Hey there, I’m Pat (you probably guessed that) a Sunshine Coast based web designer and developer specialising in websites for small business. I love the challenge of bringing creative, technical and strategic requirements together and producing something focused, balanced and effective.
My experience in the digital world is a mixed bag of agency and in-house work. Agency work has exposed me to loads of different business models, strategies, aesthetics, and audiences and always provided new challenges. My in-house work has let me dive deeper into what running an online business requires, from a technical point of view, but also from a strategic marketing point of view. You can’t help but learn a few thing when you are working in-house for an active, dedicated, online business, attracting millions of website visitors every year with a social media following of over 2 million!
Freelancing: the next frontier
I’ve come to a point where I want to be able to put all the things I have learned and will learn into practice without constraints. I’m more interested in building relationships than doing ‘tick and flick’ kind work (and let’s be honest, I have bills to pay).
Four things you should know up front
- I’m a freelancer, I’m not going to pretend to be a “design agency”. It’s just me! I’m happy to work remotely or from your office if needed.
- All work will be completed by me, but if you require something really specialised, I may recruit help from my network, but you will be fully informed.
- I try to work on projects that align with my social values, so If I don’t think I’m the right fit for your project, I will let you know.
- I’m not going to be your cheapest quote. I want to create something of true value for your company using all the skills I've acquired.
