Welcome to MarkV Design

Well I’ve finally got my bum into gear and got my site on-line, it’s only taken me 6 months but here we finally are. I’ve been a front end web designer full time now for about 9 months now. I’ve been fiddling with web design for a number of years but it wasn’t until recently that I decided to take things more seriously.

So what do you know?

I’ve focused my studies on HTML5 and CSS3 and have also taken my first steps into Responsive Web Design (RWD) with this site. I’ve had some great coaching from CSS guru Chris Coyier (check him out here at CSS-Tricks) and have been busy taking classes and earning badges at Treehouse. You can take a look at my Treehouse profile here and as you can see I’ve been pretty busy getting up to speed with all things web. I’ve taken a particular interest in WordPress (which this site is running on) and have made this custom theme to suit. I really like WordPress for the following reasons:

  • Ease of set up and use
  • The awesome documentation
  • The WordPress community
  • The huge power it can provide even entry-level designers/developers

These are just a couple of factors that I love about WordPress but I know I’ve only touched the tip of the ice with my journey and it’s only a matter of time before I become more proficient and confident with such a fantastic tool

Where to from here

Well now I’m on-line, I’d love to hear from you about your interesting design projects, so please feel free to drop me a line. I’m also in the process of adding some more content to the site so stay tuned for some portfolio stuff soon.
