Hi, my name is Paul Atkinson and I am a web developer with a keen interest in small business needs, scalable online solutions and in the web as an interactive tool for communication and marketing.

I truly believe that a website should serve you well - and that a website should never be sold in a box or as a fixed off-the-shelf product. Development, idea generation, original looks and comprehensive support are all integral to the process of creating and maintaining a site and each element of the process should be tailored to your business needs. These ideas dominate the way I approach all of my web development projects.

I am excited by every new project I take on and I look forward to helping invigorate your web presence from the germ of an idea, to the marketing and ongoing development of a service.

With a range of ongoing clients, many who have the backbone of their business dependent on an international online presence, I appreciate the importance and capacity of the internet and how it best can serve you.

If you have any questions at all, make sure you ask me!
