Background

Summary

I am an ambitious, passionate and driven Web Designer / Developer with extensive experience of the web, graphic design and 3D animation industries. I am very focused on delivering the best customer service I can while consistently streamlining and improving processes to decrease production times. I have 8 years professional experience managing a team as senior web designer.

Nichomedia is a web design and development company based in Leeds, specialising in Joomla CMS websites and customisation. We have won several awards for our websites and successfully launched well over 250 websites either directly for the customer or working on behalf of other design agencies. We have built all kinds of websites over the years from simple brochure sites to complex ecommerce websites with CRM systems.

Nichomedia is also known for graphic design and brand identity creation. We have either created or redesigned logo's for most of our customers and produced marketing and advertising materials to help promote their businesses. Nichomedia also has extensive experience with email marketing and search engine optimisation.

Nicho Media Ltd’s wealth of experience in designing web sites and brand imagery means we can help our clients tackle difficult issues easily. It is critical to understand that often successful design is not always about what you like but more what your customers like or expect. There is no point for example creating an online shopping web site that you really like but no one will buy from because it is too ‘flashy’ or annoying to use. We believe we are successful because we produce designs that our clients love and a website experience their customers can relate to and consequently we have formed lasting relationships with over 100 companies we continue to support to this day.
