Behind Crimson Pixel
My name is Helen Warner, and I am a freelance CIW certified web designer / front-end developer with over 10 years experience of building and creating websites. I have specialised in developing websites using the content management system MODX. It is my preferred platform for many reasons but primarily because it provides me with a blank canvas upon which to build your website.
Ever since the development of the "world wide web" , I have always had an intense fascination and sense of awe at what can be achieved and created on the internet. And how a whole bunch of "code" can be transformed into an amazing web experience. Eventually, whilst working as a Marketing Manager, I became more involved in actually managing a company website, and began to dig further into what really makes it all happen. In order to ensure I had a good foundation upon which to carve out a new career I embarked on the CIW Web Designer course, and finally Crimson Pixel emerged.
Since then I have been building and developing websites with a range of clients for several years and have enjoyed the variety and challenges that each project has provided. My experience includes the use of latest styling and coding skills along with some nice affects. I have also sourced third party platforms such as Checkfront, Bookeo, MailChimp, SendinBlue and ShopWired to provide clients with product specific solutions. Take a look at my portfolio to see just what I can do.
My ethos for creating, developing and designing websites is to build sites that your target audience and customers will find both easy to access and simple to navigate. At Crimson Pixel websites are built to be managed by website owners and support and training is always on hand. Good up to date information will provide a better experience for your customer and keep them coming back time and again to see what is new. Website maintenance should be a relatively straight forward process and available for those who are keen to take complete ownership of their site.
Based in Wallingford, Oxfordshire, Crimson Pixel has been helping small to medium sized businesses, community groups, sports clubs and many others develop their digital space.
In that time, I have also increased by knowledge and skills with Prestashop, and have trained as a Pageflex Studio template developer, offering specialist skills for the web to print market.
