Ok, I’m going to be frank…I, Marcelle, sit at my desk for up to 100 hours a week, and even on a Saturday night, working while keeping one eye on XFactor or I’m A Celebrity, I can honestly say that designing websites doesn’t feel like work…I love it! Being creative and aspiring to ‘wow’ every client with a masterpiece is what I strive to achieve – even on simple 3 page websites my passion doesn’t wane. Some clients have quite specific ideas when they come to me, and they know what they want, and I’ll do my very best to create exactly that, while others just wind me up and let me go on it, and give me total artistic freedom. The end result – very happy clients 🙂
My very first website, back in 2002, was for a beauty product that was new to the UK. The software available at the time was Microsoft FrontPage 2000….yes 2000! Trying to input pretty backgrounds, integrating Paypal, designing a shopping basket from scratch – it was all an absolute nightmare and took me nearly 2 months! How things have changed. Now, when I set my sights on a target, I’ve got the skills to be able to do pretty much anything that my clients want on their websites, from integrating videos through to e-commerce websites with over 4,000 products. I finish ALL of my projects on time, and while working up to 18 hours a day, I can do so within 3 or 4 days .
