My Blog

Hello World!

So I figured it was about time I introduced myself! My name is Paul Dean, I'm a 28 year old web developer and graphic designer from the city of Hereford in the UK. I've just launched my own design studio G-Effect after spending the last 9 years of my life as an in house designer and developer for a company called ML Sports ltd. It was an absolute blast working there and whilst I've made some friends for life, the time was right to move on.

So who am I? I'm a self-confessed workaholic, science and technology geek, a gamer and a petrol-head! I love Go-Karting for fun, my favourite TV show is currently The Walking Dead and my favourite move is The Fifth Element!

I'm looking for new clients, you can help me showcase my work and save BIG!

So I guess the big question is what do I do? The simple answer is a lot of things, I offer a range of different design for print and web services, but without a doubt the main service I provide is bespoke web development.

I don't provide off-the-shelf, "best fit" solutions using software like Wordpress, Joomla or Drupal as I find them to be bloated and difficult to keep up to date when lots of different modifications are used.

Instead I prefer to develop my websites to spec and so I've developed my own Content Management System as a starting point. Its lightweight, fast, easy to manage and is designed to scale to websites both big and small, simple and complex. I've spent the last eight weeks developing and fine tuning this website, which is the first to use my CMS in a live environment and now I'm ready to get cracking on some exciting new projects!

Building websites is something I've done for over 10 years now, both for my day job and also in my spare time. Its has become a huge passion of mine and I feel very fortunate to be able to do something I love for a living and I hope I can help you and your business out in the near future!

As you may have noticed, my portfolio is a little on the light side right now, so I'm looking to meet new clients to help bolster my portfolio and to sweeten the deal a little, I'll be happy to take on the first few projects at a lower than standard rate.

So if your business needs a new website, business card, flyer, catalogue, sign, or anything else that can be designed, please request a quote and I'll do what I can to get back to you as quickly as possible!
