Who We Are

And How We Got Here

So Many Hats

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.

Perfect Storm

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.

Storyteller

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.

Things Have Changed

I've grown up a little. Lost all the hair, only wear a tie to keep my trousers up, and now live in truly technicolour world. Yet I've come full circle. Learning is still an adventure of discovery. The tiniest of details engage me as I continue to simplify the complex to make it understood. I have so much skill, knowledge, experience and warmth to share, I can barely contain myself. So if you're looking for real, and simple, and someone you can trust and depend on, here I am.
