My name is Russ Clow and I'm a freelance website designer. I'm also an art lover. I've worked on digital campaigns for a number of companies and designed websites for international brands. My digital web designing career started almost 10 years ago and it has developed into where I've been a lead-designer working for international businesses like Microsoft, Ticketmaster, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Forbes, Lenovo and the Eurovision Song Contest. I've also designed websites for small businesses, start-ups and individuals.

I also do front end development, ensuring that I have a full grasp of the website design down to the coding level. My services include freelance website design, re-design, album artwork and web consulting. I create unique, beautiful and functional websites for small businesses. 

My website design services can be set up in a way so that it is guided by the client. Other services I provide as a freelance web designer includes responsive web development, newsletter design and social media services. My passion for design began over 10 years ago when I built my first webpage using Dreamweaver. Since then I've worked full-time for a number of international companies, local companies and I am currently a full-time freelancer. I have also designed and sold my fonts, website themes and icon sets. So if you are a lively small business who does things a little bit differently and you are looking for graphic and web design services, then I'm your perfect match. 

My objectives as a freelance web designer are working in a challenging, creative environment where I can hone my design skills and grow professionally. I am a passionate self-taught graphic designer who is interested in working with like-minded people or groups in a creative environment. My experience includes client work, solo projects and being part of a 100 employee workforce. I have operated within very tight timelines in various work conditions; in an office setting, on event sites and in printing warehouses. 

I have a great understanding of the printing procedure while having established rapports with printers that I’ve collaborated with on many occasions. I enjoy working with co-workers and enjoy meeting new people in every potential work settings. I continually welcome brand new customers and expect to develop a long-lasting relationship with my clients by delivering the best possible services to them. 

All through my professional career, I have consistently tried to make sure that the passion and zeal for my work shine through. In spite of my success as an independent freelance website designer, I have discovered it is via a continually focused effort I have reached my greatest potential. 

I have discovered that having a setup to question and cultivate ideas produces greater creativity - even though recognizing creative inspiration doesn’t happen without its challenges! Time management and operating within tight timelines are crucial in any sector, however, the basis and biggest concerns of design are in communication. In my opinion, great communication is important to success in every aspect of life. 

In everything that I do professionally, I have embraced these obstacles and used them to power my desire and keep up my personal high standards.
