Hello, my name is Marc Inglis and I am a freelance web designer and web developer living in Edinburgh. I have recently graduated from Edinburgh Napier University with a Bachelor's Degree in Web Design and Development and have worked a full-stack internship. During this time I have diversified my portfolio to touch on different elements of the web. This includes creating e-commerce websites, blogs, content management systems as well as maintaining and developing WordPress sites.
Good web design is crucial to not only nailing your brand, but also engaging customers. If a website takes longer than a few seconds to load, users will simply go elsewhere. This is one of the main reasons I stay up to date with current web design trends and tools to not only make high performing platforms but also to look sleek and modern.
I use Photoshop for editing images and create storyboards, Illustrator to create icons and graphics, CSS to style the page to your needs and am happy to create animations if desired.
One advantage of recently graduating University is being up to date with current technologies and frameworks being used all over the web. My personal preference is Python Flask which can make scalable webapps suitable to any needs.
I have also worked with WordPress, Joomla and Squarespace and understand that there is a market here. While these tools are marketed as a DIY of Web Dev, I can really take these systems and combine them with my programming skills to take them to the next level.
Owning a web site can really help boost a small company. Web presence is massive in today's world as it can help your business reach out and connect with new groups of people that you would of otherwise not had an opportunity to interact with.
This is where I come in! I will talk to you about what you need and break down the solution into tangible ideas, solving your web problems without overloading you with tech jargon.
