Our Web Design Story

An Experienced Web Designer

Hello. I’m Gord Davis from Davis Designs. I have over 35 years combined experience in Web Design and Graphic Design.

In 1980 I began my design career in print design working in numerous Ad Agencies and Design Studios in the GTA. When the digital revolution started in 1988 I moved into to desktop publishing and CD-ROM design. As the Internet grew in the mid-nineties I expanded into Web Design.

My experience in web design and graphic design over the years has given me a strong foundation helping to understand what is needed for a successful web site. What works and what doesn’t. This is what I bring to the table with every project.

My Work Philosophy

I genuinely care about the clients I work with as well as their business and future success. The best way to show this is with excellence in client service and communication.

I also love what I do which allows me to provide the best possible service to my clients.

A Designer’s Story

Beginning in Print Design and then entering into the exciting, new world of Web Design.

My story begins in 1981 in Toronto.

Working at a wooden drawing table in Ad Agencies and Design Studios preparing print graphics are where things started for me. As a print designer and paste-up artist, markers, layout pads, x-acto knives, wax and stat cameras were the tools of the trade.

By 1988 things began to change. The art board was replaced with a computer as I started working in desktop publishing. There was plenty to learn and I found that preparing my print designs on a computer was much more efficient; and fun. No more need for stat cameras, wax and x-acto blades.

The digital age had arrived in my industry.

One day a friend showed me something called a web browser on his computer. He also introduced me to the internet, websites and search engines; a special type of website.

Browsing to a search engine he said, “Look at this, you can ask it anything you want and get an answer back.”

“Really?” I replied.

“You can also find any website you want from here,” he told me.

“Wow, how many websites are there?” I asked.

He continued to show me more about websites and how they worked. I was all very interesting to me, so in the following weeks and months I learnt all I could about websites.

Websites and the internet quickly grew in popularity and by the mid-nineties I was in a new job designing, you guessed it, websites!

It was exciting. Web design was changing and evolving so fast. Every business wanted a website. I was a very busy time for me working on website after website.

In 2001 things had changed once more and I found myself on my own. Working under the name of ‘Davis Designs’, I began freelancing on a number of website projects, which I was lucky to get through a few good business connections. I was also creating websites for a number of small businesses around my area.

Websites have continued to evolve and today I continue to help businesses with their websites. My clients are enjoying the many benefits of the latest website features I offer such as, responsive web design, editable content, and many more.

It has been a fun adventure so far and I’m interested to see where website technology will lead to next.
