Hello. My name’s James, I’m a freelance designer and I make websites. Amongst other things. In fact, loads of other things. I just didn’t want to seem too full on straight away. Imagine killing that sentiment within four sentences. Anyway, you’ve probably seen evidence of that already, so let’s not dwell on it. I suppose this is the point in proceedings where I’m supposed to bawl on about how amazing I am, possibly even pretending that I’m a whole bank of talented, streetwise internet prodigies that can solve any and all of your media quandries just by looking at it / them. ‘We’ do this and ‘we’ do that and what have you. But I’m not that. I’m just a man trying to make a difference. I’m not really even that, to be fair. And I’m probably a bit old to be considered a prodigy anyway.
So this is going well. I hate all that techspeak promise-the-moon-on-a-stick-and-leave you-for-dead goonery. If you like the stuff you need done doing quick and cheap, then I’m all over that. Ok, that sounds bad. I probably should’ve gone with ‘I’m the comparatively inexpensive alternative!’, but here we are. Let’s have an interval. I think it’s probably a good time for a picture, just to break things up a bit. Some technology – awesome websites on devices reflected on a white background or some such. I’ll see what I can find. Let’s go with this…
Ok, that’s fine. It’s not weird. Shut up. You’re weird for thinking it’s weird. Don’t worry about it. I said I wanted to break things up a little and it certainly delivered. Let’s move on, then. Oh yeah, personal stuff. Personal stuff to show how down to earth I am. I like tea and staying up late. I don’t care for Mondays. Absolutely nailed it. I hope that wasn’t too leftfield for you. I’d hate to lose your business by momentarily demonstrating a personailty trait or whatever.
Ultimately, I don’t really need your business through here anyway, really. I count myself hideously lucky to have earned a living (thus far) through word of mouth; ‘I-know-a-bloke-who-can-do-that’ing my way through central London (or wherever) like some kind of invisible design virus. Again, that doesn’t sound great, does it? Ah well.
To summarise: I never really needed an ‘about’ section in the first place. It’s essentially ‘man does thing’. I’m alright at it but I’ve been doing it for absolutely ages, so you’d expect that. Honestly. And you can see all of that up there.
Probably end this now. I appreciate you having got this far, I really do.
