Hi, I'm Fabrizio Van Marciano. I'm a freelance web designer, front-end web developer, graphic designer, and content creator at FVM. More importantly, I'm a fun-loving proud father of two amazing children, and a devoted husband.
I currently live and work in North Devon, in the South West of England, the UK.
I started my online venture back in 2006. Not as a web designer, but as an artist creating and selling artwork online.
As a self-representing artist, one of the things that frustrated me the most was the lack of tools or resources available for visual artists.
The internet landscape was a lot different back in 2006. Website building tools were not in abundant as they are today. I decided to invest all my spare time learning how to write code and build a website for myself.
I'm proud to say that I'm a self-taught web developer, and everything that I know has been obtained through reading books, watching videos, taking online web developer courses, collaborating with other designers and developers, and of course, through my experience working with clients and building up my portfolio. My first taste in website design came in 2012 when I helped a few friends out with their websites. But, it was in 2014 that I began presenting my website design services professionally and landed my first paying client.
I am a HubSpot Academy Certified Growth-Driven Designer and Front-End Developer. I have extensive knowledge and experience with a variety of tools and technologies. They include:
The thing that I love the most about being a self-taught designer and web developer is that I get to learn something new every day.
When I'm not creating websites, I love to travel with my family to my favorite place on earth, the Canary Islands
. Over the years I've had the opportunity to work with clients based in Gran Canaria
My services are available to businesses and individuals in the Canary Islands
I'm also a content creator
and manage a growing YouTube channel
where I love to share website building tips and tutorials, as well as behind the scenes look into my life as a designer, developer, traveler, and family man.
I enjoy bodyboarding, running, and practicing Karate to help keep both my body and mind fit and healthy.
