Hi there, I'm Fabrizio Van Marciano. Thank you for taking the time to check out my about page.
So, where do I begin?
The short of it all is: I'm a freelance web designer, front-end developer, fun-loving proud father of two amazing kids, and a devoted husband!
I currently live and work in North Devon, England, the UK, however, my client base is worldwide.
A true family guy!
When I'm not designing websites, I'm spending quality time with my beautiful family. Our #10yearchallenge is to buy a house in the Canary Islands (Gran Canaria) and migrate there, and, of course, I hope to continue my work as a freelance web designer and solopreneur.
How it all began
I started my online journey far back in 2006, not as a web designer, but as an artist selling original paintings online.
As a struggling artist, one of the things that frustrated me the most was the lack of tools or resources available for creating a simple website or online gallery.
You see, the world wide web was a lot different back in 2006, I can tell you. DIY website builder tools were not in abundance back then.
I decided to invest all of my spare time learning how to build a website for myself, through various online courses, videos, and books.
As the story goes, six years later, I ended up becoming a certified full-time freelance web designer and developer. Oh, and yes, I'm still an artist, because I love to paint. In fact, you can see some of my work here.
Designing beautiful, bespoke, WordPress websites since 2014
Over the last 5 years, I have thoroughly enjoyed working as a freelance web designer serving clients from all over the globe.
I've helped many startups, bloggers, entrepreneurs, and small businesses increase brand awareness and broaden their reach online through smart, conversion-focused web design that works.
As I work solely with WordPress, I have many years of experience and broad technical knowledge of this CMS platform, including the use of a variety of design and development tools, themes, and plugins.
If you are familiar with any of the following tools yourself, I have worked with Genesis Theme Framework, Thrive Architect and Thrive Themes, Elementor, and Divi. These days, however, the main tool that I use in all my web design projects is Oxygen Builder.
Passionate about website design
This might really sound like a cliche, but I'm extremely passionate about website design. Not just web design that looks great, but web design that actually works.
Web design that works: Conversion focused design to help you convert visitors into leads, and paying customers.
I know how much your business and your customers mean to you because I'm a small business owner myself.
I don't, for one single moment, want you to waste your time, money, and energy investing in web design that's not going to help you grow your business.
I believe that just because a design looks great, it doesn't necessarily mean it will work or turn your visitors into raving fans or paying customers.
Which is why I stand by and implement the growth-driven design methodology into my web design services. I believe I can help you achieve the growth and success your business deserves, so let's work together to design a website that delights, educates, inspires your users to take action and do business with you.
