Welcome to the new site!
So I finally got it together and designed myself a new site. I was planning to link to my old portfolio, but aside from it looking a bit naff, it just isn’t me, you know what its like, when you look back at previous designs and cringe? But enough of that, I’ll introduce myself.
My names David Churchill, I’ve been dabbling in web development since I was a padawan. Skip forward a few years to when I left school, I decided I should get some qualifications in what I loved, web design, so got myself onto a course.
After 4 years of education, and many a drunken night out, I needed a job. At first it was a struggle, with a portfolio lacking content, and freelance sites seeming pretty difficult to come by. I ended up working in various other areas, But I always kept up to date with the latest technologies and web development initiatives.
So I eventually got a job at a small privately owned firm, doing what I was born too, website stuff! With the experience from that job, and a few freelance sites under my belt, I moved to to bigger and better things, Cut to now, where I’m a dealer site designer at Auto Trader Digital.
So that’s pretty much my story, its probably only interesting to me, and maybe my mother, but it at least took up some space on this new blog of mine. I promise, the next post will be more focused on web design and development techniques. I might even do something about web standards…
I’ve always felt designing and building with standards was awesome. You see it simplifies and lowers the cost of site production, while delivering sites that are accessible to more people and more types of Internet devices.
But even more so, sites developed along these lines will continue to function correctly as traditional desktop browsers evolve, and as new Internet devices come to the market.
I imagine I’ll post more about this in the future, I may even look at posting some WordPress related stuff. I’ve been working towards coding all my newer sites with WordPress as a foundation.
