As Creative Designer, I make sure Edge of the Web is at the forefront of design and development. I devote a huge amount of my free time to reading, analysing and studying the competition, latest techniques and new technologies. We work in an industry where the demands on the service provider increase constantly and you can't succeed unless you are prepared to regularly re-learn everything you know, and be objective about everything you do.
I particularly enjoy larger projects where I can take my time and think through each aspect of the design, but working at Edge of the Web has also taught me to adapt my design to any budget or time constraint.
