I’ve been working professionally making websites full-time since mid-2007. From 2003 – 2007 I studied and graduated from the University of Ulster, Belfast with a Bachelor of Science Hons in Interactive Multimedia Design.
In 2008 I completed the Invest Northern Ireland start a business programme for my website design business. Outside of work I enjoy karate and I’m working on achieving a black belt.
At East Tyrone College, Dungannon 2001 – 2003 I did A Levels: Advanced Information Communication Technology, Art and Design. I first learned to build websites over 10 years ago for IT A Levels at South West College in Dungannon.
“Martin quickly developed a very intuitive understanding of what I wanted from the website design, from a very vague brief I gave him. He also pushed me further on, bring a lot of invaluable ideas and concepts that I would never have thought of. He made the whole design and specification appear very straightforward, and importantly, didn’t blind me with jargon. This is the mark of a true professional, and a rare skill to possess! I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.”
“Martin is a strong, dedicated and creative designer always ready to put all his energy and stamina to get the job done. Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Good Value.” – June 19, 2010
“We have worked with Martin for two website projects so far, each time he has delivered and we have been pleased. We hope to work with Martin again in the near future.”
“Martin is a good listener and takes the time to understand the client. His background research means that he can offer useful insights and ideas to the project. He makes changes willingly and the end result is always a professional site optimised for maximum potential.”
“Our website is really easy to use, customer feedback has been great and it is helping us win new work.”
