Our Experience and Background

Our Web Design Experience

I’ve been designing websites professionally for over 15 years working on many large and small websites for a variety of companies. These days I work closely with my clients creating responsive websites that deliver a clear message, meet their needs and goals and help their business grow.

A Designer’s Story

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.
