Daniel is our Senior Front End Web Developer at design4dentists and has over 20 years experience creating digital marketing tools for all kinds of businesses. After studying graphic design and advertising in college, Daniel is self taught in HTML and has developed his skills in many other coded languages as well as CMS platforms such as WordPress.
Daniel started his career over 20 years ago where he studied graphic design & advertising for 5 years. He was then given the opportunity to join a small design studio in West London as an apprentice graphic designer where most of his time was dedicated towards creating adverts for businesses in local magazines and newspapers. He was also involved in designing leaflets and brochures for SME’s.
The design studio soon merged with a large IT distribution company based in Kingston, Surrey and Daniel was promoted to a higher creative position. Learning new software applications he strived to improve his design skills and was soon creating adverts for high profile brands such as HP, Sony, Acer and other large IT suppliers.
In 1998 Daniel was asked to design and build a website for his employer. This was his first taste of website design and coding and he has not looked back since.
"A lot has changed since then but that’s one of the main things I like about website design, it’s constantly evolving so I have to persistently improve my skills, learn new coded techniques and be on the look out for new trends. Even now after 20 years I still get excited when I have accomplished something new and ground breaking."
Having gained vital experience in the world of websites, Daniel quickly progressed working for a bigger IT company in the City of London with over 400 employees. He was tasked with building and maintaining their ecommerce website but also continued designing adverts and brochures for industry leading IT manufacturers. After 7 years service Daniel decided that he wanted to create websites for a broader range of industry sectors and decided that a design agency would be the best option to further his career.
Daniel then joined Origin 1 (UK) Ltd, the home of design4dentists in Watford, Hertfordshire. Here Daniel has been able to expand his abilities and knowledge in all areas of design, advertising and marketing. 11 years on and he still goes to work with smile on his face, loving every aspect of his job.
Unlike many other web producers, Daniel has been hand coding HTML websites from the very start of his online digital marketing career. He has witnessed many evolutional changes in the way websites are developed, from tables to stylesheets, desktop to mobile responsive sites and in more recent times, the emergence of Content Management Systems (CMS) such as WordPress which have become very popular.
Although the preference is always to code a website from scratch as this enables websites to be totally bespoke, efficient and flexible, Daniel has spent valuable time training himself to keep up to date with all the latest online marketing tools like WordPress including it’s latest features and plugins.
Daniel has built in excess of 100 websites during his time at design4dentists and Origin 1 and has no intention of stopping any time soon.
As well as designing and building websites, his daily role also includes setting up hosting and emails accounts for clients, purchasing and transferring domains and maintaining websites to ensure they are all working efficiently.
Daniel works closely with a team of experienced graphic design and marketing experts and a fantastic SEO team. This ensures that our client websites not only look great when they go live but they also perform to their maximum capacity giving our clients the best possible outcome.
