About Me

Hi. I'm Vincent and I work with digital media.  My down to earth approach to design leads to good relationships with my clients. Over the years, I have learnt to keep the techno babble down to a minimum when suggesting creative solutions to whatever projects and challenges are thrown at me. I have been described as 'a media guru' with a wide range of skills and experience from performance art to e-commerce.

Testimonials

"Vincent has maintained a professionalism throughout building my site. I have the greatest confidence in his technical abilities. He clearly explains any details, avoiding techno babble. I thoroughly recommend working with such a creative individual and as testament I continue to do so."

Tim Godwin - timgodwinphotography.co.uk

I commissioned Vincent to set up e-newsletters for my gallery. He created the most amazing template which matched my web site profile perfectly. He displayed the patience of a saint in teaching me how to use the software, which has saved me thousands of pounds in printers bills. Vincent knows instinctively what you want and just gets on and does it, such a rare quality these days.

Sharon Davidson - davidson emails

Vince was professional and simplified the process of building my site. He followed through with all the directives in a measured way and stuck to my brief without feeling the need to impose his own ideas, where it wasn`t necessary. Thank you so much – I love it and would like to recommend him for website construction and management.

Tim is a freelance photographer specialising in Devonshire landscapes and yacht photography. Tim asked me to build a new website from scratch. He wanted a new gallery with paypal purchase options and integration into flickr. For Tim's site, flickr is used as the storage and organisation of his photos, an interface he already knew how to use.

Web Development

The theatre asked me to bring their company up to date digitally. They wanted to modernise with a particular focus on social media. I updated the existing site by implementing a social sharing bar. It dynamically links to the theatres social network pages. It is important to maintain a good social appearance so I spearheaded an action plan to continually update the barbicans social presence with images, comments and videos. A routine was established, the Theatre continues to be very active online and has seen an increase in ticket sales as a result.

As part of a mass scale theatre and dance project, the largest Plymouth has ever seen, I was asked to be responsible for the online media and marketing. This included an in depth social media strategy, that I devised and led a team of six young interns to create a buzz about the project and encourage sales to final performances.

The Project was addressing the issues of migration, how it affects the community and individual lives. Eight different artistic organisations worked together during the research, design and productions stages of the project.

Sylvie approached me to build her a simple brochureware (simple home business) website to showcase here talents as a portrait painter. She wanted an interactive gallery and an about section all on a tight budget. For Sylvie the colour scheme of the site was important, she wanted soft pastel colours that allowed the pictures to 'pop' out of the screen.
