A personal welcome
Welcome, I'm Will. I'm 24 and from the Midlands. Prior to enrolling at MMU I spent several years working as a self-employed web developer, designing and building static websites, email marketing campaigns, blogs, eCommerce sites and other database-driven websites for several companies. Examples of my work include the NHS MCRN Portfolio Database, templates for Evolution eCommerce, TalkWebSolutions (now Cobb Digital), XLN Telecom, iNovaLive, 4rFuture, Zagabria Medical, and many others.
I have an interest in web design, web development and marketing, and I enjoy problem solving and creativity. After leaving MMU I hope to find a job that challenges my problem solving and creativity skills, whilst including my interests in web design and marketing. My opinion is that customer facing websites should be under the control and leadership of a marketing department; much in the same way that marketers tend to control printed materials - such as brochures, posters, leaflets, letters to customers - so too should they have control over the design, layout and functionality of the website. I see the combination of marketing and web design skills as an opportunity to differentiate myself, to add real value to a company by improving online marketing activities.
