I have over 4 years experience as a full-time web developer for a company called Vydex. You can view their website I created here. During my time here, I developed multiple e-commerce websites for in-house brands, one of which the company recently sold for over £1 million.

I once replaced one of the company’s existing websites with a new bespoke ecommerce website containing custom label design services, sample ordering forms and contact/quotation channels that met private label manufacturing needs. You can view the site here.

I’ve also worked closely with the director of the sports nutrition brand, MSC Nutrition to help transfer the company’s existing site to a new domain and create a brand new bespoke ecommerce website for the company.

When I’m not building websites, I’m still looking at ways to improve the users experience with them. From learning how to create promotional videos and graphics using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe After Effects to creating online web stores using Amazon and eBay store builders, I’m always trying to verse myself in anything website-related.
