Freelance Web Designer & Developer - About Michael Edwards
I am a freelance web designer with over twenty years experience in web design and development, and over twenty four years experience in graphic design. I was trained at art school for 4 years in Graphic Design and hold both a National and Higher National Diploma in that field.
My freelance web design work started in 1994 where I began creating sites for freelance designers and small businesses.
The vast experience I have in web design work both full-time and as a freelance web designer means I can now produce future-proof, search-engine friendly websites using the most up-to-date techniques.
Despite being highly sought after by new media studios and agencies, I have decided to stay as a freelance web designer and enjoy the creative freedom this gives me, as well as being able to work with new media agencies on a self employed basis.
I am married with one son who is 15 years old. Outside of work I am a cub scout leader, and I also run a gaming club in the local area
