX81. Then a C-64, Amiga 500 & 1200. I have a technical background and with a product design degree from Colchester Institute I spent 3 years as a CAD Draughtsman/Contract Engineer in heavy manufacturing industries during the mid to late 1990s.
Deciding on a change of direction I built my first website in 1999 and soon gained employment in a niche market magazine publisher building their websites to drive online magazine subscriptions. Technologies included PHP/MySQL, payment gateway integration and forums.
Due to relocation in 2005, I changed career to IT working for a boutique law firm managing all aspects of their IT and websites. In 2009 I started Tring Web Design with a desire to get back to my roots of building websites. You can find me inhabiting Linkedin and Twitter as well as my own blog.
