I’m David, a freelance, front-end web developer & designer. I love what I do.
Started as a Side Hustle
My name is David Jenner, I am 31 years old and I was born and raised on Lower Parkstone, Poole in Dorset. I lived in Surrey and Hampshire when I studied at the University of Creative Arts at Farnham, Surrey. This is where I studied Graphic Design, specialising in brand communication. I chose to study branding because once you understand the brand you understand everything else.
Since then I have worked in different types of jobs, I’ve travelled a lot, this has given me a broader view of the world. I’ve been to Europe countless times, several countries in Asia, a couple of countries in Africa as well as North and South America.
For most of my career, I have worked in customer support jobs around Bournemouth and Poole. However, for many years I have also had a passion for website design and helping small businesses. I’ve always been interested in creating something that can be shared around the world.
Since then I have been teaching myself how to make websites in my spare time for over 10 years now. I taught myself using Codecademy and YouTube Tutorials. I’ve also used Linkedin Learning to learn about Search Engine Optimisation, so websites can be found on Google. This was mainly for hobby and did make a few small websites for companies in London.
I started this web design company in 2019 after working in customer service roles in Bournemouth. I worked long hours from my home in Westbourne, Bournemouth to get it started. It’s been a lot of work and I’ve lot a since then about business and making sales. I now live Westbourne with my girlfriend and daughter born while starting my business up. It’s been a challenge, especially while on Lockdown. It’s nice to see that working from home has gained more recognition since the pandemic.
The business has grown, with lots of happy clients in Bournemouth and across the UK. It’s about making websites, yes, but it’s also so much more at the same time. I think about how the internet can be a great tool to bring out the best in your business. Websites now are more than just boring pages on a desktop and I understand that.
All websites are designed to load fast and work great across desktop and mobile. Every project I build is a mobile responsive website. This way it will be served in the best possible way to your audience. Every website is built using a content management platform called WordPress. This means it uses modern code, it’s SEO friendly and easy for you to edit!
I work with small to medium-size businesses in the UK where I offer a personal service. This way it’s easier to talk to you as many times as required to understand what you want from your website. I don’t outsource my web projects or SEO and take care of every element of the design and build process. This ensures that perfecting your new website is as stress-free as possible. If there is something outside my scope I will let you know though.
I am available to work on new projects at the moment if you would like to discuss this with me, then please do contact me. I will be happy to understand what you are looking for in more details. I am also available for work with agencies across Bournemouth and Poole, please get in touch for my day rate.
