Overview

Hi, I’m Alex Kennedy and funny enough I am web designer using WordPress. I’m based in the Scottish Highlands in the beautiful village of Lairg, which is north of Inverness. I create great looking, mobile-friendly sites that please my clients and their visitors.

My background started away from the world of web design in Banking and Investment. I have worked in the Isle of Man and the City of London and held very senior positions including Finance and Operations Director of an online brokerage company. I, therefore, have a good solid understanding of how to target the right market in the right way.

All of this experience is invaluable when planning and designing websites today.

Client relationship management plays a huge part in my business. The number of times that I hear that a designer or developer is not responding, not listening or has just plain disappeared is too often. I know what it means to be relied upon, to deliver a great service and that’s exactly what I do for my clients.

How I became involved in web design was quite simple I needed a website myself. This snowballed as other people asked me to design a website for them and I gained more and more experience and knowledge. My experience has helped me to understand how to be aesthetically pleasing as well as meeting the objective the website was built for. These include increasing the follower base through social media, pop-up promotions, email marketing and various other marketing campaigns

Outside work there is nothing I enjoy more than my dog, cats and hens, developing our Croft and exploring the Highlands of Scotland.

I look forward to working with you.

Thanks for your time.

Work experience

Freelance Web Designer

Self-employed
February, 2015 – Present (over 3 years)

I am the owner of a web design company, where I've had the pleasure of working with some great companies and individuals since 2015.

I specialise in working with either businesses or individuals to bring their ideas/products/hopes and dreams to life through the means of a responsive Wordpress website and helping them to market it through various channels to the general public.

I believe that the client relationship management plays a huge part in my business.

Let's talk and work together.

Projects

SmileyAnswers

My client decided that he wanted to rebrand his business and hence SmileyAnswers was born. The website is to showcase various products to other businesses and how they can be used within their business. I designed a responsive Wordpress website which incorporated videos, pop-up promotions, social media share buttons, follow us buttons, custom contact forms, photo sliders, a chat button and cases studies (with PDF attachments).

Juliette Lowe

Juliette Lowe is an acupuncturist based in the Scottish Highlands. Juliette wanted a very personal website showing the services she can provide. I incorporated a fully integrated blog, social media display, various summaries relating to experience and services, a contact form including maps of the various locations Juliette practices from.

Duncan Wemyss Ltd

Duncan Wemyss Ltd is one of the Scottish Highland's largest tree management companies. They wanted a responsive website to not only highlight the services they can offer but to show the full extent and scale of their operations throughout the Highlands and Islands. I incorporated, various galleries showcasing their work, a contact form, summaries highlighting the experience the company has, the membership of various organisations and what services they can provide.

Woodburn Lodge

Woodburn Lodge is a small but high-quality B&B set in the beautiful surroundings of Altass, Lairg. My brief was to design a responsive Wordpress website showcasing their accommodation to the general public. I incorporated follow us buttons for Facebook and Twitter, I took various photos for the client, a contact form, set up their business on Google+, included a map, an availability calendar for each room which can be updated by the owners.
