My current role of Marketing Director at Foliages Artificial Trees & Plants in Dubai, sees me learning new skills on a daily basis. Fundamentally, I develop and nurture the Foliages brand using my 12 years experience in graphic/web design, local search engine optimisation and brand marketing. Foliages now have a portfolio of blue chip companies, including Dolce & Gabbana, Ramada Hotels, Jumeirah Group and Gems Wellington School.
Before moving to Dubai, I owned a small freelance web design company, serving clients throughout the North East of England and London. This allowed me to expand my skill set and experience; working with clients at the conception stage through to progressing with the ideas and transforming them into finished websites brands.
As a front-end web developer, graphic designer and marketer, my skill set includes valid XHTML/CSS responsive markup, HTML5, use of jQuery functions, WordPress theme development, ecommerce, Adobe Creative Suite CS6 including extensive knowledge of Photoshop and InDesign, local search engine optimisation and web marketing.
