Paul Squire

Freelance web designer

I am a freelance web designer based in Muswell Hill, North London. I'd like to think of myself as a friendly, easy going creative type, who can work well with all kinds of clients. I got into web designing through working with digital imagery and design in the music sector a few years back now. In fact I first started working with Adobe's Photoshop way back in the 90's when it was in it's infancy and designing websites using Dreamweaver naturally developed from there.

As the technology develops, so do the skills needed in creating effecticve web design and I like to keep my finger on the pulse of this quick moving environment. These days I like to use CSS, jQuery and custom graphics to create the best web designs I can. You need a healthy dose of technical expertise as well as visual flair, to create effective web designs and I hope to meet both of these objectives with every project.

Some websites can be quickly designed using a css architecture and framework, others can be designed in photoshop to get that completely bespoke look, and then developed into the html for the website itself. I like to develop custom websites using an integrated content management system, allowing the client to directly update the website themselves. That way the design is completely unique and the client has an easy online editor to make those vital updates and changes to the content itself.

Another option is Wordpress, which was originally a blogging platform and is now used for millions of websites across the globe. Wordpress uses themes for the style, look and content management and can be hosted on your own domain name. I offer theme customisation, installation and set up.
