Creatively Driven, Technology Obsessed Web Designer
A little bit about me.
Who are you?
Well… I’m a 30 something year old family guy who goes by the name of Mark Bowley living in Surrey, England.
With a slightly strange obsession for web design, WordPress, Photoshop, fonts, browsers, films, a casual need for gaming and a lot of other geeky stuff.
What do you do?
I design and develop websites. I’m a self taught web designer with a decade of learning experience but still always wanting to learn more about design philosophy and explore new coding languages. My latest learning adventure has been learning video game design and development using C# coding.
When I’m not making websites in my spare time, I’m usually exploring the wonders of pixels through Photoshop and catching up on some video gaming. In between all of that, having fun playing with my son and daughter.
How did you get into web design?
I first got into the whole web thing in 2009 when I signed up to a gaming forum called LittleBigLand. After spending so much time on there and helping out in many ways, I was brought on as a moderator. After some time I was then made an administrator and was running many aspects of the site.
The time came where we needed a new site design. We couldn’t pay someone to do it and there wasn’t really anyone else able to do it. I was determined to have a new site design so I began learning how to code. I then started to fall in love with web design and spent over a year learning how to do it all.
It was from then on I found my passion and became obsessed with designing/setting up websites.
Since then I’ve made various websites for myself and for other people.
