Frontend ASP.NET and PHP Web Development

Before my employment at Norfolk Capital I was located in London after graduating from my masters course in Fine-Art Printmaking. After teaching myself Photoshop, to mix computer Photoshop work with my fine-art prints, I taught myself the desktop publishing application QuarkXPress and gained employment at The Guardian Newspaper. This led onto becoming interested in web design.

The Guardian set up WorkThing.com, to move their advertisement to an online platform, I was included with this project from the outset until the project was sold by The Guardian newspaper group. I accepted redundancy and went freelance to gain experience in many aspects of web design and frontend web development.
