Why trust my brand with a random girl

I met on the internet?

If you’re going to put your trust in someone to build your website, there’s a good chance you want to know a bit about them, you know, to check they’re not a member of the KKK, and they don’t practise old school blackhat SEO techniques!
Here you are, have a stalk…
Age: 27

Height: 5’5”

Favourite TV programme: Road Wars  / The Island with Bear Grylls

Education history: I studied ‘Business & Marketing Communications’ at Oxford Brookes University, from 2008-2012. I finished with a 2:1

Employment: I’m currently employed by Friday Media Group, as a Marketing Manager. Building websites is a side-job which funds my ASOS habit, (and which I really enjoy)!

A typical weekend: A long, pretty dog walk, a nice egg and bread based brunch, a clear mind, some prosecco

Favourite web design features: I’m a big fan of full-width websites,  with an integrated text header that sits on top of a really sharp photography image.  I’m starting to get more into using gradients and experimenting with bold, parallax imagery too!

Website pet hates: Poor spelling or grammar, low-quality images, obviously stocky images, titles that are boring and uninventive, words for the sake of them, meta-data that’s not optimised. The list could go on…

Favourite homepage: It changes every time I see a new homepage I prefer. But my most recently bookmarked homepage is this one, by 4 Rivers Smokehouse, although it conjures up scary page load speed nightmares with all the imagery of that mouth-watering food!

Favourite font: A long time fav’ of mine is Lato, in thin. Which, naturally, is the font I’ve chosen to use on this website! I also really like Abril Fatface, but it needs the right kind of brand to pull it off.

Least favourite font: I hate fonts where the letters are too close together – I find them so hard to read, and I think it’s super important to put usability over design in this scenario. As well as comic sans, of course!
