Start here Step into the world of Darren Summers, a young and energetic web designer near Edinburgh, Scotland. It is a strange world full of letters like html, css, php and seo. It is also an exciting world where websites come to life and party.
To start things off I would like to say Hi! My name is Darren Summers I live in a small village around 30 miles from Edinburgh. I love to design websites and graphics and if I could do them for free I would but I cant so sorry you are out of luck. So now that the money situation is cleared up I can move on and tell you a little bit more about myself. As a buzzing young web designer I am fairly good at what I do in fact I am really good! I keep on top of the game by constantly learning new techniques and believe me nearly everyday I find something new and improved to web design. The web design industry changes almost everyday and if you let things fly by you well you just suddenly become rubbish at it! It all comes down to knowing the horrible code side to websites, learning the ugly looking language that it speaks and also keeping up to date with all the latest techniques ensures we are constantly learning. So like I say we cant let it fly by (like the cool blue circles you can see below yes they are moving when you scroll).
When it comes to web design all I can say is that you can count on me to work closely with you to meet your requirements. I am fully committed to every client and respect their requests. So if you are looking for a web designer that is going to give you what you want, then that's me! Although I stay outside of buzzing Edinburgh in my wee village I am still one of the best in Scotland. Website design is something that can be done completely remotely. It can actually be a rare occurrence meeting clients but If you prefer to meet I have no problem jumping in the car and drinking a cuppa only if its good coffee mind you !
Branding and Logo design is one of the most important parts of your business. You want to have a logo that is recognisable in your profession and is easily recognised throughout all media types from business cards to sign writing and most importantly online. I am happy to work with you on this to ensure that your Logo is what you require and to keep in line with your website colours taking the much needed time to get these right as nobody is interested in a plain boring logo. Would you be ? I know I wouldn't be but I am a real fussy bugger.
The number of online sites taking paid advertising is huge and growing. But you need professional advice and guidance to determine which are the effective sites and which are the poor relations, which are going up and which are going down. You need someone to be able to negotiate good rates for you. You need someone who understands the very different requirements for online copy-writing and implements it on your behalf. Paying to be at the top Google works correctly but you must have a website that is ready to receive Organic hits or you will see a sudden decrease in visitors to your website.
I was approached by the Director of Blockon Construction who where in need of a professional website to expand with their growing company. The aim of the design was to be simple and clean, taking all visitors into consideration.
I installed a live testimonial system to allow past and future customers to leave feedback for other potential customers to see.
I was approached via Facebook by Windy Wilson, The Weather Guru of the UK. After having a sufficient amount of fans on his Facebook page, he decided to start a business directory that would also integrate his Facebook updates throughout the website. We used the popular WordPress CMS for ease of future updates.
We are currently in talks of creating a mobile App for both IOS and Android.
I received a call from a client requesting for me to create a young and attractive looking website that will compliment her business.
This project required a fully responsive solution along with brand development and digital media.
Joanne has had many compliments regarding her website and we will continue to develop the site.
I was approached by Alan and Claire of Sugar & Spice located in Auchterarder to come up with a more modern and professional look to there website. They were due to have T.V spot soon and they were expecting a jump in visitors to their website and it had to look good !
Wow this is such a broad topic to get into a few sentences ! but all I can say is that this is by far the most important aspect of every website that is looking to make an impact in search results. Whenever you enter a query in a search engine and hit 'enter' you get a list of web results that contain that query. People using Search Engines will in nearly all cases click on the results nearer the top as these results are the first to appear. If you have ever wondered why they are on page 1 and your website is not it is simply because they have invested time and money into getting this right.
As I am sure you are aware (hopefully) search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing are not like humans. Humans are driven mostly by visual senses such as oh that is pretty! or I love they colours! Search engines are driven with text and structure and getting this right is extremely important to any business who wants to be found.
So now you know that I know what I am talking about as I assume you used either "web design Scotland or "web design Edinburgh" in Google and found me! so let me get you ranked better in Google and in return boost your visibility on the web!
Darren is reliable and quick and all for a fair price.
Darren was great at working with us he got the project finished in time and at a great price.
