About Simon Day

I enjoy life… and designing!

Who is Simon Day?

I am avid Web Designer but I'm also a very active Social Media user.

In September 2016 I won a Social Media Award for "The best use of Twitter" at the #THAwards, presented to me by Torbay MP Kevin Foster...

Social Media award winner.

I'm passionate about all things web and I strive to keep up-to-date with all the latest techniques and methodologies. I'm an avid Coffee and Red Bull drinker so I guess I'm also a stereotypical web designer:)

I'm also someone who listens to a client, I mean I really listens to them. Many clients know what they need but don't fully understand how that should be presented on a web page.

You are paying me more than Uncle Bob's 14 year old Nephew because he doesn't have 20 years experience. He doesn't understand journey flows, user experience, usability testing and where to correctly position which part for maximum sales.

This knowledge took years to master

I started coding back in 1997 when there were no books, websites or much else to help understand how web pages were built. In 1999 I moved to CSS for styling and I've been using it ever since. As each new browser came out I learnt the bugs and knew how to prevent them or bypass them.

I have spent most of the last ten years contracting around the Country. I didn't have a single contract which lasted less than two years so the companies I worked for were confident in my skills. Most of those projects had multi-million pound budgets and I coded the front-end for them all. You will be getting a highly experienced front-end designer/developer working on your project!

Simon in Brixham, Devon.

Hobbies

Now I'm back in Torquay, Devon and I'm spending more quality time with my Daughters. I really enjoy fishing and you'll often see me updating the Torbay Fishing website or going out fishing with them.

If you need any website or social media work I really do have all the skills you're looking for!

The most unusual place I've built a website is at 35,000 feet.

My favourite saying is "Be the change you wish to see in the World".

I enjoy the freedom of being follicly challenged :)

I am a caffeine junky. Coffee and Red Bull are my drinks of choice.

I'm a co-host on the #TorbayHour Radio show on Riviera FM.

Sir Trevor Brooking used to help at my Dads business during the 1970's.

Don't take my word for it…

Cleaning Concerns

When I first met Simon he came across, relaxed, approachable but very informative and helpful. His knowledge and advise concerning the design and format of my Web site was first rate. I am very pleased with the outcome and his after care support is great for someone like me that is not to computer minded. Would not hesitate to recommend Simon for your web design, setup and after care support.
