Hi, I'm Fabrizio Van Marciano. I'm a web designer, front-end developer, graphic designer, and videographer at FVM. I'm also a fun-loving proud father of two amazing kids, and a devoted husband.
I currently live and work in North Devon, in the South West of England, the UK. I'm also the founder of FVM.
I started my online journey far back in 2006. Not as a web designer, but as an artist creating and selling original paintings online.
As a self-representing artist, one of the things that frustrated me was the lack of any tools or resources available for visual artists.
You see, the world wide web was a lot different back in 2006. Website building tools were not in abundance as they are today. I decided to invest all my spare time learning how to code and build a website for myself.
Through reading many books and enrolling in various online courses, I built a small private portfolio of design projects. I spent many hours watching tutorial videos and speaking to other freelance designers. I taught myself to become a designer and a front-end developer.
My first experiences came from creating websites for friends and family at the start of 2012. But, it was in 2014 that I began providing website design services on a semi-pro level.
The thing that I love the most about being a designer and developer is that I'm learning something new every day.
