A passionate freelancer in Nottingham creating beautifully modern, hand crafted websites.
My journey to becoming a web developer started at the age of 11, when I first bought this domain name (joedaniels.co.uk). I didn’t have a clue what I was doing, and it wasn’t until I was 14 that I began learning how to properly create websites.
Now, at the age of 22, I’ve got around 6 solid years experience in web design & development, with 3 years from freelancing, along with a degree in Computer Science from Newcastle University.
Being in direct contact with my clients means I can provide websites at a similar quality to agencies, without the expensive fees. No sales team. No account executives. No expensive office.
The start of any project involves gaining an understanding of what it is the client is actually after. This includes going over the website’s goals, target audience, key message, competition and so on.
Using the requirements gathered from the first stage I go on to create initial draft designs. A favourite is selected by the client, which is then built upon to progress into a full web design.
After the website is designed, it is turned into a functioning website that can be visited and interacted with. In this stage the website is also thoroughly tested, and is checked for conformity to standards.
