    UK Based Web Developer - Wordpress, PHP, HTML5, MySQL, CSS3

    United Kingdom - Last active: 04/18/2014 - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 10

    Allow me to introduce myself, my name is James Leist and I am a freelance web designer/developer based in Leicester, United Kingdom. Web design is my passion. I truly believe in simplicity within designs; To create beautiful websites using the cutting edge in web standards such as HTML 5, CSS3, jQuery, PHP and WordPress to list a few. I have extensive experience with Wordpress, customising Wordpress themes and developing bespoke themes and plugins. I started to get involved in web design many years ago. The power of web intrigued me to do it delve deeper and learn more. I have been working in web development/design for clients for around seven years. Initially as an additional income source to top up my full time wage. More recently however I decided that my drive and enthusiasm needed to be a aired further so I have taken the leap to go full-time. I enjoy every minute of it. Sure at times it is a challenge but I love working with clients making their visions become reality. There is nothing I enjoy more than producing a site for a client and hearing from them a couple of months later discovering how it is turning their business around and has become a valuable asset to the company transforming their future by introducing them to a whole new client base. I am a huge fan of technology and in particular products based on Apple platforms. My introduction to the Mac transform the way I think about design ethics and has embedded a completely new design ethos within me that now drives a lot of the things that I do. I also enjoy blogging and it is always been my aim to start a technology blog and have included a blog into my new website so that I can express my love for technology and spread my knowledge. I look forward to hearing from you and find out how I may assist you with your project. However big or small it will be a delight to work with you and help place your company on the Internet map. Looking forward to working with you, James
