Professional Web Designers wear many hats because building a productive, profitable and professional website requires a range of skills each of which is a profession in itself. So it’s little wonder we end up with multiple personalities and start referring to ourselves as ‘we’.
Long story short?
My name’s Marten Claridge and I’m a One Man Studio.
What sets me apart as a professional Web Developer is that I’ve travelled a unique path to get here, and it’s only now that the sum of my pasts is paying dividends. I’m now a perfect storm of all the skills, understanding, knowledge and experience required of a One Man Studio and as such am the perfect fit for local businesses who need a cost-effective yet high-value solution for all their online demands.
Smart By Design
As a Graphic and Digital Designer I have a natural understanding of how to use the elements and principles of brand and design to weave a compelling visual story that flows effortlessly from page to website page.
As a Copywriter and Author I know how to research, structure, plot and write engaging stories that sell products and services. I know all about Unique Value and Selling Propositions and how to create dramatic tensions that can only be relieved by cathartic calls-to-action. Words are my weapons and I wield them with purposeful precision to make my clients’ businesses stand out from their cliché-ridden competitors.
Nope. Not Us.
We’re not an agency. In fact we’re human. We’re a small business ourselves so we live in the real world and speak your language. We’re not very trendy and we don’t charge agency prices, but we do all the important stuff agencies do, and a lot of the stuff they’re too busy trending to do. If that's the kind of personal and personable service you're looking for, what've you got to lose?
