Hello Good people

Came across the Forum, whilst looking for freelence people involved in web developing/design work, in my area. seems like a good site and a possible place to start for my search... let me explain...

I run a small Project management Co. involved in print & related services (everything from fixing Client artwork, through data conversion, personalising and mailing). Mostly the pain in the a** work that other suppliers dont want to get involved in. Our Clients know they can trust us to deliver, weve being doing it for 30 years, so yes youve guessed it, im probably the oldest person on this site (49)

We have been hearing utter horror stories from several Clients when it comes to developing, designing & implementing their web sites...one Client said to me, "Phil why dont you get into web work, that way we know it will work". So that is why Im here, I want to explore the possibility of forging partnerships with people with the right skill set. adding this to our Project management & Client interface, to create a winning formula for the provision of web sites.

If anyone is interested, please get in touch

Hi Phil,

Welcome to Design Forums, thanks for posting an introduction, where abouts in Kent are you based? I'm down in Margate.

Hope you find the forums beneficial :)
Cheers, Greg

Ahh cool not too far away then, I went to UCCA in Maidstone, used to commute back and forth for my course, not a fun drive in the mornings!

So are you looking specifically for web designers to put design concepts together or web developers to take designs provided to working sites? Or both?

Not a fun drive in the evenings either..

Well both really, as what we would like to do is form the front operation and co-ordinate resource in the same way that we do for our traditional projects, these currently involve us using 4 to 5 different suppliers for each project. We know what were doing with print, graphic design & related stuff, but web is new ground for us, so a sharp learning curve is involved.

F1 fan since before the dawn of time, first GP at my local circuit, Brands Hatch, I think it was 78, in the days when it alternated with Silverstone. We thought Silverstone was flat and boring, as we couldnt see anything. We used to park the car near the track and stand on the roof (you cant do that now)
